Rare Hare Let's Do Lunch
Make a weekday break from the big smoke for this Good Food Month lunch spread.
UPDATE Thursday, June 10: Under current COVID-19 restrictions in Australia, there are restrictions on where Melburnians can travel. Check out the latest information on the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services website. You can also check out more figures and graphs on its Victorian coronavirus data page.
If you're looking for a cheeky excuse to get out of town this month, you'll find it down on the Mornington Peninsula at Willow Creek Vineyard's casual eatery Rare Hare. Sibling to the renowned Jackalope Hotel, the restaurant's plating up an exclusive Good Food Month lunch menu all the way through June.
From 12–5pm weekdays, book yourself a table to enjoy a produce-driven, woodfired feed teamed with a local tipple and some memorable views of the property's sloping green vineyards. $45 will get you a selection of starters — think, house-baked potato bread with Leontyna olive oil and sardines on toast with preserved lemon — followed by a main of harissa lamb rump with smoked yoghurt and green olive tapenade. You'll also enjoy tea, coffee and a glass of Rare Hare's signature red or white wine to match. And if your afternoon looks free, you can always stick around and make it a long lunch and get acquainted with a few more of the wine list's celebrated homegrown drops.
