Culinary director Jason Atherton entrusted Chef Robert Daniels with stewardship of his first Australian restaurant. With experience under Gordon Ramsay, and locally with Peter Doyle, Ryan Squires and Colin Fassnidge, Daniels is the perfect fit. The impressive multi-level dining space showcases an expansive open kitchen and bar, giving it an unmistakable vibe when service is at, or fast approaching, its peak.
In sync with the internationally established modern British–Mediterranean style philosophy of The Social Company, the construct of the food is sharp, yet uncomplicated. The tongue ‘n’ cheek croquettes are separated by an array of well-considered garnish, with the exceptional piccalilli connecting all the dots. For main course, a generous portion of flavoursome lamb rump, served with garden peas and silky white onion soubise, resonates with smoky tones of bacon, delivering comfort food on another level.
