Copper Pot

What they say

“The idea is to close the distance between producer and customer, and support the local economies that in turn support us. Our farmers and fishers have strong environmental ethics – from Great Ocean Ducks to Romarro Farm and Meatsmiths, Angelica Organic Farm, Flinders Island lamb and Port Phillip mussels."

Signature Dishes

Heirloom carrots with yoghurt and spiced nuts; Port Phillip mussels with white wine, potato, and parsley; and dark beer and rye bread, schmalz, and whipped butter.

What we say

The head chef who took London restaurant Hélène Darroze from one Michelin star to two, Ashley Davis is a fan of classical European cooking with a low-impact approach. This is a place that thinks locally – all produce is Victorian – while its heart belongs to Europe. You’ll find house-made flat bread served with schmalz and whipped butter, pork rillettes with cornichons and baguette, Spain-by-way-of-Williamstown fried whitebait with saffron mayonnaise, and confit duck pappardelle with pecorino. Think of it as a culinary tour of Europe, without the carbon emissions of getting there.

What others say

“It’s a place of small and large plates, of sharing (of course), of international drops, and a menu billed as a ‘road trip through Europe’.”

–Dan Stock, Herald Sun
