Rock Oysters and more

Complementing the aperitivo hour, the new bar menu offers a selection of small plates that echo Jamie Robertson’s philosophy of showcasing produce in a simple, elegant manner. Menu highlights include Sydney Rock Oysters with finger lime and rice vinegar, roasted artichokes with parmesan custard, fried whitebait with Sichuan salt, prawn katsu sandwich, and a cured meats platter featuring Wagyu bresaola, saucisson, and LP’s mortadella. Additionally, a selection of Australian cheeses will be available.

For those with a penchant for mixology, the menu features signature cocktails such as the Sydney Common Negroni (Poor Toms gin, Campari, lemon-infused vermouth), Red Carpet (Bombay Sapphire gin, St Germain, and Pinot Noir), and Sunset Stride (pineapple-infused Olmeca Blanco tequila, red wine syrup, and lemon). There’s also a good selection of non-alcoholic options such as the Amalfi Spritz (Lyre’s Italian Spritz, Lyre’s Classico Grande, and StrangeLove soda) and The Botanist (Seedlip Garden, cucumber and basil syrup, cucumber, mint, and lime).
