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 Age Good Food Guide champions adding fine culinary pedigree to the local dining scene: Mister Jennings and Anchovy on Bridge Road; Union Dining and Noir on Swan Street, and Burnley Street stalwart The Grand.
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. The Mexican vibe can be found at Chingon and Fonda. Head to Swan Street for ethical eats at Feast of Merit. Embrace the hustle and bustle of the fast, fresh 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.
