17 Apr Top Cuvée
At last, Blackstock Road has its very own top local spot! The word has clearly spread: past the nameless window, Brodie Meah (dinner by Heston in Melbourne), Max and Noel Venning (Three Sheets) and Rob Roy Cameron (El Bulli, Tickets, Hojo Santa)’s home is all bubbling, no-fuss fun between the warm tangerine walls and exposed bricks with bright illustrations.
The menu wins us over with the homemade ham and gribiche the “best soda bread out of Ireland” says the Irish bread expert who knows a thing or two. Keep going with a lively English beans salad with pine nut dressing; a braised pork belly with coco beans and pickled girolles, and the now cult rétro-gourmet crème caramel… Brighten up the parade with natural sips and loud, friendly chatter. Filling a neighbourhood food gap, this little bistrot 2.0. is just the way we like it.
