There are only a few things that can brighten your day in 2020. One of them being a giant lobster roll. 

Melbourne’s best seafood restaurant, Pinchy’s Champagne & Lobster Bar, will be hitting the road with executive chef Pierre Khodja, reviving Australia’s biggest lobster roll while taking its sustainable seafood on a round-trip through Melbourne. So if you’re looking for a unique, COVID-safe dining experience in Melbourne, this is it!

Popping up to offer a new Friday and Saturday takeaway option over a period of five weekends in five different suburbs, Pinchy’s Made by Sea Tour promises fresh seafood of the highest quality with the choice to add champagne, wine and desserts to complete the luxe dining experience for when you get home.

Available for pre-order only, dishes on offer as part of Pinchy’s Made by Sea Tour include:

  • Crab tacos ($7)
  • Truffle fries with white truffle aioli ($10)
