Executive Chef Alejandro Saravia is kicking off 2022 with the announcement of a second Farmer’s Daughters venue in Melbourne.

The 180-seat restaurant, dubbed Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters, will form a part of Federation Square’s Yarra building, which is set to undergo a renovation.

Victoria by Farmer’s Daughter will cover indoor and outdoor dining alongside formal and private dining rooms, an open kitchen and an interactive ingredients table.

The concept sees the same commitment to local Victorian produce as the 80 Collins restaurant, which focuses on the Gippsland region.

“Farmer’s Daughters has become synonymous with showcasing a true farm-to-table experience through a philosophy of sustainability, seasonality and celebrating Victorian produce,” says Saravia.

“Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters will be an extension of the team’s passion for regional Victoria, and Fed Square provides the perfect partner and location to bring this concept to life.”

The restaurant will spotlight provenance through a rotating, seasonal menu, with Saravia working with producers across the state.

Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters is slated to open in autumn this year.
