An Edible History: From Gold Rush to Lunch Rush

An evening dining on history at restaurant Old Man Drew.

Old Man Drew has a long history, starting out as a grocery store servicing travelling gold miners in the 1860s, before being transformed into an Italian wine bar in the 1930s. Today's owners are delving deep into the building's past with this special event that touches on all the past lives of this site on Mount Alexander Road.

Taste Italian wines in the original bluestone cellar before a four-course meal inspired by the building's former uses. Get ready for lamb and barley soup, rib-eye with lemon myrtle and macadamia, gnocchi with burnt butter sage sauce and pavlova to finish, all made with produce from the kitchen garden.

History lessons have never been so tasty.
