History

Niche on Bridge in Richmond is a family business. Owned and run by cousins Daniel and Michelle with her husband Jackson. Even the location has a family connection as their uncle was involved with the building of the whole building, apartments and all itself. Upon completion of the building on the corner of Bridge Road and Whites Place Richmond this trio observed that there was not anywhere on that part of Bridge Road to eat. Enter Niche on Bridge.

A restaurant on that part of Bridge Road may have been new but the family behind it is not. They are third generation restauranteurs. This family have over the years owned and run over 60 venues (move over Vanderpump Rules!) and not all of them restaurants either. In the 70s Daniel and Michelle's family owned three cafes and 3 menswear stores on Elizabeth Street in Melbourne. With this sort of service experience in their blood, after they feed you the greatest food you can imagine, they can let your pants out for you too!

Letting your pants out or just ditching them altogether may be exactly what you have to do once you discover Niche on Bridge in Richmond because 60-70% of our clientele are loyal and local customers who have found their niche with us, so return time and time again for the comfort our modern menu served with traditional levels of service gives.
