Come Sunday, March 26, Melbourne's CBD is set to be the place to be for local seafood lovers, as Taxi Kitchen reels in diners for a one-off Melbourne Food & Wine Festival lunch celebrating some of the state's best wild-caught ocean-fresh goodness.

Top Victorian fisheries will be thrown into the spotlight across a four-course feast featuring plates like freshly shucked sea urchin roe with sour plum and fried nori; San Remo octopus starring coconut, ginger and lemongrass; and crayfish rice finished with shiitake, lup chong and a son-in-law egg.

There'll be snacks and a cocktail to kick things off, while the lunch is set to be paired with a curation of Victorian wines from the likes of Paringa Estate and Leura Park. You'll also be treated to tunes from a live funk and soul act as you dine.

Tickets to the feast come in at $184, including matched vino, plus a glass of local sparkling wine and a cocktail on arrival.
