19 Clovelly Rd, Randwick, 9326 3573, clovelane. com. au You won’t find ego, bells or whistles at Clove Lane, but you will find seasonal produce, treated simply and with care. Take Jerusalem artichokes, for example: they arrive slow-roasted and skins on, darkly golden, and kissed by quince and shavings of chestnut. Or the brussels sprouts, bolstered by the fattiness of suckling pig, yet piquant from a light chilli dressing. Much like the food, the room itself is unfussy yet sophisticated. It’s just the kind of neighbourhood eatery your own neighbourhood longs for.
