Propeller is an inviting proposition. First, there's the spirited design, which fuses a reformed shipping container, a converted garage and a glassed-in courtyard into an engaging whole. Second, the waitstaff are approachable and knowledgeable in equal measure. Third, Kurt Sampson's dexterous cooking, an amalgam of Levantine, Mediterranean and Moorish influences, surpasses expectations for an all-day dining spot. Vegetarian standouts include eggplant fritters, exquisitely crunchy on the outside and tender within; a rich Tunisian capsicum stew that's heightened with kefalograviera cheese; and zucchini-laced frittata with labne and dill. In terms of heartier fare, makanek, Lebanese lamb and beef sausages, served on beetroot with chunks of pickled turnip, and crisp pizze like the meat manoushe are both perpetually popular. Meanwhile, the well-designed drinks list, with local and European wines and Mediterranean cocktails, is Propeller-sharp.
