The Moldy Fig

The Moldy Fig is a family run restaurant bar in Brunswick bringing New Orleans style to Melbourne. Focusing on classic Southern American home cooking plated for sharing for that real southern spread paired with classic cocktails, local wines and Louisiana beer. The cuisine of New Orleans originated as a fusion of French, Spanish and Italian with influences from Native American Indians and spices from people of colour from Africa and the Caribbean creating flavours unique to anywhere else in the world. Located in the heart of the Brunswick East dining district with its huge mural of saxophone legend Dexter Gordon, The Moldy Fig is impossible to miss. With live music every night of the week, featuring various styles of jazz and blues, it's never a dull night at The Moldy Fig. Cajun Creole restaurant run by mother and daughter team Dorelle and Vivian - The Moldy Fig is all about authentic soul food, boozy drinks and live music. The closest you can get to New Orleans without hopping on a plane. The name was inspired by a tale told by ladies over a few Abita Beers in New Orleans bar. Originally an insult, the term 'Moldy Fig' has now been embraced by jazz players and fans alike as a high compliment for players of early jazz. The Moldy Fig in the heart of Brunswick's dining district is bringing the New Orleans vibe to Melbourne. Featuring free live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night we're bringing the NOLA vibe to you. Come try classic Southern American bites from our share style menu or sip on cocktails along the bar. Enjoy Happy Hour from 5:00pm to 7:00pm daily and ALL NIGHT Tuesday.
