REVIEW

Billie H's proximity to fashion precinct Claremont Quarter could be hazardous to your financial health. Then again, owner Dan Goodsell's mighty wine list at this smart-casual bar is packed with similar temptation, at least to those with a taste for bright, lively vino made by boutique  European and local vignerons. The kitchen keeps time via share-friendly plates that buzz with bold flavours. Devilled livers, while not especially spicy, are a study in creamy, boozy comfort. Mustard and lemon render raw, thickly sliced kingfish extra lush while a sauce of parmesan and anchovy turns char-grilled leeks into something special. Rich, heavy dishes dominate much of the menu: fight fat with the (relatively) lighter likes of sardine escabeche on a clever sprouted-grain "bread" and unfussy sweets like warm honey cake. While hip floor staff mightn't be as reliable as the cooking, Billie H remains essential dining - and drinking - in the Golden Triangle
