You won't go hungry in Richmond, whether it's from packing in the pies at the footy, brunching in a cosy cafe, fine dining in a hatted restaurant, Vietnamese treats or pizza slices after a gig.
Pubs and footy
Prop up the bar and soak up pre-footy atmosphere at renovated working class watering holes like the London Tavern, the Richmond Club Hotel, the Swan, the Great Britain, the Spread Eagle and Prince Alfred Hotel. Then head to the 'G to cheer on your assigned or adopted Aussie Rules football team.
Tip your hat to the Good Food Guide champions adding fine culinary pedigree to the local dining scene: Anchovy on Bridge Road and Noir on Swan Street.
Dreaming of sushi? Do Jiro proud and immerse yourself in an okamase experience at three-hatted Minamishima.
Flirt with the south side of the river at Baby Pizza and Kong on Church Street. Head to Swan Street for ethical eats at Feast of Merit, and modern takes on Mexican and Vietnamese at Fonda and Hanoi Hannah New Quarter, respectively. Embrace the hustle and bustle of traditional, fast and exceptional Vietnamese food on Victoria Street, Melbourne's Little Saigon.
Typically 'Melbourne' cafes like Pillar of Salt, Touchwood, Reunion and Co. and Friends of Mine ensure you're never far from a decent coffee.
