Visitors to Portside Wharf have something to look forward to as FOSH, a new upmarket seafood restaurant from the owners of Opa Bar + Mezze, prepares to open soon.

Restaurateur Michael Tassis is currently overseeing the completion of the $3-million venue’s fit-out, inspired by the poshness of the Hamptons on Long Island, New York. 

Fosh, scheduled to open in March 2023, will not be your typical fish and chips joint, but it will still offer some casual and relaxed dining options. The seafood restaurant, covering 700 square meters of space at Portside Wharf, has been designed with opulence in mind.

Mr Tassis said that there will be a glamorous island bar, a fireplace, and a flowing indoor/outdoor dining area with gorgeous views of the Brisbane River.

“Fosh’s focus will be on serving fresh, high-quality and sustainable seafood that is on our guests’ plates within 24 hours of being caught, including fish, lobster, mud crabs, oysters and more,” Mr Tassis said.

“We hope this exceptional dining experience will spark – or reignite – people’s love for the cuisine and I can’t think of a better location to do so than directly by the water.”

Fosh will join Byblos, Gusto Da Gianni and Sono Japanese Restaurant in revitalising the dining precint, which will be undergoing a major renovation as well. The restaurant is Mr Tassis’ seventh. 

“When I was given the chance to secure a restaurant space with prime river frontage, it was an opportunity too good to pass up, and I now look forward to being part of the precinct’s exciting new future and evolution,” FOSH’s owner said.
