Leonards Bar & Bistro
Inspired by the chic, modern bistros you’ll find in bustling international cities like New York and Paris, Leonard’s is relaxed enough to hit up for a mid-week lunch but equally as perfect for a date. Inside you’ll find an old-world burgundy and gold vibe, with plenty of exposed brick walls, New York subway-looking tiling, hanging globe lights and peachy pink bench seating paired with bentwood chairs and a smattering of greenery.
Fittingly, on the menu you’ll find classic bistro dishes inspired by Spain, Italy, France and Greece. Think fresh oysters, steak tartare with potato crisps, country style pork terrine, char grilled skirt steak and hand cut fries and rack of lamb with a herb and pistachio crumb—and be sure to save room for the olive oil cake with lemon curd and meringues. For those just looking for a light lunch or afternoon snack, there’s also fancy sandwiches, cheese and charcuterie boards and a selection of sweet and savoury pastries.
As for what you'll be drinking, we love the 'Shorties'—minature bottled versions of their signature cocktails which mean you can try more of them.
