The Greenwood Hotel, North Sydney

DSC00801Everyone 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.

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.

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.

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.

DSC00802We 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.
