Bistro St Jacques
The little red bistro on Pitt Street in Redfern has been serving its loyal clientele for the past nine years a beautiful selection of unpretentious, honest delicacies.
It’s another entry in the “timeless” French bistro experience for Sydney with lighter finishes to the traditional classic French techniques. Their Southern French-inspired menu means less butter and cream and more olive oil, seafood, and fresh vegetables.
It’s all about creating “food that people go back to time and time again,” owner Gary Prebble tells us. The seared scallops with mushroom duxelle and gruyere cheese have been a firm favourite since the beginning and they offer a good selection of natural, low-intervention, and organic wines too.
French cuisine is famously unfriendly to herbivores however Bistro St Jacques also offers a vegan degustation.
