Affinity Restaurant

Paddington

AFFINITY RESTAURANT IN PADDINGTON HAS CLOSED IN 2015.

Affinity is a slick little restaurant and bar that serves up an eclectic menu of Mod Oz cuisine with old-fashioned touches from its airy indoor-outdoor digs in Paddington.

Occupying the spot that once house Simpatico, Affinity brings a fresh casual approach to dining, and makes a great spot to pop in for anything from a weekend breakfast to  lunch, dinner or simply an evening cocktail or glass of wine.

Otherwise there’s Stuffed French Toast (filled with marmalade and cream), Breakfast Bruschetta, Egg White Omelette, Toasted Fruit Loaf and an Affinity Tasting Plate with the works.

And in a charming blast from the past, the cheese trolley (think First Class airline circa 1980s) has been resurrected for afters. Wheeled out on a vintage trolley are a selection of 5 classic cheeses (Gippsland Brie, Meredith Chevre, Swiss Emanthal, Gorgonzola dolce and Spanish Iberico), crackers, grissini, raisins, port and liqueurs. Diners get to choose from 3 to 5 cheeses which are then plated with the accompaniments and served with a glass of port or liqueur of choice.
