What to expect? Chef Ash – who has also just released the news that she’ll be starring in Netflix’s hot new chefs competition, The Final Table – has designed three-, five-, and seven-course menus with bold and creative flavour combinations featuring a nod to sustainability. Think honey-cured beef with tapioca, egg yolk and soy; burnt leeks with butter, hazelnut and lemon; seabass with mussel, kombu and greens; and a dessert of milk and honey with golden almond crumb.

As for the space, the new upmarket restaurant has done away with the dark and edgy finishes of ASH and instead boasts light walls, local art, natural light and greenery.

Riverine Rabbit is now open for set menu lunches on Tuesdays to Saturdays, and dinner on Mondays to Saturdays.
