Set in an old timber house, this is the sort of suburban eatery every neighbourhood needs. The warm and genuine staff ensure diners feel welcome and at ease, and although the décor could do with a refresh, it's a comfortable package. A strong lure for locals, it's also sufficiently intriguing to induce food lovers to trek across town. An international-leaning, produce-led menu is elevated by a kitchen armed with classical smarts. For an entrée, citrus-cured salmon arrives paired with a crisp wafer of toast, dill-infused crème fraîche and a fruity sorbet that brings brightness and sweetness. A main course of lamb belly and loin, matched with roasted baby carrots, carrot purée, dukkah and smoked chèvre, also delights. Honey-coated oat and poppy-seed shards add texture to an artful dessert featuring aerated lemon curd and chamomile jelly. With a wine from an eclectic list in hand, many would happily call this place their local.
