Was that true?
With large windows facing across Toorak Rd to Fawkner Park to the South and Hope St. to the West this large room with open kitchen, topped by a blackboard of specials and wines by the glass, a central bar and open fire with comfortable seating
We tasted a number of dishes beginning with duck liver in an excellent deglased sherry sauce
Moreton Bay bugs in a great verjuice sauce with tomato and lightly cooked beans and broccoli were totally delicious A creme brulee was rich smooth and creamy - just what it should be like
Service is attentive
Wines are an eclectic collection with plenty to choose from by the glass, and moderately priced We tried two shiraz's and to my surprise enjoyed the Heathcote one better than the Coonawarra!
Price: We ended up paying around $60/head
Comments: The serves are substantial and I strongly recommend it. The only thing that annoyed me was the tendancy for the cutlery to slip completely into the steep sided plate for the bugs giving me a handfull of sticky juices , but , as you can see, I wiped the plate clean!
So, in answer to the question was this true, I have to say they more than met my expectations
