REVIEW

Chef Quentin Whittle cleverly rethinks suburban bistro style by borrowing boldly from many cultures and producing a variety of share plates with generosity and flair. Salmon sashimi with tahini yoghurt sets the mood - its strong salt levels met with a robust mix of chilli, sumac, candied walnuts, chopped herbs and salmon roe. A red curry of confit duck legs comes as a huge salad, melding coconut in a northern Thai sauce with Sichuan pepper, mandarin rind, whole roasted green tomatoes and big handfuls of fresh herbs. Another generous salad sets roasted red and golden beetroot wedges on smoked celeriac purée with orange-spiked labne, roasted almonds, pumpkin seeds and candied pear. The generous $65 tasting menu is an ideal way to experience the highlights. The venue's dual function as a wine bar means there's an exciting list stacked with crisp Mediterranean varieties and on-trend producers, supported by breezy, informed service.
