Firstly, go directly to the eight-course degustation menu (often with an extra course thrown in for good measure), and organize yourself a side helping of the triple-fried fries.
Secondly, loose fitting clothes are optional but strongly recommended.
Thirdly, do not try this at home. If the every-day food enthusiast attempted to serve up grilled Blackmore’s tongue with sour beetroot, malt ice cream (yes, you read it right) and grilled white onions, it might not go down so well. Tomislav is one of Sydney’s most experimental chefs and his creations are best left on the (often wildly oversized) plates of his restaurant.
He doesn’t just blend sweet with savory and fine granita with hot dishes; he manages to offer his guests five-star food without the pretentiousness that often ruins the great meals on offer at other Sydney eateries. Here, the atmosphere is relaxed, the service is impeccable, and the food speaks for itself.
Oh, and it’s right on the trendy cusp of Darlinghurst and Kings Cross meaning that wherever your night leads post-dinner—from classy cocktails to first-class debauchery—you won’t have to travel too far.
