Chef Damien Worthington, formerly of Capitol Bar and Grill in Canberra, has produced a well-rounded menu with some fresh takes on classic dishes. The restaurant has a garden setting just across from the NSW Art Gallery and down the road from the Botanic Gardens.
The menu provides a choice for most tastes including vegetarians and the gluten intolerant. The fresh lasagne with oven-roasted tomato, basil, kumara, pontiac potato, roasted peppers and mozzarella topped with a parmesan crisp and accompanied by a serving of tapenade is a substantial meal for those looking for a meat-free option. The smoked beetroot salad is a generous dish of fresh and colourful ingredients to delight both gluten- and meat-free diners. For meat lovers there’s a juicy grilled pork belly with a char siu glaze complemented with kale, red cabbage and radish salad and sesame and soy dressing.
PSST! The weekday lunch specials of one, two or three courses with a glass of wine are great value.
