They say good things come in threes:
Harry, Ron and Hermione.
The Hemsworth Brothers…
And Macleay St Bistro has you sorted for entrée, dinner and dessert.
New owners and a new Head Chef have swooped into the Potts Point eatery and given it a fresh new look (and menu to boot). A soft refurb has added a relaxed atmosphere to the French Bistro classic. “We welcome locals to pop in for oysters and champagne or just a mouth-watering dessert,” co-owner Phillip Fikkers said.
Sure, you could just swing by for a White Chocolate Cheesecake with Strawberry Coulis at the end of the night, but why hit just one when you could go for the trifecta? Head Chef Tom Williams (Bambini Trust, Forbes on Burton, Tetsuya’s) has you in safe hands.
Start your night off with Chilled Watercress Soup with Poached Quail Egg. The light flavours will tingle your tastebuds and get you ready for the main event. We highly recommend you try the Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi with Sage Buerre Noisette; don’t let the big words put you off, that’s simply food talk for unbelievable sauce.
Even after you’re groaning with delight after having finished every spec on your plate, it still won’t be enough. Sit back, enjoy the décor… there’s that beautiful red chandelier by the door, or perhaps that garçon caught your eye? Put off leaving and order dessert. You’re here for the long run, after all. The Hazelnut Mille Feuille with Coffee Anglais is the perfect indulgence to finish.
This new ownership has created the ultimate Parisian Potts Point place to be – and everyone wants to be there. If you want a seat you might want to make a booking, otherwise you may sadly miss the boat.
Whatever item on the menu catches your eye, there will be no order regrets. Just to be on the safe side, though, you better have a taste of your dining companion’s dishes.
Perhaps you and The Hemsworth Brothers could spoon feed each other?
