After working in Auckland, Sydney, Gold Coast, London, Hong Kong and Dubai, Executive Chef Regan Porteous draws on a range of influences when creating his dishes. You can experience these influences when you dine at Riley Street Garage, a 1930s-style building that once held a car-hire business. The decor is quirky with an industrial look, exposed brick walls, dim lights and a massive retro bar in the middle of the floor.
The menu is designed to be shared. A few raw items, including sashimi, fish and chips tartare and beef carpaccio come in entree size and are a light way to start your adventure. From the small plates selection, try the spring vegetable tempura, which comes with piccalilli that adds a wow factor. The large dishes include a vegetarian option represented by the green pea risotto with truffle oil, and the dry-aged rib eye with bearnaise is to die for.
PSST! The stunning dessert platters are worth leaving some room for.
