This expansive restaurant is located in the heart of North Sydney, it’s name fitting with it’s location in the lobby of the Northpoint tower. Find your way through ‘Eat Street’ of the tower and you can find the entrance to the restaurant with a cariacature of a Lobby Boy on the front door.
The restaurant is perfect for any event, whether it be a cocktail or two, dinner with that special someone, client meeting or work team lunch. The venue is stylish, with dim lighting, dark interiors 18th century art, champagne buckets, velveteen furniture, brass fittings and a range of spaces to sit including long tables, banquettes, or lounge space. The ambience is calm and staff are friendly and welcoming.
Having been operating as a breakfast and lunch venue in both North Sydney and Everleigh, the North Sydney location has just opened on Thursday and Friday nights for dinner. The dinner can be described as Modern Australian and can be ordered as ala carte with options from the entrée, main and dessert menu, or a 4-course menu, with a glass of wine for $79, which is extremely reasonable for the size and quality.
Their carefully curated cocktail and wine menu suits the food on offer. Both our red wines ordered were excellent and were well matched to the meals we ordered, especially the Tumbalong Hills Track Shiraz, and the Novum Pinot Noir.
Food wise, the grilled king prawns were of a good size and cooked nicely, served atop a red bell pepper puree, with a bell pepper crisp and herb oil. This was a good serving for the price of $27. We continued with the seafood, selecting a beautiful tuna crudo, and we were impressed with the perfectly sliced pieces of bluefin tuna loin, flavoured with yuzu dressing, horseradish, mascarpone, pickled shallots, black berries and some crispy capers. A refreshing and well curated menu item. Complimentary focaccia was also given to all diners on the evening.
Menu items for the mains showcase sophisticated choices from duck breast to squid ink spaghetti with crab and plenty of protein choices (and a vegetarian option). Our selections included the Ranger Valley Valley Wagyu Rump steak (6-8M), served medium rare as requested, with a creamy parsnip puree, butter glazed carrots, parsnip crisps and a lovely homemade beef jus.
The market fish on the day of visit was a barramundi, which came with a crispy skin and served with charred broccolini, another creamy chickpea puree, caper relish and burnt butter emulsion. We were impressed at the amazing flavour of the relish and how well it paired with the puree and fish.
The dinner menu is certainly a good addition to the restaurant, and for the price, it is incredibly good value for money, given the quality on offer.
We hope you get a chance to visit for yourselves.
