Good morning, [insert your name here]. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves gracing a local restaurant and bar in Chippendale. You may select any two team members, but it is essential that the third member of your team be Nyah Nordoff-Hall. She is a civilian, and a highly capable professional thief. You have forty-eight hours to recruit Miss Hall and meet me in Hyde Park to receive your gastronomic assignment.
Search amongst the terraces and apartments that litter the suburb for the renovated mission with a fresh coat of Egyptian Blue paint. Dine in a space that’s glows via candle light, creating an intimacy which also doubles as an art gallery that showcases the pieces for sale. You will find a chameleon menu that changes and adapts to the produce of the season. Target a trio of dips of a wholesome borlotti bean, a tame baba ganoush and pureed pumpkin with chargrilled bread for starters. Defuse the overly busy sliced seared lamb rump, still pink and tender in the middle, that’s bodyguarded by a mini pie, diced zucchini and spring onion. The prized crispy skin ocean trout is a higher priority; flesh just cooked through floating on a silky sweetcorn puree contrasted with a fresh yet zesty tomato salsa.
As always, should any member of your team be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions. This message will self-destruct in five seconds.
