The owners have applied their considerable style chutzpah to this space, and with a mix of raw wood, polished concrete, suspended wicker egg chairs and hanging herb pots and plants, created the kind of city home you want to hang out in.
And the food, which comes tapas style in small or large share plates (that are seasonal and change regularly) is more than a match for the décor. Must-try is their 'signature' Kentucky Fried Duck, which comes finger lickin' good in a paper bag, and look out for dishes like Hawaiian Potato Curry or Pork Belly, Kimchi and Crackling.
Three small plates are more than enough for one person and sweet tooths should save room for desserts such as the cherry and pistachio clafoutis with praline ice-cream.
Over at the bar cocktails are the star – try the Public Nuisance – and the wine list is well-priced for its quality. In fact those who like to enjoy a drink with ambience and without a heaving crowd should head here as an antidote to the packed drinking barns that the CBD specializes in.
