Richmond’s culinary scene is about to receive a delightful addition as the renowned cocktail bar and pizzeria, Flour Child, announces the opening of its second venue on Church Street this coming October. Building upon the success of its St Kilda establishment, Flour Child is set to bring its signature Italian-inspired offerings and innovative culinary experiences to a new locale.
An Elevated Dining Experience
The forthcoming venue, with a seating capacity of 200, promises a multifaceted dining experience. Guests can anticipate an inviting dining space, elevated by high table seating, and a charming intimate rooftop area that provides picturesque views of Melbourne’s iconic skyline.
Culinary Artistry Led by Executive Chef Alessandro Bellomunno
Under the skilled guidance of Executive Chef Alessandro Bellomunno, a master of Italian cuisine, the culinary offerings at Flour Child’s new venue will be infused with authentic Italian flavors. Chef Bellomunno’s Italian heritage will undoubtedly shine through, captivating diners with an array of delectable choices.
Exquisite Menu Highlights
The menu at Flour Child Richmond will be a culinary journey that includes an array of delectable selections. From delectable starters to a salumi and formaggi selection, and from tantalizing antipasti to refreshing insalata, each dish will be a testament to Chef Bellomunno’s commitment to excellence.
Diners can savor highlights such as the creamy whipped buffalo ricotta dip served with pinsa fritta, a refreshing roquette, pear, and parmesan salad, and a tantalizing burrata bar featuring tomato, pumpkin, or zucchini sauce.
The Signature Pinsa Romana Pizza
The heart of Flour Child’s offerings is undoubtedly its renowned Pinsa Romana Pizza—a culinary masterpiece that patrons can once again enjoy at the new Richmond location. Flavors like the La Porchetta, boasting porchetta with pumpkin puree and mozzarella, and a savory prosciutto and burrata iteration are set to delight even the most discerning pizza enthusiasts.
What sets Flour Child’s pizza apart is the exclusive use of The Di Marco Pinsa Flour, sourced from Rome, Italy. This specialty flour, combined with a 48-hour resting period for the dough, results in a pizza crust that is crispy on the outside, soft and airy on the inside—an experience that is both unique and delightful.
Just like its St Kilda counterpart, Flour Child Richmond will continue to offer an extensive array of traditional and experimental cocktails, further enhancing the overall dining experience.
An Exciting Addition to Richmond’s Culinary Scene
With its dedication to culinary excellence, inviting ambiance, and innovative approach to Italian cuisine, Flour Child’s new Richmond venue is poised to become a sought-after destination for food enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike.
Flour Child Richmond is scheduled to open its doors in October and can be found at 432 Church Street, Richmond. Prepare to embark on a culinary journey that captures the essence of Italy while offering a fresh and exciting dining experience unique to Flour Child.
