Merretts Restaurant executive chef Luke Carpenter has prepared a degustation menu brimming with mussels to accompany a selection of craft beers from Port Stephens-based Murray’s Craft Brewing Co.

Surrounded by boats bobbing on the water under the stars, guests will be treated to Carpenter’s three-course dinner on the boardwalk. The dinner costs $60 per person. Bookings are essential on 49842555.

Cafe showcases Aussie beer

BEER lovers, rejoice. The highly anticipated The Grain Store is opening its doors in Newcastle’s east end this week.

The iconic Scott Street site formerly known as The View Factory has reopened as a ‘‘craft beer cafe’’ selling 100per cent Australian beer. It is the brainchild of Corey Crooks and his wife Kristy, who previously held the licence at the Albion Hotel in Wickham.

Bacchus degustation dinner

THEY say great minds think alike, and that two heads are better than one.

If that is the case then the next winemakers dinner at Bacchus should not be missed.

Bacchus head chef Tim Montgomery and Alex Head, of Head Wines, have joined forces to create a five-course degustation dinner at the King Street restaurant on May 30.

Head worked with the likes of Tyrrells in the Hunter Valley, as well as Torbreck, Laughing Jack and Cirillo Estate Wines in the Barossa Valley, prior to acquiring a producer’s licence and releasing his first wines.

The dinner will highlight his current releases which will be matched with Montgomery’s fine food. The 6.30pm dinner costs $120 per person. Book on 49271332.

Subo owners take holiday

AFTER earning a coveted hat in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide Awards, as well as a bunch of other accolades in the past year, Suzie and Beau Vincent of contemporary Newcastle bistro Subo are set to take a well-earned holiday.

The couple will briefly close their popular restaurant from June 24 until July 10 to enjoy their first big break since opening in November 2011.

‘‘We’re just closing for a couple of weeks,’’ Suzie said. ‘‘We are going to Japan for 10 days, just for fun and some inspiration.’’

Laneway dining popular

PATRONS of Newcastle’s Caffestry have been enjoying more alfresco dining since the Pacific Street cafe introduced laneway dining.

With a Melbourne-esque vibe, the laneway between Caffestry and the Backpackers By The Beach has been filled with patrons enjoying the great outdoors since summer.

‘‘We are just making use of any available space we have in order to give people somewhere comfortable to sit and enjoy a coffee, some nice food and the atmosphere,’’ Caffestry’s Kynan Smyth said.

In conjunction with Podspace, the cafe has hosted film screenings, a mural artist and a jazz guitarist in the laneway.
