This is a place I hope never changes; except for the seasonal menu, which of course, does.
It's a heritage dining room with a modern menu that respects the need for time honoured classics (lemon sole, chateaubriande for two) as well as the occasional adventure in food fashion (there's always an interesting new entree or dessert to try).
The jokes of the head waiter are as comfortably well-worn as the 1930s decor. Like the Cole Porter standards playerd by the resident pianist, they are timeless and I never tire of them. The room is so full of soft furnishings that the acoustics encourage quiet conversation and a relaxed ambience. The upholstered semi circular booths are perfect for a conspiratorial huddle with colleagues over lunch.
I just wish a few more young people would discover this gem on the second story of Tattersalls Club in Pitt Street (you don't need to be a member or play the pokies!).
