There are tasty vegetarian options in each course, and we can also cater for vegans – just advise of any dietary requirements upon booking.
Scarf has recruited a new group of front of house trainees who are keen to bust into hospitality jobs. Scarf trainees are young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who face barriers to work. During the Spring Scarf season, they’ll engage in a bunch of training sessions which span formal service, wine, cocktails, beer, coffee and more. Then, during Tuesday night Scarf Dinners, the trainees will learn the ins and outs of front of house service, whilst being supported by their mentors, who come from fantastic venues like Gerald’s Bar, Garden State Hotel and Market Lane. Scarf programs offer a chance for trainees to build their knowledge, skills, confidence and networks, whilst engaging in paid work experience during Scarf Dinners.
As always, we’ll offer a fabulous drinks list thanks to generous support from Punt Road Wines, Little Creatures, The West Winds Gin, STARWARD Whisky, Casa Mariol Vermut Negre, Daylesford & Hepburn Mineral Springs Co, Vertue of the Coffee Drink and Larsen & Thompson tea. Please note Scarf Dinners are not BYO.
Previous Scarf seasons have been held at The Grace Darling, The Lincoln, The Robert Burns Hotel, Higher Ground Melbourne, Rupert on Rupert, Mesa Verde, Top Paddock and Markov.
