The River, Moruya

Firstly, a reminder that this coming Friday (1 April) is the monthly Produce Dinner. The menu will include a range of autumn produce: apples, pears and Jerusalem artichokes. Also local organic free range rabbits - wait until you taste them! - and fish (just what we don't know yet, but simply the best - what's caught on the day).


Cost: $65 for four courses, with wine extra (byo wine if you wish, as is usual on a Friday night). Please book.
And of course, our regular weekly specials are available as follows:
* lunch specials, Wednesdays to Saturdays, $35 for two courses, including a glass of house wine
* dinner specials, Wednesdays and Thursdays, $42 for three courses from a short, seasonal menu that we choose each week depending on availability.
The full a la carte menu is available at all times, plus our degustation menu ($75 per head for five courses). We'd like to encourage you to think about this menu - we have been told by some of our city guests that it is incredible value for money. It's also your opportunity to sit back and let us do not only the cooking but also the thinking. We prepare you range of dishes that showcase our skills and most importantly, the exciting range of produce that is available to us here on the coast.

EASTER HOURS
Easter is fast approaching. We will be operating our normal hours, so closed Sunday evening and Monday, so we recommend you book early if you would like to visit us.

RESERVATIONS
Please call us on 02 4474 5505 for bookings.

All the best,
Tim, Tobie and Peter

Dear Friends of The RIVER Moruya,

2011 has started on a strong note for us, and much kinder than it has been to many Australians and now New Zealanders. We know that some of you will have friends and families affected by one or other of these natural disasters. Our thoughts are with you, and them.

We have been fortunate that the south coast has missed the extremes of weather. It is certainly greener than a year ago. This has benefited The RIVER in that our suppliers have been going gangbusters with the quality and variety of their produce this spring and summer. This will continue into autumn. So for us, it is very much business as usual with the joy of very high quality local produce for us to present to you.

After a very busy December-January, we are now back into the rhythm of the year at The RIVER, and as always in tune with the seasons and the food choices and flavours those seasons bring. Friday next week (4 March) we have our monthly Local Produce Dinner. We will be featuring figs, potatoes, fish (we are not sure what species, it depends on what is caught) and, possibly, sweet corn (if it is still available).

Cost: $65 for four courses, with wine extra (byo wine if you wish, as is usual on a Friday night). Please book.

And of course, our regular specials are back, ie:

* lunch specials, Wednesdays to Saturdays, $35 for two courses, including a glass of house wine

* dinner specials, Wednesdays and Thursdays, $42 for three courses from a short, seasonal menu that we choose each week depending on availability.

The full a la carte menu is available at all times, plus our degustation menu ($75 per head for five courses).

SOME CHANGES TO OUR RHYTHM IN 2011

You may recall that mid last year we said we had, after much soul searching, decided to put The RIVER restaurant up for sale. The soul searching has continued over the past months and finally, we have what we think is very good news, and a result with which we three are very happy. We hope you will be too. Pete is buying Tim's and Tobie's share of the restaurant, with Easter Sunday to be the final day for Tim and Tobie.

Pete says it will be business as usual - yes, he does have some ideas for growing The RIVER and the experiences it can offer you, but in the short term it will be a case of finding and training staff for the kitchen to fill some large holes. He (and Tim and Tobie too) is delighted that Jess has agreed to stay on and run front-of-house.

Tim and Tobie are going to take some time out - both have been in kitchens since their teens and they want to take a break, including three months overseas checking out food (they already have an extensive of list of places they want to check out). Then it will be back to the South Coast and deciding what next. Food and produce is in their blood, they are passionate believers in the Slow Food Movement and are excited about progress the South Coast has been making on that score. So let's wait and see what will eventuate.

And The RIVER has not seen the last of them. Tim will continue to run the garden in the backyard at the The RIVER, where the team grows many of the herbs they use.

All the best,

Dear Friends of The River,

Hello again. We are well settled into autumn here on the South Coast, albeit a wetter than usual one. It's been another busy month, including with Easter, and wonderful to see so many of you our regulars, plus new faces. If you have been in you may have met our new front of house Manager, Merrin. We are delighted to have her on board - having a professional team front of house is as important to us as the crew in the kitchen (indeed, from your perspective it might be even more essential as the staff serving you are the ones that you interact with most and make all the difference to the ambience and service, ie. to your all-round experience of the evening). So, welcome Merrin. Also a big thank you to Jess, who is heading off to try new places and new experiences.
This coming Friday, 4 May is our monthly Local Produce Dinner. The menu this month will include calamari, tuna, lamb and rhubarb. The cost: $65, wine extra, but being a Friday night you can bring your own wine (with a small opening/corkage fee).
Please telephone to book, so you are not disappointed. The Produce Dinners are always popular.
Our other regulars are also on:
Lunch specials, Wednesdays to Saturdays, $38 for two courses, including a glass of house wine or three set courses for $42, including a glass of house wine.
Dinner specials, Wednesdays and Thursdays, $44 for three courses from a short, seasonal menu that we choose each week, depending on seasonal availability.
The full a la carte menu is available all the time, plus our degustation menu ($75 per head for five courses or $105 if you would us to match the wines) where you get to sit back and enjoy a menu that features some of our favourites, again with a seasonal flavour and with the courses chosen to complement one another.
And finally, finally our new website is live and thanks to everyone who has already been on line at www.therivermoruya.com.au or visited us on Facebook. We intend updating the site regularly, especially the menu and the wine list, so it will be particularly useful for anyone who enjoys anticipating in advance what they might eat and drink. Please bear in mind, we do our best to have everything as listed on the website but that occasionally we can't, for example, get a particular ingredient on the day, so may need to make changes. But certainly our wine list should be pretty much as stated. On that note, we are really delighted with the range of wines we offer, both showcasing the 'local' wines, plus those from elsewhere in Australia and a few, in our view, really choice but well priced wines from overseas.
RESERVATIONS
Please call us on 02 4474 5505 for bookings.
If we don't see you over Easter, we hope you have most enjoyable time. If you are driving to the coast, please, please take great care.
All the best,
Pete
