Nestled in the Art Deco building of Murwillumbah’s Art Precinct, Bistro Livi is a small-but-mighty neighbourhood restaurant that packs a punch when it comes to its culinary offering and personality. Helming the kitchen is Ewen Crawford, who has spent over a decade working at iconic Spanish dining and drinking destination MoVida, and Danni Wilson, who honed her skills at another Melbourne tried-and-true institution, Carlton Wine Room. The duo updates Bistro Livi’s menu weekly, ensuring the restaurant’s ethos stays the same – quality produce from the Northern Rivers, prepared in a simple yet sumptuous manner. Dishes that have been plated up include starters of anchovies served with fresh radishes, cured snapper, and plates of Jamon, followed by freshly caught blue swimmer crab with pepper, olive oil and lemon, grilled mackerel or sardines and charcoal-smoked steak and pork chops. You’ll also be able to devour the likes of fresh greens and barbecue zucchini, and for dessert, nutty cheeses, refreshing sorbet and fresh fruit. Nikky Wilson, also hailing from the MoVida stable, will oversee the front of house and the wine and drink list, which will spotlight local producers and makers.
