Sean's Kitchen

White-tiled walls, timber furniture, shiny brass and a menu of classics deliver a textbook brasserie in one of Adelaide's most beautiful old sandstone buildings. High vaulted ceilings stretch from the busy bar to a wall of fridges displaying Spanish, Italian and local hams, while seating runs from the long kitchen bench to intimate booths and tables on the pavement with a view of Parliament. Local produce shines in an excellent prawn cocktail and a fine range of oysters, while poached Saskia Beer chicken features in a modern take on the Waldorf salad enlivened with smoked almonds. This being a casino, there's splash-out stuff for the caviar-and-Krug crowd; for our buck the likes of saddle-cut lamb chops hot from the grill are a better bet, even if the garnishes are a bit weak. Staff know the cast of cocktails better than the long wine list, but are personable regardless. Whether it's a pre-show bite, big spenders' night out or a lingering lunch, Sean's has much to please.
