Cormac Bradfield and Phil Marchant continue to serve up inspired dishes that expand on the concept of café food. Although it looks casual, the food at Gauge is exciting and innovative. Gauge has a simple, modern fit-out, with timber floors, metal chairs and a large polished timber bar. The dining space includes two communal tables plus cosier seating.
Whether you are here for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you will be surprised by the clever menu choices. Spanner crab is succulent and salty, and is heightened with an eggy citrus sauce topped with curls of crispy shaved kohlrabi. A sprinkling of seaweed provides a complementary texture and a flavour highlight. Tender and slightly spicy, rocket spaghetti is tossed in a creamy egg and pine nut emulsion with a distinct toasted pine nut flavour. This colourful dish is obviously cooked with care and passion.
PSST! Keep an eye out for headline chefs, as Gauge is a popular spot with the culinary aristocracy!
