Hobart's must-visit bar, Lucinda, is open 7 days a week. It is a welcoming place where you will sit shoulder to shoulder with locals and international visitors who are seeking the comforting food and interesting wines that are a hallmark of this exciting venue.
We are entranced by the radishes (sourced from our friend Tony at Rocky Tops Farm) served with an absolutely delicious fried egg sauce.
We also love the play on textures demonstrated in the squid and potato dish where both are entwined in noodle shapes. This dish gives a nod to the northern China dish of noodles made from long potato strips that we have enjoyed on a number of occasions in Shanghai.
Owner and chef Kobi, is involved in designing the dishes but he is supported by two very experienced chefs, Peter Cooksley who mans the stoves most of the time and Jess Muir who worked for a long time for Christine Manfield.
Another moorish dish is made from Tony's turnips bathed in a nori cream and topped with ultra-thin flakes of katsuobushi.
The music here is also very interesting while not being overwhelming. Think "Simple Song" by The Shins or "Hold On" by Alabama Shakes.
The wine list is exemplary with a panoply of the best from the natural wine world. You will find Australian producers such as Momento Mori (we tried their lovely Nosiola recently), Jauma with their 1000 Fires or the Manon Geoponica which is a delightful blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin. From Europe you will find Gut Oggau, Thomas Pico, Le Temps des Cerises, Domaine Mosse, Jean-Pierre Robinot, Domaine du Possible from Bandol or you could go for broke with a magnum of the Domaine Mosse Magic of Ju-Ju or the Cantina Giardino Gaia.
The staff know their wines well and are very happy to make a recommendation if you are unfamiliar with the wine list.
