Although it seems that to be a slave to fashion is considered a bad thing, I find it pleasurable to stumble in somewhere and feel that you are in the midst of something buzzy and popular and… now. Located next to a few fancy furniture shops (Great Dane has beautiful stuff in it) and with no visible competition anywhere in sight, you head down into a rather vast basement space alive with activity, and with a casual thrown-together feel that could even be a pop-up bar or restaurant.
So, liked the space, liked the vibe. The food was fine; neither of us thought our dishes were outstanding but perhaps we chose the wrong things. My crab omelette was tasty and nicely presented. A solidly good dish. My pal’s take on an apple crumble was interesting with a lot of different elements, but he found that it looked more interesting than it tasted and the yoghurt base was a little monotonous by the end. Pretty as a picture though.
Still, well worth a visit I’d say, and you could go for a stroll on ever-changing Redfern Street afterwards.
