Paddock-to-plate takes on new meaning at Collingwood’s Project Forty Nine. The versatile space is a cafe and deli by day, restaurant and wine bar at night, and regularly plays host to functions and events. Using produce from their farm in northeast Victoria, and from a handful of small-scale producers, each offering at Project 49 is driven by ingredients.
In the mornings enjoy Italian coffee, house-made baked goods and fresh menu offerings inspired by what’s in season. After brekky, stroll through the deli and peruse the shelves of local Victorian produce. If you stop by for lunch or dinner, head chef Tim Newitt — also a Beechworth native —will whip you up some modern Australian offerings with a pinch of Italian influence.
Whether you’re eating, drinking or taking produce away, rest assured that it’s fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced at Project 49.
