SK Steak & Oyster: Restaurant review

Surf, turf and a touch of glamour.


Prefer your chargrilled rib served with a side of glamour? Despite its surf and turf allusions, SK is about more than seafood and steak. Although, this glorious venue, all lofty ceilings, epic concrete pillars and pale horseshoe-shaped booths, offers some of Australia's finest examples of both. White jacketed waitstaff are vigilant, monitoring pace discreetly, suggesting sides from the menu's nine-strong potato section – perhaps wagyu fat kipflers – or a salad gussied up with eggs mollet and briny chunks of Moreton Bay bug. One of two sommeliers advise on pairings from a mammoth list, discuss obscure Spanish offerings and grower Champagne, or anything you please. Frock up and relish the meticulous care evident in everything from the Champagne mignonette for Duck Bay bivalves, to the balance achieved by a yellowtail kingfish crudo with jalapeño and white soy. You'll need two to do the signature strawberry cake justice, perhaps an elegant yuzu parfait to finish instead?
