More than its belly can
Chef Jean Francois opened his contemporary French Basque bistro in this sandstone terrace in Bourke Street, close to Taylor Square, in 2006. The terrace was built in 1852 and is heritage listed. Most of the wine on their extensive list is French, with just a couple of home-grown wines, perhaps for appearance's sake. The menu is restrained, but for mine, I would find it hard to go past the Redgate farm duck, with Medjool dates, and a hazelnut & radish sauce for $37.
