Wave your crab claws in the air, because the CBD's newest pop-up is dedicated to two of life's finer things: seafood and Champagne. After a successful run at HWKR Melbourne back in 2017, Pinchy's has a returned to the city with brand new menu.

Located on Emporium's level three food court, Pinchy's will serve up prawn, Alaskan king crab and Maine lobster rolls along with killer sides like truffle fries and creamy crab croquettes. Head chef Thibault Boggio, previously of Vue De Monde, has big plans to expand the menu, too, with dishes like smoked ocean trout and octopus on the horizon. There's also a big focus on sustainability, with the team sourcing from environmentally conscious suppliers in the US.

And, because a lunch break lobster roll wouldn't be complete without a glass of something bubbly, the pop-up will also offer a selection of signature pours courtesy of Veuve Clicquot.

The pop-up is open from 10am–7pm Saturday to Wednesday, and until 9pm on Thursday and Friday.
