To fortify ourselves for the week ahead we're treating ourselves to a late lunch far from the maddening crowd.
We've chosen dishes today from both menus today - two are from the Special Lunch menu which varies weekly (it's a 2 courses for $24.50 offer) and the other are Specials of the day from the a la Carte menu.
silverbait with aioli (from Special Lunch menu)
truffled poached egg, asparagus, zucchini ribbons and peas
the asparagus were sliced on the diagonal and still retained a good crunch, mimicking the role of toast fingers - a delicious decadence.
crusted veal, peas, king oyster mushrooms, cauliflower puree, asparagus spears
beautifully cooked and tender rib of veal, silky smooth cauliflower puree - tastes even better than it looks.
As a side dish we choose this:
panzanella salad (from the special lunch menu)
