Bowery to Williamsburg

Bowery to Williamsburg, Melbourne

October 31, 2014

On previous trips to Melbourne we had noticed the Bowery to Williamsburg sign a few times on our way to one place or another and finally our curiosity got the better of us. Being a Friday morning it was the CBD office workers that were the majority in the cafe but it was still quite […]

The Oxford Tavern

The Oxford Tavern, Petersham

August 31, 2014

I can’t say the old Oxford Tavern is a place I ever visited. But the new digs is somewhere I’ve wanted to suss out for a while, especially since Jamie Thomas installed ‘Black Betty’ the smoker. A catch up with friends was the perfect excuse for a Sunday sesh. And what better way to spend […]

August 28, 2014

Following on from our weekend away in the Hunter Valley we had two weeks of holidays booked for a Sydney ‘staycation’ and one place we were quite keen to hit was Papi Chulo, partly because we were heading to Oxford Tavern for a taste of what ‘Black Betty’ has to offer a few days later […]

A Food Story does New York

A Food Story does New York

August 9, 2014

We didn’t go to New York with the intention of blogging (other than the Michelin starred restaurants that is). But when we thought about how much research we had done before we left and how many awesome places we discovered (most through recommendations) we decided we should write about them. And so… a year after […]

Hartsyard

Hartsyard, Newtown

June 15, 2014

Hartsyard is Gregory Llewellyn and Naomi Hart’s ‘urban homestead’. A restaurant with a focus on seasonal produce and nose-to-tail cooking with a focus on Southern American cuisine. Think fried chicken, biscuits (similar to British scones) and crazy desserts. It’s a little bit American and a little bit inner-west. Hartsyard is one of those places I’d […]

Mary’s, Newtown

Ever since going to New York I have had burger withdrawals. Shake Shack has left a gaping hole in my heart and I have been trying to fill it ever since. There have been many attempts to find a burger that is on the same level as the ShackBurger but alas I have been out […]

August 20, 2013

Our New York plans were coming along nicely. The bride and groom seemed rather relaxed and had everything under control, we had a HUGE bucket list of restaurants, bars and sites to visit and we had reservations at Le Bernardin and Eleven Madison Park. But that wasn’t quite enough. Dylan and I realised that although […]

Eleven Madison Park

Eleven Madison Park, New York, USA

August 15, 2013

Normally a story needs to be told from the beginning but on very rare occasions the ending of a good story must come first. And the story of our afternoon at Eleven Madison Park is one of these exceptions. This was the best dining experience of our lives. Ever. No really, ever! Saying it is […]

August 14, 2013

One of the meals we didn’t book for our NY trip was dinner at momofuku ssäm bar. Organised by the man responsible for our NY trip, the groom-to-be and one of my best friends who I have known since the age of four. Naturally the bo ssäm was ordered upon booking meaning when we arrived […]
