On Jason Jones' recent trip to Paris, he stumbled upon three rules of Parisian dining worth abiding by. Keep it simple. Serve it till late. Never shirk on the fries.
And so was born Entrecote. Jones' most recent venture, the new restaurant is modelled closely on the Parisian restaurant L'Entrecote and offers its South Yarra diners a refreshingly pure concept. A set menu with only one meal: Parisian-style steak frites at $39.90 per person.
Steak and fries with a side of salad in vinaigrette may not seem like the most complex of meals, but good quality products will get you pretty far in this world and Jones has teamed up with Hopkins River Beef producer Adam North to ensure that you're getting high quality sirloin worthy of the concept. Add to that the two marvellous Parisian traditions of fine dining available from noon until midnight and fries topped up upon request, and you've got yourself the pretty perfect option for a late night meal.
Extras you can opt for are added appetisers and cheese or desserts such as tarte tatin to finish. The bar and patio menu has some special pieces on offer as well, while $12 glasses of Mumm champagne and $2 oysters on the terrace 4-6pm make for a luxury summer afternoon, before a late night of playing Parisian.
