Let's Lunch at Howard Smith Wharves — Winter 2023

Tuck into a cheap weekday lunch with a riverside view all winter at Howard Smith Wharves.

No one should spend their lunch break eating at their desk, but breaking that habit isn't always easy. From Monday, May 29–Friday, September 1, the Howard Smith Wharves precinct is giving you plenty of motivation to step away from the computer. Head to the riverside spot from Monday–Friday for a middle-of-the-day meal all winter and your lunch will cost $25.

Five HSW venues are getting in on the deal, each serving up three options — so you can pick between multiple dishes at Felons Brewing Co, Felons Barrel Hall, Felons Fish 'n' Chipper (doing walk-ins only), Mr Percival's and Ciao Papi. Or, you can work your way through them all (and stare at their slightly different views of the water) across the frosty season. You'll just need to keep an eye on each eatery's opening hours — and, while you can just rock up, bookings are recommended.

As for what you'll be eating during the returning — and now three-month-long — Let's Lunch festivities, the specials are varied. Fish pie, short ribs and truffle pizza are on offer at Felons, while mud crab tom yum, suckling pig and crispy fish salad, and a bean curd herb curry are on the menu at the brewery's Barrel Hall. Over at the Fish 'n' Chipper, there's seafood chowder, half a rock lobster and a vegetable-packed buddha bowl.

For dining over the water, Mr Percival's is doing sautéed mussels, slow-braised lamb shoulder with polenta and baked eggplant parmigiana. And if you're keen on Ciao Papi, you'll be eating tortellini di carne with truffles, caviar and spanner crab linguini, and artichoke and pecorino gnocchi.

Unlike in previous years, you will need to buy any drinks on top this time around, however.
