Head Chef Robert Franklin focuses on simple comfort food in a well-thought-out menu inspired by European delights. A warm and cosy neighbourhood wine bar located right across the road from Ripponlea station, it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Exposed bricks, copper light fixtures and a range of seating options give the interior a rustic and homespun feel.
Using primarily local ingredients, these dishes are fresh and fabulous. Steak tartare features excellent quality meat, finely diced and mixed with cornichons and shallots. It is served beautifully in a log with dollops of a creamy Worcestershire emulsion and crunchy lavosh crackers. Almond- and quinoa-crusted squid boasts curly tentacles with a thin and flavoursome crust. Dip them into the accompanying pink whipped cod roe and add a squeeze of burnt lemon for a wonderful taste sensation.
PSST! For a hearty and healthy breakfast, try one of the superfood plates boasting ingredients such as kale, goji, asparagus, goat cheese, avocado and cranberry.
