Melbourne's new contemporary house of Aburi sushi, The Modern Eatery, is now open in Richmond, located on Swan Street, Richmond, after huge success with two venues in Perth.
The Modern Eatery is the brainchild of owners and best friends since high school, Jason Tan and Edward and focuses on serving sushi ‘Aburi’ style, where the fish is lightly seared directly from the flame so that it’s partially grilled and raw to create a deep flavour. It’s the sauce pairings that make The Modern Eatery’s Aburi so unique.
Other highlights that create a stand out offering include Salmon Oshi (compressed sushi), Craft Rolls such as Chasing Sunset with seared salmon, egg omelette and sweet potato and The Green Leaf Roll with deep fried zucchini and cream cheese. Or try the Miyazaki Chicken from Head Chef's hometown in Miyazaki, Japan.
The Modern Eatery prescribes an ethos of drawing people together through food and cultural connection, which comes through the menu's emphasis on sharing plates and small dishes that encourage diners to try a variety of options. The restaurant also boasts a wide selection of Japanese whisky, cocktails, sake and Japanese and local Victorian craft beer.
Designed by Studio Equator (designers of Chalawan and Glamp Cocktail Bar) this two-level, 90-seat restaurant’s interior is emulates sleek Japanese elements of style in a relaxed ambience. The open sushi bar, puts the chefs on display as the craft fresh and high-quality sashimi and nigiris.
A fresh and exciting venue with a vibrant yet homely feel, The Modern Eatery is a wonderful addition to Swan Street, Richmond's bustling food scene and is the perfect place to meet with friends, colleagues and loved-ones to enjoy a delicious meal together.
