Although it sounds very enticing and is only down the road, I've never made it to the Caxton Street Seafood Festival which is on again this Sunday (May 3). My friends report it's a bit of a bun fight, with long queues for the seafood, so this option from The Barracks might be just the solution.
The Barracks, Petrie Terrace are offering a ‘Business Class’ option for festival patrons. Pizzeria 1889, The Chelsea, Hogs Breath and Libertine Restaurant & Bar are all offering special seafood menus. There's also free parking for two hours for diners and entertainment from two live bands.
Menu options include a traditional Wood-Fired Pizza with prawns and calamari with a glass of Pinot Grigio from Pizzeria 1889, and Blacklip Mussels steamed in a tomato, chilli and coconut broth from the Chelsea Cafe. The Hogs Breath Cafe has a twist on Surf n Turf, with prime rib, king prawns and salt and pepper calamari. Libertine, with its ‘Indochine’ French Vietnamese cuisine, is offering tasting plates, streetfood and cocktails. Wild Pepper Leaf ‘Roll-Ups’ with crab, red grapefruit and toasted coconut, or Grilled Prawns with garlic, Vietnamese mint and lime are on offer. Business Class at the Seafood Festival
