Review : Chiswick

Lunch and Dinner
Tuesday-Sunday





Tonight finds us dining with The Hamiltons. We love dining with food loving, like minded folk, and The Hamiltons are one such couple.

The four of us have been looking forward to this dinner at Matt Moran's newbie Chiswick for a while now, and from the moment we step into Chiswick Gardens, we know we are not going to be disappointed.


The beautifully manicured lawns give way to a large, contemporary space which is already starting to fill quickly, when we arrive at 7pm

Review : Mad Cow - CLOSED

Level 1, Ivy 330 George Street
Sydney

02 9240 3000

Lunch Mon-Fri 12-3pm
Dinner Mon- Sat 6-10.30pm


Ever since visiting Mad Cow for the American Diner Degustation and really enjoying the quality of the food and flavours, we have been very keen on a return visit to sample their regular menu.

This Saturday evening finds us doing just that, heading to Mad Cow for what we are sure is going to be a night of great eating.

We arrive at 7pm just as the restaurant is starting to fill. We once again manage to score one of the roomy booths (love it when restaurants think about customer comfort over squeezing in as many people as possible), and immediately check out the cocktail list.

Review : Chimmichurri Bar and Grill - CLOSED

23 Ward Avenue
Darlinghurst


9331 1992
eat@chimmichurri.com.au


Dinner: Mon - Sun 6pm - Late
Lunch: Fri - Sun 12 - 2.30pm




After our very sugar laden lunch of the previous day, we have a real craving for meat…..and lots of it.
Having recently spied the menu at Chimmichurri Bar and Grill, we know it will more than fit the bill.


With the rain recently departed, we hop in the car and make our way to the Cross.
Unusually, we have no trouble finding a parking spot & make our way to Chimmichurri, which sits proudly at the ground level of Engelen Moore’s award winning building, Altair.



The restaurant is large with ample seating. The d├ęcor captures the ‘South American' vibe perfectly; with lots of timber & wrought iron, it is classic with modern touches.
The restaurant is headed by Jose Santos, former head chef at Wildfire.

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory - what an evocative title for an event! Straight away we are envisaging all sorts of 'Heston-esque' delights and surprises. We're expecting playful; we're expecting a 'world of imagination!'
