For let­ting your hair down

Bar Rochford

65 Lon­don Cir­cuit, Can­berra; www.bar­rochford.com.

Is it a bar? A restau­rant? Does any­one care? The only thing that mat­ters is this hand­some es­tab­lish­ment is the most smile-trig­ger­ing joint to open in Can­berra since Cock­ing­ton Green. Go early for hat­ted food with the re­gion's fresh­est pro­duce be­fore dessert plates are cleared and North­ern soul records start spin­ning.
