Review - Hawthorn Mosman

This week I sent Alex Harmon to hob-nob with the upper class at a new entry on the north side called Hawthorn Mosman, and here's what she made of her experience...

Stepping into the pristine Mosman real estate, diners abuzz and spotless white furniture, I felt like a wedding crasher at a socialite’s nuptial. You could say it’s the marriage of Jonah’s ex-manager Sean Byrne and Bill’s ex-head chef Marco Salvador – so what’s not to celebrate? Calling for freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters ($4) helped is get in the mood. This paved the way for a Salad of Sautéed Prawns ($17) with green papaya, purple basil and Vietnamese mint, balanced nicely with a glass of their St Claire Sauvignon Blanc ($11). The bouquet of garden herbs behind me were a pleasant compliment to the freshness of the food. For main I kept the aquatic theme afloat with Fish of the Day ($26), a grilled Kingfish with a posy of blood orange reduction. My dining partner’s Grilled Chicken Breast ($25) on soba noodle, with a sesame and snow pea salad reflected Marco’s heritage (we can’t forget his time at Bill’s Tokyo.) Stroll outside and it’s a post-colonial beach-house, settle into the wine bar and it’s a gentleman’s library with tufted leather furniture and stained glass windows. Tasteful dining and a relaxed, breezy manner make it a match made in heaven - I felt I’d died and gone to Hawthorn.
