Pinchy's lobster-loaded linguine normally sets diners back a cool $48. But if you visit this CBD restaurant on a Thursday night, you'll score over 50% off, getting the dish for just $20. It's a proper bargain.

In May this year, the Bourke Street lobster and champagne bar received a big makeover, getting a new look, new chef and new menu. This pasta dish, packed with lobster and lifted by miso butter, tomatoes and basil, is a recent addition to the Pinchy's menu, but has already become a fan favourite.

This change — and the pasta deal — was inspired by all of Melbourne's recent restaurant closures.

Director Jeremy Schnick notes that: "With the constant cost-of-living pressures, nearby closures, the ongoing difficulties of CBD operation (particularly during winter), and a huge increase in wage costs post-Covid, the decision was clear for me."

"I found an amazing new Executive Chef [Barret Jones] and together we decided we needed to give guests something larger and distinctive in our delicious menu offering — something they can feel more value in, and slow down to spend time eating with friends or a loved one, appreciating what's in front of them."

And what better way to take in all the changes than with a generous bowl of lobster pasta for just $20?
