Ben Shewry from the Attica restaurant in Melbourne has opened two new ventures in the wake of Corona. The chef is now offering home meals for collection and delivery from his restaurant and him and his team will also open Attica Bakeshop: a new storefront serving the local community fresh bakes like pull apart hot garlic bread and Attica classics like Vegemite scrolls.
Attica’s “At Home” offer includes two different options menus, The Attica Classic and Ben Shewry's family meal, featuring signature from the restaurants 15-year history, including “potato cooked in the earth it was grown” and Ben's family lasagne. The team are also working on drinks matching chosen by Attica head sommelier Dom Robinson, including wine, beer, Attica signature cocktails and a variety of non-alcoholic options.
“We have never faced anything quite like this. The global restaurant industry is hurting, and the Attica team and I want to do whatever we can to be able to help our community, and the thing we know we can do well and take away some level of stress in terms of getting meals on the table for families, is by offering meals at home. This will keep our team employed, and helps ensure we as a restaurant set ourselves up for a positive future when we get through these challenges," said Shewry.
