Rosebery doyens of deliciousness Frenchies aren’t just a couple of clever lads when it comes to brewing cracking beers or cooking tasty dishes, they also know exactly what it takes to fill a room. In the tradition of good food being a shared experience, and good beer not having an end in sight, they’ve launched their Frenchies Feast.
Every Thursday, 20 seats at their long French Oak table (felled and handmade by co-founder Vince de Soyres’ father in the Loire Valley, no less) are up for grabs. At $95 a pop, each guest is welcomed with a beer before being seated, and filled to the brim with three courses (each of multiple shared dishes), and also featuring a “masterpiece main”, which could be anything from a whole fish baked in puff pastry and carved at the table to a suckling pig.
Each course is served with generous jugs of two different beers, which are topped up as required, hence the “bottomless” title.
Given the finite number of seats available each week, you’ll need to book in to score yourself a seat, and given that we attended last week, can personally recommend that you arrive very hungry.
