Hunter Gatherer is the latest addition to the North Sydney bar and dining scene. Located where the Burgers by Josh pop-up once was in the Greenwood Plaza rooftop complex, the restaurant itself is spacious and modern.
I was invited to the launch party on Tuesday night to check out this lovely new space.
The menu is Ottolenghi inspired and is based around seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The bar here offers a range of craft beers, cocktails, and natural wines.
I very much enjoyed my glass of Mad Hatter shiraz, and the "Cobbled together" cocktail which was an interesting mix of Tanqueray gin, Fino sherry, house-made preserved nectarines and lemons.
The Burnt by the Storm cocktail
Bundaberg rum served with salted caramel ginger beer and lime, served with a 'burnt' umbrella for a humorous touch.
Kurobata pork croquettes
The canapés were quite substantial and gave a good idea of what the menu is like. The lamb ribs were so tender, with the meat falling off the bone. I enjoyed the freshly shucked oysters too, can't get much fresher than when it's shucked right in front of you!
I love the idea of the menu being split up into 'hunter' (meat based options) and 'gatherer' (vegetable based options) and the ability to mix and match the dishes to create a plate of goodies, makes me keen to check it out for dinner very soon.
