The Riverine Rabbit is an experiment in conscious dining, purely locally sourced, seasonal and sustainable ingredients cooked in a charcoal Josper oven. Head Chef/Patron Ash Heeger trained under Chef Luke Dale Roberts at La Colombe and then at The Test Kitchen, her path in food is on fire, definitely a chef to keep an eye on.
They do a full vegetarian as well as a pescetarian menu, so every taste is accommodated. Off the full tasting menu you will experience amazing dishes paired cleverly with great wines.
Try everything, but specifically we enjoyed the dressed oyster with buttermilk, citrus and fennel paired with a bubbly Klein Constantia MCC Brut. Also the honey-cured beef served with tapioca, egg yolk, soy and alliums with a Lismore Chardonnay, outstanding.
The ideas and dishes keep pouring out of this kitchen, beautiful and delicious, highly recommended.
