Brigitte Hafner and James Broadway's lovely enoteca in the emerging Gertrude Street food precinct. The wine selection is excellent including some wonderful wines from the south of France. The food is inspired and the coffee excellent.
On our most recent visit we thoroughly enjoyed a soulful mushroom and barley soup along with an excellent vitello tonnato served in the classic manner. We also tried a chicken and proscuitto panino.
We accompanied our lunch with one of the brilliant 'new' wines that are popping up all over France at present. This was a syrah from Herve Souhart who maintains an organic vineyard in the Ardeche. The wine was fresh and lively, the fruit flavours benefitted from the non-interventionist winemaking techniques he adopts and the alcohol level is a very pleasant 12.5%
