This South Wharf gastropub is the prime spot to enjoy a brew with a (riverside) view
Move over, Sydney, Melbourne has plenty of waterfront eateries that more than hold up to the restaurants in Circular Quay. Take General Assembly. The riverside pub is more than just somewhere to grab a steak sanga and a pint. General Assembly is proud of its gastropub roots, with a menu that spans the globe. Start with crisp eggplant chips or baked camembert, then move onto a spicy mapo tofu bowl or plate of caramelised onion and goat's cheese ravioli.
Keeping the pub steaks juicy is a Josper Oven – an unusual oven-grill hybrid that imparts a smoky flavour to whatever it cooks. Grab yourself a beer, cider, cocktail or bottle of vino, and you've got yourself a relaxed afternoon by the river. For an extra chilled arvo drop by on a Friday or Saturday to catch General Assembly's regular line-up of acoustic artists.
