Birthdays are the best excuse to eat cake, as the folk at Chiswick will tell you.
Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan’s popular neighbourhood restaurant is celebrating its second birthday this month, by dishing out complementary Bombe Alaska desserts to all midweek lunchtime diners.
Cap off a delicious, seasonal lunch (Autumn menu highlights include chargrilled cuttlefish with smoked eggplant and peppers; and an orecchiette with chorizo, chilli and broccolini) with a feather-light version of the dessert classic.
And in true Chiswick style, the Bombe Alaska has its own garden-to-plate touches, like a fresh berry medley.
“The kitchen garden at CHISWICK is incredible, I love the fact that we harvest herbs and vegetables each morning and by lunchtime they are being served to customers,” says Peter.
These autumnal bursts extend to the drinks menu, which features a Garden Punch (fresh rosemary, basil, gin, prosecco, peach, pineapple and almond syrup) and house-made sodas like the fresh-as-a-daisy kaffir lime and lemongrass soda. They are a welcome addition to a menu where provenance is key; the Moran family lamb from the Central Tablelands is definitely still a must-try here.
Happy second birthday, Chiswick!
