Fitness First membership. Using an internet connection for this blog. Just not worth your money. Unless you’re Justin Hemmes, for his wealth is no issue, so eating here is chump change. Ash Street Cellar, hidden behind the Ivy, does bring smart European style to the centre of Sydney. Much needed.
There is an air of opulence however, and you will need more than spare change to eat and drink here. Vino by the glass starts at double figures and you haven’t even begun to think about food. There’s charcuterie and cheese, all quality I’m sure. A changing menu of more “substantials” might include morsels such as crostini topped with a cured meat, deep fried whitebait, shoestring fries, grilled lamb cutlets (2 at $22) or a new style hangover egg fry up with tomatoes in own cast iron oven dish. Good stuff that won’t blow your pants off, so there’s no need for a belt to secure them before you get here.
Unless they are attempting to conserve the world’s resources for some greater good, Ash Street cannot excuse its frugal value.
