Former Taxi and The European Chef Tim Martin Is Opening His Own Bar and Restaurant
Prepare your stomach for a dual-venue venture focusing on ageing meat and naturally fermented beverages.
After cooking up a storm at a host of Melbourne restaurants over the past 16 years, chef Tim Martin is branching out on his own. If you've enjoyed his culinary prowess at The Cut, Taxi Dining Room, The European, Maris and even Noosa's Berardo's in Queensland, you'll want to flock to his new dual-venue venture in South Yarra in 2017.
Setting up shop in Claremont Street, Harvest and Privi will quench your thirst, satisfy your stomach and provide your next group-dining spot. The former will be a bar and restaurant serving boutique wines by night and cafe-style fare by day, while the latter will be reserved for bookings of ten or more, with two private rooms accommodating parties of up to 50 people.
Seasonal produce and 'long lived' techniques will be Martin's focus, including ageing meat and butchery, plus small batch producers, craft brews and naturally fermented beverages. Whatever the menu ends up boasting, it's certain to go down a treat — Martin did win The Age's Young Chef of the Year gong back in 2015, after all.
