The Coun­try’s Best

GQ (Australia) - - TASTE & TRAVEL -

The menu at this hole-in-the wall restau­rant – young gun Josh Ni­land the cre­ative force – changes ev­ery­day and you’d be hard-pressed to ex­pe­ri­ence bet­ter seafood any­where in Aus­tralia. Sea urchin with crum­pets. saint­

This is the hot new fish-fo­cused restau­rant from the team be­hind Bent­ley Restau­rant + Bar and Mono­pole. A stel­lar ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the bounty in our wa­ters, in­cred­i­ble tech­nique from the ta­lented Brent Sav­age and an ethos to keep things un­com­pli­cated make it a seafood restau­rant like no other. Whole flat­head and chips. cir­rus­din­ Michael Ba­cash is Mel­bourne’s king of seafood with an in­nate un­der­stand­ing of sea­son­al­ity, species and the best cook­ing meth­ods. Born of sim­plic­ity, his seafood sings on the plate. Char­grilled Port Phillip Bay baby cala­mari with pick­led fen­nel, smoked pa­prika and saf­fron aioli. ba­ The undis­puted best in Queensland, Esquire is owned by chef Ryan Squires, who re­lies on fish­er­man to call him in the wee hours with the best catch of the day – mean­ing the menu al­ters ac­cord­ing to what’s reeled in. A once-in-a-life­time chef with a magic touch. Miso-cured school mack­erel with charred pick­les.
