From Neil Gottheiner, Kurt Mengetti and the team behind Bondi’s much loved Brown Sugar, Lox Stock and Barrel is a beachside slice of New York that serves up bagels and deli goods from its busy backstreet restaurant. This is neighbourhood dining at its best, with patrons elbow to elbow, swing music animating their conversations and charming young staff working their way around the tables.
The menu opens with the main act of house-made cured seafood and meats, and they are suitably outstanding. Affordable entrees like a tangy sprouted mix grain falafel with red dahl and coconut sambal are perfect for sharing. Larger dishes are hearty and wholesome, with daily specials on offer, like a Middle Eastern-spiced slow-cooked lamb shoulder with creamy polenta and organic vegetables. Round out the night with something from the small but creative dessert list.
PSST! Why not book a few tables for a group of friends and select from one of their excellent group dinner menus.
