Sunday, May 29. That’s the day you need to mark your diaries. That is if you’re a big fan of seafood and are slowly remembering that the return of Dine BNE City means the return of Sea to the City, Brisbane’s Bug and Oyster Trail that connects Eagle Street Pier to Customs House.
Although the Sea to the City Bug and Oyster Trail has been announced, we’re still waiting on news from which restaurants will be participating this year. However, if previous years are anything to go by (and your knowledge of the area in question is in tip-top shape), you’ll know that there’s going to be plenty on offer from some of Brisbane’s best seafood restaurants.
Obviously, oysters are going to be on the menu and so will Moreton Bay bugs. Each participating restaurant will be serving up its own take on these so you can go from one to another all day between 11am-6pm eating your fill from pop-up stalls at Brisbane’s best riverfront venues. But, that’s not all. You’ll be able to find prawns and a whole range of fish cooked to perfection as well.
Previous participating restaurants have included Madame Wu, COPPA, Rico Bar & Dining, Fatcow Steak & Lobster, Customs House, Massimo, Riverland, Naga, City Winery, Mr & Mrs G’s, Friday’s, Navala Churrascaria, George’s Seafood Paragon and Pig N Whistle. We’ve got our hopes set high for the Bug and Oyster Trail in 2022.
And, very important to note, the trail itself is free. No need to get a ticket. Just get down to Eagle Street Pier, Customs House and the space between to get your hands on oysters and Moreton Bay bugs.
Keep an eye on this space for participating venues as well as the all-important menus so you can start making your list of what and which you’re going to eat first.
