Ôter

Fine French dining in a Flinders Lane basement.

Having trained under the likes of Alain Ducasse and Joël Robuchon, and honed his craft in the kitchens at Pei Modern and Vue de Monde, there was never any doubt that chef Florent Gerardin was going to bring something special to Ôter on Flinders Lane. The latest venture from Kate and Mykal Bartholomew of Coda and Tonka fame, this basement eatery serves up high-end French cuisine with just a hint of Japanese. The spanner crab, for example, is served with confit tomato and kombu, while the tête de veau (whole veal head) is finished on a teppanyaki grill. As for wine, you're in good hands with sommelier Jordan Marr, who pulls his stock from the cellars of small but reliable French producers.
