Adrian Richardson's Story

Adrian Richardson's restaurant La Luna is a successful and bustling place in North Carlton, serving up clean, fresh and innovative food.

From the age of 14 this passionate young Chef began working in cafes and bistros. After completing year 12, his boss at the café he was working at, offered him an Apprenticeship and the rest, as they say, is history. Richardson spent time training at the Victoria Arts Centre, Le Restaurant at The Regent Hotel, O’Connell’s Hotel with Greg Malouf, in the UK with Antony Worrall-Thompson and in Canada. But it was under the watchful eye of Michael Bacash at Toofey’s where he rounded off his experience and set upon his current course to open his own place.

Adrian has a simple philosophy with his food, which he calls “modern Mediterranean”, and that is to use the freshest ingredients and keep it simple. His rule for all his fish on the menu is fresh fish or no fish! He is so passionate about his food; he ripens his own avocados and tomatoes, makes his own pasta daily, ages his beef on the bone and uses mushrooms that have only been picked hours before arriving at his restaurant.

Adrian has appeared on Channel Ten’s new hit TV series 'Ready Steady Cook', Channel Nine’s ‘Boat Show’ and 'Car Show', ‘Fresh’ and ‘Switching Lives’, and Channel Ten’s 'Good Morning Australia'. Adrian has been a regular guest on talkback radio, and is in constant demand as a Guest Chef. La Luna continues to thrive and is considered one of Melbourne’s best Mediterranean Bistros, and with various projects in progress, there is never a dull moment.
