Everyone knows the Greenwood from their Thirsty Thursday Nights. But due to a recent upgrade and revamp, those messy nights are a thing of the past.
Undergoing a complete transformation The Greenwood Hotel is brighter and more spacious, giving this glorious piece of Sydney architecture the character, charm and atmosphere it rightfully deserves.
Assorted Share Board
A nice little taste temptation showcasing the mouth watering starters The Greenswood’s new menu has to offer. There were House Marinated Olives & Grissini, Field Mushroom & Pinenut Arancini, Barramundi & Chorizo Skewers and finally some Fresh Sydney Rock Oysters.
Chargrilled Salmon with Fennel, Orange, Green Olive & Baby Kale & Kipfler Potatoes
Straight into the beautiful looking mains, this salmon dish looks like it came out of a 3 hatted kitchen with flavour to boot. The salmon was soft and pleasantly flaky, allowing the adorning crispy quinoa to add a delicate crunch to every bite. The potato and kale salad was a perfect accompaniment absorbing the aromatic flavours of the fennel and orange.
Lamb Shank Pie with Mustard Mash, Crushed Peas & Gravy
Harry de Wheels eat your heart out. This wholesome dish managed to look and taste both comforting and refined at the same time. The soft lamb meat swam in a gloriously rich gravy surrounded by a wall of flaky golden pastry. Circled by a fluffy moat of creamy mash and adorned with sweet crushed peas, the dish is finished off with a crispy rasher of bacon for that extra hit of flavour.
Honey Labna, Glazed Fig, Sesame, Pomegranate, Lemon Balm
A nice dessert, full of interesting flavours. I loved the glazed figs, which gave the dish a sweet caramelised flavour. The labna ball was soft and creamy but could have had a little more of that classic goats cheese sourness to it, however the lemon balm on the bottom of the dish more than made up for that (perhaps a little too much) with its sharp tartness.
Chocolate Fudge Bar, Mandarin Curd, Candied Almonds, Vanilla Cream
I do love a good brownie. Served warm, the velvety chocolate sauce drizzled over the top was dark and rich matching the exquisite brownie underneath. Served with a dollop of mandarin curd to cut the richness and a scattering of candied almonds for a little extra crunch.
We really loved the The Greenwood Hotel’s new makeover, taking it up a couple of notches in the North Sydney night life scene. Great look, great atmosphere and most importantly, great food.
