Brisbane's day-long celebration of seafood is coming back. Get ready to feast your way through the fruit of the sea — all without leaving the CBD — once again.
If oysters and Moreton Bay bugs are your idea of heaven in food form, you're in luck, as Sea to the City — Brisbane's Bug and Oyster Trail promises to focus on these two morsels. Fifteen riverside eateries will serve up their best takes on these two main ingredients at the event, which will take over the Brisbane river precinct from Eagle Street Pier to Customs House from 11am–6pm on Sunday, May 30.
Just what'll be on the menu is yet to be revealed, but Moreton Bay bug croissants, New Orleans-style fried oyster po' boys and grilled bugs with XO Sauce have featured in previous years. As for who'll be whipping up said dishes, the lineup includesMadame Wu, Riverland, Blackbird and Naga Thai, plus Coppa Spuntino, Rico's Bar and Restaurant, Fatcow Steak and Lobster, Customs House, Massimo Bar and Restaurant, City Winery, Mr & Mrs G's, Friday's, Navala Churrascaria, George's Seafood Paragon and Pig N Whistle.
You'll also find live music, pop-up bars and, of course, gorgeous river views. And, entry is free — although you'll need your wallet for whatever you'd like to eat and drink.
