EmblaDark and dashing Embla is a wine bar with some serious culinary credibility. The decor at this saloon-like CBD spot is somewhat standard—exposed brick, dark wood, blackboards, and copper lights—but the extensive wine list is consciously more experimental, comprising obscure and unusual Australian vintages, plus cult international picks. Designed to pair with the wine, menu items change frequently to make the most of seasonal ingredients, but typically include refined options like rainbow trout with watercress and charred broccoli, and an elevated version of roast chicken.
