The word's in people, the Vine Double Bay has recently opened its doors and business is pumping, and for good reason too! Sydney's gorgeous harbour side suburb, Double Bay, has just added another beaut to its growing list of trendy dining and wining locations which, of course ,makes us at The Urban List jump for joy. The Short Street restaurant offers a relaxed, yet contemporary atmosphere with a modern, open floor plan and swathes of natural lighting make it perfect for afternoon drinks, dinner with friends or a long lunch. The team at Vine Double Bay have put together a stylishly sophisticated menu matched with a perfectly complimenting wine list and cocktails to die for.
We're excited to see what delicious dishes are concocted by head Chef Drew Bolton whose experience extends to French Laundry in the Napa Valley, Darley's at Lilianfells in the Blue Mountains and Peter Gilmore's iconic Quay. Meals range from small plates such as smoked pork jowl with crackling, parsnip, tangelo and cumquat to the substantial plates like rankin cod with Port Lincoln banana prawn, black garlic, asparagus and galangal scented mantis shrimp bouillon. Ideal for sharing between 2-4 people, you'll find mouth-watering dishes such as the Dutton Park glazed whole duck with lavender and star anise and the braised wild hare pithivier with buttered kale and truffled potato puree.
All of these deliciously wicked plates are topped off with a perfectly paired wine list featuring 50 wines from lesser-known, standout boutique wineries with an emphasis on organic and biodynamic styles. Following the vine theme, cocktail concoctions are inspired by vine-grown fruits and vegetables, which is perfect for summer's fast approach! With such a vast array of goodies to nibble on, indulge in and slurp down, Vine Double Bay is a perfect venue to while away a balmy evening in the eastern suburbs.
