In autumn next year, you’ll be delighted by a new restaurant on Fed Square’s riverside. In this new space, your taste buds will be transported on a culinary journey around our state. Discover a seasonal menu that champions Victoria, such as High Country wines, the paddocks of the west and the seas of the east. Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters will arrive in 2022.
Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters
This 180-seater restaurant is a partnership between Fed Square and the Farmer’s Daughters team, with Executive Chef Alejandro Saravia at the helm. Farmer’s Daughters, a three-storey farm-to-table venue, opened in Melbourne earlier this year, and was inspired by the beauty and produce of Gippsland.
Now, at Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters, they’re taking it a step further by celebrating the entire state. They’ve spent the past two years developing and refining a rotating, seasonal menu that would work for this concept.
Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters will collaborate with well-known regional venues, as well as source unsung ingredients and small local farmers, growers and producers.
“Farmer’s Daughters has become synonymous with showcasing a true farm to table experience through a philosophy of sustainability, seasonality and celebrating Victorian produce,” said Saravia. “Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters will be an extension of the team’s passion for regional Victoria, and Fed Square provides the perfect partner and location to bring this concept to life.”
Find this dining experience at Fed Square’s Yarra Building
You might remember the Yarra Building from the Apple store debacle of 2019. This building will soon be home to this culinary experience.
As part of a $20 million investment by the Victoria Government to enhance Fed Square, the Yarra Building will be upgraded to improve space functionality and allow for outdoor dining on the riverside. Thankfully, these upgrades will also preserve the unique architecture of the site.
“We’re proud for Fed Square to be a symbol of Victoria and everything that makes our state great,” said Fed Square CEO Caroline Ralphsmith. “As we welcome visitors back to Victoria, Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters will be a perfect introduction to the quality of produce, creativity and culture that our state boasts, in the heart of the city.”
Expect a formal dining room, outdoor terrace, interactive ingredients table, open kitchen and private dining rooms, when Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters opens next year.
