Look For The Smoke, The Rose Street Market Is Being Transformed Into A Live-Fire Barbecue On Fridays

The much-loved Rose Street Market will be reimagined into a live-fire al fresco barbecue every Friday night, aptly titled The Fitzroy Feast.

The concept comes from Australian-born, British-based chef Anth Power. The name may sound familiar for a few reasons, foodies may know him from his time on Netflix’s Million Pound Menu, or perhaps it’s ringing bells after he hosted several pop-up restaurants in Melbourne earlier this year. 

As it turns out, Power hasn’t left the country since those pop-ups, and instead bunkered down to ride out lockdown in Australia. Now, with restrictions easing, the flame-focussed chef is serving up his barbecue to the northside.

The menu is yet to be announced, though anyone who’s aware of Powers’ cooking style won’t be surprised knowing they’ve called in a custom-built hearth, where he’ll cook sustainably sourced meats and vegetables above a mammoth charcoal fire pit.

For anyone wondering, yes, there’ll be a bar. Bodriggy is coming in hot with icy cold beers while a selection of local wines and prosecco will be on offer, too. 

The Fitzroy Feast is staying true to the traditions of barbecues with a casual ‘first-in, best fed’ policy from 2pm to 10pm each and every Friday. Drop in from this week onward.
