Tapping into good food
First day of opening and the upstairs dining room was packed. Pretty cool decor and love the use of Australian floral arrangements on the tables. ETR Negroni ($18) is available on tap made up of Four Pillars rare dry gin, red Okar Bitter, Regal Rough Bold red vermouth, fresh orange. Very nice flavour, easy to drink and I appreciate how they didn't need to use Campari. Pacific oysters, parsley, verjuice & eschallot ($4) are coffin bay pacifics with a lovely flavour combo and a new Simon Favourite. Brisket Sandwich with pepper jack, fennel slaw & pickles ($18) add fries ($4) is a well composed sandwich with layers of tastiness. Buttered and toasted sourdough from Sonoma for extra guilty pleasure flavour. Tender and smoky meat. Melty cheese. Chips are crispy, tasty and well seasoned become worthy of a side. Service was helpful and friendly. The toilets upstairs are unisex with two cubicles each for guys and the ladies — I wonder if the fireplace still works in there. Plenty of seating outside to take advantage on a nice day. From first impressions this place seems to be a great addition to the dining scene in The Rocks.
