NOMAD Group's new multi-faceted 100-seat Surry Hills venue Beau is now complete. After launching Beau & Dough earlier in February, the Reservoir Street spot has now swung open the doors to its sleek wine bar and seafood restaurant.
Headed up by former Stanbuli chef Ibrahim Kasif, Beau & Dough is all about manoush. "I can't wait to see people walking down the street with a manoush in their hands," he says.
The laidback eatery is open 7am until late, seven days a week, serving flavoursome flatbread alongside Single O coffee and blue-eye trevalla burgers.
Beau Bar, its elegant sibling, still brings a welcoming energy to the site, but with an extensive selection of wine and heftier, more lavish eats. You can expect an impressive 300-strong vino list offering different varieties and price points.
"The opening wine list features around 300 bottles, with 25 wines by the glass, including wines on tap and premium wines served from Coravin," NOMAD Group's Beverage Director Ged Bellis says.
"The by the glass list will change on a weekly basis, with 'blink and you will miss them' pours of super rare wines available for those with a keen eye."
With private use of Fracks Lane which connects Reservoir Street to NOMAD's Foster Street, the bar is perfectly set up for a post-work or pre-dinner drop-in if you're on the hunt for an inner-city spot to enjoy an aperitif or a catch-up over a glass of wine. However, with the luxurious food options on offer, you can also settle in for dinner here.
In contrast to the expansive drinks list, the food menu is tight and refined. The initial 'On Ice' selection sets the tone with oysters, caviar and lobster. From there, you'll find XO oyster mushrooms, kingfish tabbouleh, coral trout and an ox-tongue and lobster roll.
Bookings are available, but walk-ins are also welcome. "Our private laneway is the perfect spot for the impromptu date," says NOMAD co-owner and Creative Director Rebecca Yazbek.
To begin with, Beau Bar is open from 5pm, seven days a week. Then, from Saturday, March 4, its opening hours will expand, with lunch on offer from midday.
Beau is located at 52 Reservoir Street, Surry Hills. It's open seven days a week, with Beau & Dough open 7am–late and Beau Bar open from 5pm.
