I dined recently at Bowery Lane Sydney in anticipation of their delicious new dinner menu.
It can be summed up by their plentiful options of tasty share plates, generous portions and super slick service. The food is artfully arranged, which shows that someone is taking great care and love with the food, that hits those beautiful platters.
First up, my ultimate dish/share plate of the night, was the 1kg of braised wagyu short rib Meltingly soft, delivered to the table with a flourish. I dig the rustic vibe of what a great hunk of meat is saying.
With a whole garlic bulb surrounding it with some creamy concoction of horseradish and juicy slabs of beautifully rendered fat. On the night you go, be very sure to take your favourite carnivores and relish in that delicious dish together.
The Manchego croquettes, so crisp on the outside and delicate on the inside. If you have a veggie loving friend, they won’t go hungry. Big wedges of cos lettuce, with a smattering of green bean and peas, means even your green loving fiends can find something tasty. There was the mention of Marinated globe artichokes as a main too, somewhere on the current dinner menu.
Various other sides included the Pork collar, with a generous amount of crackling to boot. Also included were a delicate House smoked salmon, Soft shell crab sliders & Prawn sliders. Buttery curls of Jamon with an artfully arranged salad, just so.
I could see the Lamb ribs were popular too. Arranged in a Jenga like stack. It’s always fun to see who takes the first one and whether or not that meaty tower will topple!
If you’re looking for a suitably hearty feed for a main, then the pork cotoletta (schnitty-esque) is your ultimate bite.
On the other hand, I chose the Barramundi with a crisp skin, all over, just the way it should be. Along with a Parsnip purée, just the right amount so you can gather the caramelised leek and King brown mushrooms together in one creamy swoop on your plate.
As we know, a delicious food story is never complete without a sweet ending.
This night it was in the form of a Gingerbread ice-cream sandwich with a nutty praline, so delicious you’ll spend your whole night dreaming about the buttery soft pear which accompanies the chewy gingerbread sponge and those nuts.
For my liking, I feel like I needed extra ice-cream in the middle & because it was soooo good, I feel like an ice-cream sandwich has to be about the ice-cream (and) less so the things accompanying it! (I can’t help it, because I am an ice-cream fiend!)
For me (as for many,) it’s about the details of the night. Not only in the food & in the way it’s produce is celebrated, but the general merriment and vibe. Bowery Lane has it all, a great new option for after hours dining in the city. It was packed the night we went with happy revelers everywhere.
Other delicious options included the cookies and cream in a jar, a little garden of berries nestled on the top too.
It’s a great thing to see the city becoming a tasty hub after hours. If you’ve often visited Bowery Lane in the daytime, only to wish they had a dinner menu, then here’s your chance. It was packed to the brim on the night I dined with many happy revelers around at all the tables. A especially big thanks to Bowery Lane for the most delicious food and hospitality. Along with the team at Wasa Media too.
