We are excited to welcome a new member of our foodie community – the talented lads at Shed 5, a Mediterranean restaurant with an emphasis on Greek food and wood fire oven cooking. Shed 5 is respected Sydney restauranteur Stan Sarris’ first venture in Melbourne (previous venues in Sydney include Banc, Wine Banc and Prime). Stan has assembled an experienced team with Vas Donoudis, previously of Mama Baba, heading up the kitchen, and Tim Muschamp from Sydney’s Willow Tree Hotel and Kingsleys Woolloomooloo as Restaurant Manager.
Traditional and modern cooking methods, using seasonal ingredients where dishes are served from oven to table, reflect the raw and industrial space of Shed 5. Printed cans and glass jars adorning the shelves above the 3-tonne steel bar provide diners with a historical reminder of South Wharf Promenade’s previous life. There are 74 seats inside, including a private dining room for 12, as well as the 40 seats outside with stunning views of the Yarra River.
Follow Vas on twitter (@vasdonoudis) for a birds eye view of goings on in the kitchen, and have a sneak peek here at the beautiful venue and dishes (courtesy of Vas’ iphone). You can also follow Shed 5 on twitter and facebook.
