A casual European-style brasserie connected to Urbane.
January 14, 2013
Conceived to offer a more relaxed dining experience than its older sister Urbane (with which it shares a kitchen), the Euro brasserie is nevertheless a little swankier than your usual 'casual dining' establishment.
The narrow, wooden floored interior is separated into two dining spaces – one on the lower tier, and one on the upper tier near the black zinc bar. The bar has plenty on-hand, and you are likely to find something you fancy on the 20-page wine list.
As for food, the mackerel and chorizo croquettes are a tasty starter, and the pork belly with chilli, green shallot and herb salad entree is a nice choice. For mains, the 18-hour lamb shoulder with lemon and fennel glaze is good value. Accompanied by two side dishes of your choice the one-kilogram cut can comfortably feed up to three people. Follow this with the chocolate pave, raspberries and mascarpone ice cream for dessert.
It may be worth noting that although the Euro is not too crowded for weekday lunch, in the evenings (when Urbane is also open) the kitchen is known to get a little backed up.
