O.My: Restaurant review

Since grabbing attention in 2013 with their low-waste farm-to-table concept, O.My has only gone bigger and better.

REVIEW

It's the little restaurant that could. The Bertoncello brothers – Blayne in the kitchen, Chayse running the floor and the wine – first grabbed attention in 2013 when their low-waste farm-to-table concept ran head-on into the zeitgeist. Since then, they've gone bigger and better. Their own nearby farm provides all the fruit and vegetables, what's not used fresh is preserved and used in other inventive ways. Expect the dégustation menu to feature a stunning one-veg wonder: an ethereal celebration of Jerusalem artichoke that sees the tuber roasted, puréed, fried and pickled, a rich egg yolk dip the only interloper. In keeping with the ethos, protein plays a lesser role but makes every appearance count, such as a charry skewer of calamari and marinated zucchini basted in onion jus. A fire gutted the restaurant in 2020 but the doughty Bertoncellos have kept on keeping on, and made us love O.My even more.
