Weekend sessions are nothing new and as the weather warms up in Sydney, Bellevue will be waiting as the crowds begin to flock to get that prime seat on their light filled open-air terrace called the Bellevue Terrace.
Bellevue is comprised of a number of drinking and dining areas with each space thoughtfully designed to cater for a particular audience. On a fine Saturday afternoon, we were fortunate enough to be perched on a table upstairs on the terrace as the other spaces (public bar, restaurant and private dining room) began to fill up.
Choosing what to order was an easy decision. We had our eyes firmly on the cheese and charcuterie boards and a glass of a South Australian Pinot Grigio to match because, Saturday. To complement our selection, mushroom arancini and a pumpkin salad were also ordered to make our meal complete.
Mushroom arancini that are delightful pockets of risotto and truffle mayo topped with fresh parmesan.
Once again, showcasing Bellevue’s commitment to sourcing quality produce from local producers with a range of local cured meats, chutney and a generous serving of lavosh and crisp bread.
We chose the all 5 for $29 selection with a hand picked selection of Australian cheeses by chef James Metcalfe.
The pumpkin salad was the perfect way to cut through the richness of the other dishes, offering a light and refreshing addition to our already perfect meal.
Bellevue has been long standing since 1880 and it is easily apparent why this Paddington institution has been around for over a century. Good food and inviting spaces are here to stay.
