The team at the newly reopened Newtown restaurant Hartsyard has come up with a cracking way to help blast away those winter blues — and it involves generous weekend feasts and bottomless vino.
It has launched a new series of Saturday long lunches, which promise to go down a treat during these next frosty weeks, kicking into gear from August 4 and running for the entire month.
Chef-owner Gregory Llewellyn will be whipping up a $55 set menu to warm your cockles, up for grabs from 12–3.30pm each week. It's still in the planning stages, but we're told to expect dishes like raw fish, warmed oysters and roast cuts of beef. If you have dietaries, Llewellyn assures they can be accommodated for, too.
Meanwhile, the bar will be open and slinging its full range of liquid offerings, which just happens to include $14 espresso martinis. And for a special treat, you'll also be able to match your lunch with bottomless vino for $15 a head. Yes, really — $15.
For $15 on top of the set menu (which'll set you back $70 in total) you can spend your Saturday drinking unlimited wine, thanks to the folks at Sparrow & Vine. On the day, you'll be able to choose from either a pinot grigio or nero d'avola from the Barrosa Valley vineyard.
You can your reserve your spot at the boozy Saturday lunch, running from 12–3.30pm, via the website.
