Pier Farm has taken over the site previously occupied by Anchorage. The venue has been refreshed and refurbished to produce fresh and authentic Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Melbourne restaurateur, Roberto Scheriani (previously of The Italian), opted for a sea change to start a new venture for Williamstown locals and Melbourne foodies. Pier Farm will produce a warm and inviting environment and a menu that boasts local ingredients with a focus on beautiful fresh seafood, pasta and salads. Matteo Bartaletti (previously of North Bondi Italian Food, Movida) is thrilled to come on board as head chef. Born in Italy and having worked extensively across Tuscany and Dubai, Bartaletti spent time in Sydney on his last stint in Australia and has now taken residency in Williamstown. The raw bar will offer delicacies such as Sydney Rock Oysters, or something else light and delicious such as the carpaccio of cured flounder, grapes and pumpkin seeds with a verjus dressing or the DeVodier Prosciutto di Culatello with fresh figs and gnocco fritto. Main courses originate from the sea or the paddock, with plates such as the pan-fried fillet of John Dory with pippies, caper berries and cherry tomatoes sitting on the menu alongside the dry aged, grass fed rib eye with pickled mushrooms and crispy shallots. Accompaniments such as fennel and butter leaf salad with a fresh lemon dressing and sweet peas with fresh mint and pancetta will also evoke the freshness of summer. Those who prefer pasta will be able to enjoy likes of handmade black truffle ravioli in a veal ragout with parmiagiano reggiano or a trofie pasta with potatoes, green beans and hand pounded pesto. Sommelier George Haralambopoulous, a long-time friend of Roberto’s and something of a Williamstown icon having been at Anchorage for the past two years, has created an extensive wine list with over 140 different drops available. George and Roberto first met over 30 years ago, both working for the late Donlevy Fitzpatrick at Vic Ave Café in Albert Park. “While Robbie was busy winning hats and awards, I was sommelier at Werribee Mansion Hotel for 14 years being recognised for adventurous food and wine pairings for some 15 international chefs. Quite a few customers followed me across to Williamstown to continue to their wine journey,” says George. “We will showcase classic Australian and iconic Europeans wines, breaking it up with new and upcoming winemakers both local and abroad,” he continues. Pier Farm is the perfect location to enjoy world-class food against an inimitable waterfront backdrop. The venue will also operate as a function space – ideal for a summer event or wedding – that will give beautiful and memorable experiences for a special occasion. Pier Farm will be renovated in stages, with plans for further development throughout 2018.

29th apartment is a re-creation of an apartment originally inhabited by the infamous Katishe: a salacious struggling artist who worked the local streets by night to support her passion and hopes of one day being discovered for her talents as a painter. A little after the time Jack Kerouac and Sid Vicious rented rundown rooms at New York City’s Chelsea Hotel, Katishe created her own slice of NYC at 29th apartment. When this gorgeous eccentric walked the dangerous streets at night and brought the rough and tumble men and women back to her place, none of her clients expected the maze of abstract oil paintings that stacked the walls. Fixated with the underground art and cultural movement that Andy Warhol had championed (and perhaps used to being up all night with her trade), most of Katishe’s paintings tell stories from the streets of NYC, the city that never sleeps. Since her mysterious disappearance in the early 80s, 29th apartment has only existed as a memory until 2009 when the current owners of the bar found her self-portrait, ‘Katishe’ as well as remnants of her personal life that are thought to have been part of her night time craft. Paying homage to this hard-working woman, the new owners re-imagined 29 Fitzroy Street as a bar and casual art gallery. With a fish tank that houses a now water-discoloured dildo in the cute bedroom, a decal of a back alleyway that leads to the toilets and a bookcase full of Katishe’s literary inspiration, 29th apartment brings the underbelly of St Kilda and New York together in a blend that can only be understood by taking a look into the heart of Katishe. 29th apartment welcomes you to ring its buzzer and enter into the comfy lounge room for a night of NYC inspired artwork, music, food and beverages.
