Venue for a fancy dinner

By pamplemous 10 June 2008 47

I’m looking for a recommendation for a good venue for an anniversary. Preferably in the Civic/inner north/inner south area. We went to Courgette last year for a degustation, and it’s set the bar pretty high! We loved the food, wine and ambiance of the place. I was thinking Artespresso in Kingston, which has a degustation menu, but don’t know anyone who’s been there. I also know of Aubergine in Griffith, but am not sure it’s got the same ambiance as it’s sister-restaurant.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

What’s Your opinion?

Some good recommendations above (Rubicon, Mezalira and Anise in particular are favs) but also worth a try is On Red at the top of Red Hill – sure, the bulding looks like a 1970’s UFO (I know, wtf?) but it has a great view and the food is spot on, fresh, interesting and well priced. A decent wine and beer list list, and they BYO wine for reasonable corkage – not sure about cakage… I beleive the chef is formally of grazing in Gundaroo. I rated it highly (had the duck, wifey had the fish). And no, I’m not affiliated with the place at all.

I’ve been to Pulp Kitchen a few times, and it is very agreeable. But the setting is not up there as a “venue for a fancy dinner”, more akin to a pleasant evening with friends/family where you just want a good feed (very good, in fact) in a relaxed environment.

I have heard from a friend that the food at Pulp Kitchen in Ainslie is fantastic.

Thanks Jazz – just drop everything and sort it OK? What could possibly be more important?
Anyway can’t find it that way either so I’ll just rant here:

Q: How do you make a single coffee last an entire hour-long meeting and still be warm at the last sip?
A: Go to Cafe Momo – you’ll only get served just before leaving anyway… (real life experience yesterday)

Its not that i dont beleive you Skidbladnir, i just dont have the resources available to fix it at the moment. As much as i’d like to click my fingers and make Riot all things to all people its just not possible. I’m more than happy to hear from volunteers.

Gungahlin Al, if the article was on cafe momo you can browse to find it in the lifestyle category.
