With it's beautiful sculpture garden outlook, smart service and inspiring menu, Persimmon is a winner. But, be warned, don't arrive too hungry, the meals are rather small. The john dory was excellent but the foaming whipped egg white accompaniment was rather odd. The Crunchy crab & scallop dumpling was however a disappointment, more deep fried and less "dumpling" than I would have wanted. The entree of tempura-like calamari had a strong sage flavour reminiscent of a dish from 1940's but it was interesting. Persimmon is also rather expensive compared to say its interstate competition at the Art Galley of NSW for in Sydney (for instance). Still, the clearly NGV is well worth a visit and is free. The Persimmon is not but they were kind enough to honour my interstate AGNSW membership with a 10% discount. It was overall a good lunch!
