It's been a year full of empty tables and creative pivots, but one of Australia's most celebrated restaurants is finally gearing up to open its doors to dine-in customers once more. Just don't go expecting the same Attica experience as those days of old.

Fresh off the back of newly eased restrictions, Ben Shewry's acclaimed fine diner is getting a post-lockdown reboot, reborn as Attica In Between until the end of the year. As the team has announced, "it isn't Attica pre-COVID and it isn't necessarily what Attica will be in the future, but it is Attica now."

It takes the form of a ten-person dining experience, showcasing ten brand-new dishes inspired by Shewry's last eight months of lockdown life. The menu speaks to the good, the bad and the many lessons learned, and it's yours to experience with up to nine of your favourite people.

Chewy Carrots at Attica

On offer only from Friday, November 13 until Saturday, December 12, this temporary Attica offering doesn't come cheap, clocking in at $5000 for up to ten diners, with beverages as extra. But hey, there's a lot to be said for scoring such an intimate meal of never-before-seen dishes, cooked by Shewry himself. And of course, who knows when something like this might ever be available again.

You can book your Attica In Between experience for Saturday lunch, or for dinner service Tuesdays through Saturdays. Just keep in mind that you'll need to pay for your table at the time of booking. Under current restrictions, the restaurant can fit two tables of ten at a time, so we suggest booking relatively fast if you want to head along.

Find Attica In Between at 74 Glen Eira Road, Ripponlea from Friday, November 13 until Saturday, December 12. Bookings are open now via the website.
