Lalla Rookh

Every city deserves a diner like Lalla Rookh. The CBD favourite is all things to all comers - full-service restaurant, relaxed lounge, intimate wine bar, light-filled atrium. The common thread is Joel Valvasori-Pereza's rustic cooking steeped in Friuli family recipes. The catholic menu embraces salumi, pasta and cheeses, pizze, seasonal specials and nonna's meatballs, paired with polenta and parmesan. Lalla's hospitality shines brightest in the $65 Il Capo menu, a six-stage feast showcasing what's best on the day. That might be summer figs cradled in lemon ricotta, squid-ink bigoli, or Baldivas rabbit two ways - first as braised livers dusted in semolina, and later stewed in tomato, white wine and fennel. The wine list harvests drops from star regions and makers, while beer drinkers have dozens of options on tap and under cap. Desserts are mod takes on the likes of panna cotta and semifreddo. Every meal ends sweetly with crisp, sugar-dusted crostoli.
