A Brumbies Front Row Union restaurant review. Dedicated to me! Dieci E Mezzo

By johnboy - 8 February 2012 14

Back in mid January the Brumbies made their first foray into restaurant reviews by their front row* and were, it seems, not thrilled by my assessment of that effort (although it should be noted that if we hadn’t given it a push few would have seen it).

This week they’re off to Dieci E Mezzo, part owned by former Brumbies front rower Jeremy Paul who makes a cameo.

I was particularly touched by the dedication to me at the start of the review, and am heartened by the news they’re straight back into training. If any of them would like to come along to our weekly rugby podcast recordings through the season they’re more than welcome (heck backs, locks, number 8s, we’re not picky).

There probably is a space in the restaurant review market for large men untroubled by price, and these reviews are for you!

*For non rugby conversant readers the front row of a rugby team are the wide shouldered gentlemen, normally not too tall (low centre of gravity is important to their work) who pack in at the front of the scrum and generally determine which side is the more masculine. If they get bossed it’s very, very hard for their side to win.

I guess they’ll be reviewing the offerings and ambience at the UC refectory cafe next? I’m guessing 9/10, or so…. Hahahaha! 🙂

I reckon from your photies that with a bit of training you’d resemble these guys more than, you know, the grungy northside types!

I do appreciate the description of the front row. As a former loosehead prop, I used to get stares at the initial scrum when playing for a particular team, being 6″5′. Until they saw our tighthead was 6″4′ and our hooker was a touch under 6″.

I was going to make the same remark, a former loosehead myself, dead on 6′. Indeed most props I played against were on the taller side, they’re just built like wine barrels when compared to the 2nd row.

And as for the lack of vegetarian options, the green stuff is the playing surface, not the meal.

Did they miss dessert? By far the best part of dining at 10 and 1/2 🙂

the peril of pointing out an error is that it might be corrected.

Or as Napoleon said:

“Never interrupt your enemy when he’s in the middle of making a mistake”

‘… part owned by formed Brumbies front rower Jeremy Paul who makes a cameo.’

Yes, I’d agree that that he’s formed…
(and please don’t correct that in your post so this makes no sense whatsoever).

But they’re still not doing enough on vegetarian options. Perhaps you could raise that, JB, in your new role of muse/mascot.
