On Saturdays, We Lunch

The best kind of Saturdays are those filled with seafood and champagne.

The long, lazy weekend lunch is up there among life's greatest pleasures — and it's one that the team at Brunswick East's Etta will be celebrating right through winter. On Saturday, May 20, the renowned eatery kicks off its new Saturday feasting series, dedicated to top-notch seafood and champagne.

The food lineup is set to change up weekly, though with shellfish season peaking, you can be sure of some sensational seafood no matter what. Each week's haul will be served as a tantalisingly stacked tower for $70 per person and enjoyed alongside the crackling fire from 12–2pm.

That'll be brimming with the likes of king prawns done in fish sauce and fermented chilli butter, arrow squid skewers matched with lemon balm and calamansi lime sauce, and chilled bugs and blue spanner crab, with black peppercorn and garlic butter for dipping.

And, since seafood and fizz are a match made in culinary heaven, Etta will be pouring out some primo champagne options to complement your lunch. Adding to the regular lineup of by-the-glass gems, there'll be a weekly-rotating champagne special pulled from the cellar just for the occasion. Etta's full wine list will be available, too.
