Since being rebranded Fix Wine Bar + Restaurant, the synergy between the moreish food of Chef Mark Archer and the thoughtfully matched, incredible boutique wines from sommelier/owner Stuart Knox has been taken to yet another level. Leading figures of the legal system intersperse with regular food and wine lovers, creating an egalitarian and eclectic vibe, which fits Fix’s philosophy.
The menu descriptions often modestly underplay the technique that Chef Archer brings to the plate. Incredibly fresh mackerel is grilled on the hibachi, with a lush and perfectly balanced glaze delivering a lovely smoky resonance to the fish. Pickled pumpkin and cucumber add just the right level of acidity to complete a flawless dish. A generous and more-ish portion of astutely roasted free-range pork neck with celeriac, cauliflower and boudin noir is all about showcasing the flavour and texture of the produce, elevated by bold and precise seasoning that sets a benchmark for others.
