In one ear, a pair discusses the perks of pre-emptive Botox. In the other, it's this year's tomato crop. Chiswick, part of Matt Moran's stable of restaurants, is mostly down to earth, with attentive service, large dishes made for sharing, plenty of natural light and a horticulturist tending to its vast vegetable garden. Concurrently, it's all glossy blow-waves and air-kisses. There's a seasonal, vegetable-rich focus to the menu: charred eggplant paired with crunchy radish, or sweet heirloom tomatoes dressed with herbs you can see growing outside the window. Locally sourced meat is also a feature; wood-roasted lamb hails from the Moran family farm itself. A Macleay Valley pork chop comes roasted with a crisp ribbon of crackling, while desserts may make wonderful use of late-summer stone fruit, as in peaches with elderflower and almond. Cocktails are likewise garden-infused, while wines are helpfully categorised from bright to spicy.
