Sidart (4)

Aug 18, 2012 Restaurants

Sidart " src="" alt="Metro Audi Restaurant of the Year 2012 - Sidart" width="640" height="427" />Level 1, Three Lamps Plaza, 283 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby. Ph 360-2122.

Lunch Friday; dinner Tuesday-Saturday. 


They do $50 degustation lunches on Tuesdays at Sidart — and yes, you definitely have to book. Chef Sid Sahrawat uses the occasion to try out new dishes and variations on his main menu, which means you get insights to the workings of a small and very dedicated fine-dining kitchen, the pleasure of being able to contribute yourself — feedback is very welcome — and (did we mention?) some of the most beautiful food, in all senses, you’ll find in this city. All for the price of not very much at all. And then, of course, you can come back at night and do it all again. Watch the lights of the city from the lovely back windows, relish the pampering service of expert maître d’ Ismo Koski, explore a smartly developed wine list and enjoy the exquisite delights of a menu inspired, but not overwhelmed, by molecular techniques, centred on fresh, quality produce and suggesting that if Sahrawat had not been a chef, he would surely have been a painter.

A favourite dish: Quail with wasabi, licorice and watermelon.
