Further highlights include gourmet tasting tours by bikefive-course foraged feasts, oyster masterclassesmid-winter barbeque parties, a 25-course vegetarian degustation and tequila tastings.

The special menus feature of Restaurant Month has something for all persuasions and wallet sizes. Available everywhere from The Culpeper to Lowbrow and Britomart's Ebisu, the 100 menus on offer will be set at three special price points: $25, $40 and $55+.
