Review - The Renegades


WEBTheRenegades-01

A wine bar, you say, in Mascot? Truth be told, it’s not a suburb I usually visit unless it’s to blow this town, but somehow I found myself agreeing to check it out. Despite a name that summons a bikie dive, you’re actually looking for a slickly fitted out blonde-wood café/wine bar at the end of a row of restaurants, in an industrial/residential complex.

The menu offers up wraps and hot sangers like the Reuben ($9) or...

On cool days they’re also trotting out a substantial Lamb Meatball with Korma and Red Lentil Soup ($13.50).

When I gave them some stick about their Reuben not being quite the real deal, owner Elizabeth Woods (ex-Bite Café at Simon Johnson Alexandria) was quick to quip: “Well, we are The Renegades…” They’re finally finished the merry council dance for extended trading hours, so on Thursday and Friday evenings they’ll be open late in a wine bar format.
