By Jo Rittey

 

Richmond’s Bridge Road will again host an event designed to highlight the cultural diversity and rich food experiences along this iconic thoroughfare.  Bridge Road’s food and wine establishments will be host to six specialized gourmet tours, each guided by the event’s very own culinary guides.
Divided into four precincts, River, Town Hall, Burnley and Richmond Hill, the six individual Bridge Road Gathering- After Dark food adventures will take in five to six restaurants and bars in each tour, located within walking distance, over the course of approximately three hours of culinary fascination.  Melbourne’s food adventurers will visit old favourites and newcomers alike whilst enjoying tastings, masterclasses, demonstrations, stories and loads of eats and drinks as they move from venue to venue to experience the best Bridge Road has to offer.

Two tours will take place over two fun filled nights of food crawling. The first adventure will kick off at 6.30 pm whilst the second will take off at 7.30 pm for approximately 3 hours each.
