Windsor Wine Room

Keep it classic with a rosé matched with burrata and oysters, or get a bit more playful by pairing a natty number with jerusalem artichoke and hazelnut gnocchi.

Mamas Dining Group (Hochi MamaStraight Outta Saigon, Kiss and Tell) brought Windsor Wine Room to Chapel Street in June 2024, adding to the precinct's growing number of stellar wine bars.

Chef Michael Stolley (ex-Ish Restaurant and Eazy Peazy) is running the kitchen, plating up a mix of small and large sharing plates that are loosely inspired by a range of European cuisines — mostly Italian, German and French creole.

Start off with small plates like mussels escabeche paired with a fennel aioli and potato crisps, kingfish crudo with kumquat, cucumber and mint and burrata served with a vodka-spiked sauce. Bigger bites include a reasonably priced $38 bavette steak with a roast tomato butter, jerusalem artichoke gnocchi with hazelnut, sage and pecorino and a hearty cauliflower pie with French onion gravy.

As is in the name, wine is the star of the drinks list. And there's plenty to get through here. An impressive 23 drops are available by the glass, while the eight pages of bottles span Australian, New Zealand and European varietals.

These cover a vast range of vinos, with plenty on offer for both traditional wine lovers and fans of new-wave natty numbers. Cocktails, beers, and a pretty far-reaching collection of spirits round out the booze options.
