One thing I love about lower the north shore is the lush and leafy landscape. I never tire of going for long walks around the neighbourhood, and there's plenty of awesome restaurants and cafes in Crows Nest and Neutral Bay for a nice rewarding drink and lunch after a hike.
Firefly is a great spot for a weekend cocktail and some fancy bar fare.
I opt for the Mr & Mrs Smith - a lovely mix of Sip Smith Gin, St Germain Elderflower liqueur, lavender sorbet
Firefly's infamous zucchini fries, served with aioli
I love zucchini, and whilst these were a tad oily, they were quite moreish and addictive.
Steamed pork belly buns
These had pickled vegetables, which helped balance out the fatty pork pieces.
Seared scallops with roasted beets, almond puree and basil oil
Juicy scallops served with roasted beetroot. The sauce was a bit of an overkill
Duck liver pate
The duck liver pate is served with onion jam and cornichons
A nice spot in Neutral Bay for some drinks and a decent all-day menu.
