Le Bon Funk
From the Lo & Behold Group, a natural wine bar with a restaurant fronted by head sommelier Josée Yeomans and chef-owner Keirin Buck. Vibe
Urban glamour decor, attracting a slick CBD clientele.
Natural wines rule, with at least 60% brought in independently by Yeomans, who was heavily influenced by a stint in south of France. “I want to broaden the perception of minimal intervention wines beyond funky and orange options,” she says. The list changes on each shipment, but expect 30-plus options under $100 and 50-plus that can go up to $254 for a Tschida magnum.
Produce-driven modern menu, such as rabbit boudin blanc and carrot, ($19), hanger steak ($36) and cedar jelly and foie gras toast ($16), a twist on kaya toast.
Fridays are your best bets to try more wines by the glass as Yeomans will be more likely to open her favourite magnum formats for the after-work crowd. Otherwise there’s typically one option each for white, red and sparkling by the glass.
