Whether it be high end dining in the formal Restaurant at the top of the stairs the bustle of the stylish Grill or the café society of the Cellar Bar, quality is the order of the day in this exciting venue.“A Restaurant is the sum of many parts, like a home! It is not so much about the walls but more about the people those walls house”. ~ Guy Grossi.
Pier Farm has taken over the site previously occupied by Anchorage. The venue has been refreshed and refurbished to produce fresh and authentic Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.Melbourne restaurateur, Roberto Scheriani (previously of The Italian), opted for a sea change to start a new venture for Williamstown locals and Melbourne foodies. Pier Farm will produce a warm and inviting environment and a menu that boasts local ingredients with a focus on beautiful fresh seafood, pasta and salads.Matteo Bartaletti (previously of North Bondi Italian Food, Movida) is thrilled to come on board as head chef. Born in Italy and having worked extensively across Tuscany and Dubai, Bartaletti spent time in Sydney on his last stint in Australia and has now taken residency in Williamstown.The raw bar will offer delicacies such as Sydney Rock Oysters, or something else light and delicious such as the carpaccio of cured flounder, grapes and pumpkin seeds with a verjus dressing or the DeVodier Prosciutto di Culatello with fresh figs and gnocco fritto.Main courses originate from the sea or the paddock, with plates such as the pan-fried fillet of John Dory with pippies, caper berries and cherry tomatoes sitting on the menu alongside the dry aged, grass fed rib eye with pickled mushrooms and crispy shallots.Accompaniments such as fennel and butter leaf salad with a fresh lemon dressing and sweet peas with fresh mint and pancetta will also evoke the freshness of summer.Those who prefer pasta will be able to enjoy likes of handmade black truffle ravioli in a veal ragout with parmiagiano reggiano or a trofie pasta with potatoes, green beans and hand pounded pesto.Sommelier George Haralambopoulous, a long-time friend of Roberto’s and something of a Williamstown icon having been at Anchorage for the past two years, has created an extensive wine list with over 140 different drops available. George and Roberto first met over 30 years ago, both working for the late Donlevy Fitzpatrick at Vic Ave Café in Albert Park.“While Robbie was busy winning hats and awards, I was sommelier at Werribee Mansion Hotel for 14 years being recognised for adventurous food and wine pairings for some 15 international chefs. Quite a few customers followed me across to Williamstown to continue to their wine journey,” says George.“We will showcase classic Australian and iconic Europeans wines, breaking it up with new and upcoming winemakers both local and abroad,” he continues.Pier Farm is the perfect location to enjoy world-class food against an inimitable waterfront backdrop. The venue will also operate as a function space – ideal for a summer event or wedding – that will give beautiful and memorable experiences for a special occasion.Pier Farm will be renovated in stages, with plans for further development throughout 2018.
The name Shakahari, incidentally, is the Hindi word for "vegetarian". For more than forty years Shakahari has been one of this city's most innovative restaurants.Eschewing compromise, Shakahari has maintained a firm commitment to the two fundamentals of its cuisine: It is completely vegetarian and it uses only fresh, natural ingredients. Menus are changed quarterly to take full advantage of seasonally available fruits and vegetables and there are no artificial ingredients or colourants used.Shakahari has pioneered other fields in its fascinating development. Beginning in the early '70s by introducing ideas from Japanese, Chinese and Thai culinary traditions. In style, Shakahari's cuisine has always been East-West even before this term became the familiar way to describe cooking which uses Asian ingredients and skills in a European context.Today this restaurant's wide appeal rests on its expertise in creating meals which are light but satisfying, natural but attentively detailed in their preparation and presentation.In keeping with its original Indian inspiration, the interior design of Shakahari's Carlton location uses basic village tones and simple furnishings. It's only indulgence are two magnificent cloth paintings of the 19th century Nathvara (Rajasthan school) and a series of the earliest devotional posters from the Ravi Varma Steam Press, Poona.
