Review - Hayes Street Wharf Bistro



This is Alex Harmon's last review for 2015, and she ventured over the Coathanger to do it...



This gold patterned little French hideaway on the sleepy streets of Neutral Bay is a hidden gem. In an age of share plates, it was nice to settle in for a three-course-meal of continental cuisine.



I started with the delightful Chicken Liver Parfait ($16) with cherries, while my dining companion opted for Scallop and Crab Boudin Blanc ($18) – a kind of seafood sausage, served swimming in crab bisque and caviar...



...basically the south of France on a plate.



For mains, we both went red, in wine with a lovely 2012 Lorgeril Pennautier Malbec ($12/$58), and in meat, with the Beef Wagyu Brisket Bourguignon ($32) with truffle mash and the Lamb Shoulder Rack ($30). Both dishes were exquisite, particularly the latter, for its eggplant ratatouille and chickpeas.



When it came to dessert there was nothing we could do but divide and conquer - the Chocolate Fondant ($14) with hazelnuts and a tangy raspberry sorbet and the stunning piece of abstract art that is the Caramalised Banana Tarte Tatin ($14), made even more resplendent with dulce de leche and caramel ice-cream.



Outside there are views of the harbour, but in here you could be tucked away in a little bistro in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.
