The Bourbon - Darlinghurst, Sydney

Kings Cross is ever changing, and it's always exciting to try out the many new places that pop up. 

One of the latest offerings is the New Orleans style restaurant, The Bourbon. The restaurant is headed by James Metcalfe of Etch fame, with a nice bar area that feels like you've stepped back in time. It's a buzzing venue, with live music every night which is always great.

The menu consists of some familiar sounding southern favourites, albeit with a more refined twist.

We start off the night with some tasty cocktails.


Gumbo

A more sophisticated version of the dish with spicy duck broth, smoked sausage, red chilli and coriander.

Glazed baby pork ribs

Flavoured with The Bourbon spice rub and chow chow. These are delectable, but I find the presentation a bit too refined for a dish that you are meant to get messy eating.

Spiced pork neck

Maple glazed, with crackling, cauliflower, honey and clove jus

Mac n' cheese

Wished there was more in this cute little pot of mac n/ cheese goodness. It definitely left me wanting more!

I really should visit Kings Cross (I've only been once). There seems to be quite a goldmine of food there!
