Get your crackers, hammers and bibs at the ready – there’s a crustacean festival coming to Sydney – Say hi to The Morrison Crab Carnival!

The Morrison is bringing back nearly a month of shellfish shenanigans for their annual crab carnival. We’re talking crab menus, crab cocktails and crab races. It’s a crustacean-filled paradise for seafood fans.

The ultimate celebration of the crustacean, 28 days of crabby festivities will run from Monday 20th March until Sunday 16th April 2017.

With an additional 8 crab-themed dishes (available during lunch and dinner) on the menu, you’d be crackers not to try it one! Winter warmers such as the King Crab Mac & Cheeses (So creamy and rich and crabbily delightful!) or the Blue Swimmer ‘Nabe’ in miso broth to share – as well as Crab Doughnut Holes and Crab Po Boy’s for a bite-sized crab snack!

From acclaimed chef Sean Connolly (Astral and Sean’s Kitchen), comes The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room. Located in the heart of Sydney, between the CBD and The Rocks, this New York-style brasserie is the perfect place for an after work drink with a bite to eat, a plate of fresh oysters or a sit-down menu to enjoy with friends. Sean is knows for using simple, locally sourced ingredients, and prides himself on using only the freshest produce, much of which is free-range, is known for plating up some of the best seafood in Sydney.  Trust me, I’ve eaten at a few of his venues (catch my review for Sean’s Kitchen in Adelaide), the man is a genius and The Morrison Crab Carnival only scratches the surface of what’s on offer.

For all the oyster lovers out there, be sure to check out their $1 Oyster Hour, every Wednesday between 6 – 7pm.
