Matt Moran’s Woolahra restaurant has a second venture in the Art Gallery of NSW. It is a stunning spot in the top level corner of the gallery with a view of the water. It is light and bright and a casual fine dining spot.
From their garden they use plentiful vegetables, fruits and salads to produce healthy, fresh and vibrant dishes. A range of entrees, small plates and larger sharing plates.
Start with some oysters or bread and a cocktail to get the good vibes happening.
The sweet potato scallops were lovely too – crisp outer casing filled with sweet potato.
There’s a seasonally changing menu with individual meals including snapper, pork chops, scotch fillet, beer battered fish and chips, and shared dishes of trout or lamb shoulder from the Moran family farm, served with carrot, lentil and mint.
We then ordered a few mains and in particular loved the beautiful Barra-in-a-bag with saffron, fennel, sea vegetable (It is df and gf). They’ve also got a fab beef tartare.
You will need some sides, we opted for the Chiswick Green Salad and Green Beans, but you may prefer toast mushrooms or fries.
Fruit inspired desserts, cheese platters and and array of stunning wines and cocktails, you will find this to be a sophisticated dining venue.
Make a day of it and visit the Gallery and book yourself in for lunch at Chiswick whilst you’re there.
