After a successful winter 2012 season, Otto Restaurant’s much talked about pop-up eatery, The Larder, has re-opened sporting a fresh, inviting summer theme.
Celebrating the Summer of Riesling, the dynamic pop-up restaurant on Woolloomooloo’s iconic finger wharf re-emerges as a relaxed, local haunt with a thoughtful menu obsessed over by head chef Richard Ptacnik. Casual is the name-of-the-game at The Larder, with a menu packed full of seasonal delights including cocktail carafes, Ocean Trout Kimchi, Crab San Choi Bow, Char Grilled Beef Tongue with Chimichurri and Crumbed Salmon Fin and Chermoula Aioli.
Owner John Fink describes his brainchild as “a dynamic restaurant that responds day to day to feedback from customers and ideas from the staff and kitchen” – delivering you high-quality food without the rigours that so many associate with fine dining.
Fairly priced and the option to bring your own make this trendy little hot spot February’s must visit destination. And while those of you who love your Riesling will already be half way to your cellar to pick the perfect bottle, those of you with less of an idea needn’t fear. The restaurant has a small, carefully chosen selection of Australian and New Zealand Rieslings by the glass.
An easy meander from the CBD, The Larder brings the fun back to Sydney’s somewhat stuffy dining scene, wowing those lucky enough to get a table with its superb array Charcuterie and share plates.
