Sharing is caring at Kirribili's brand new contemporary Mediterranean eatery, where the salmon and scallop ravioli comes homemade, second cocktails are encouraged and polishing off a whole duck is commonplace. Sitting on Fitzroy Street in the middle of the lower north shore suburb, Fitzroy Food Co is the area's newest lunch and dinner spot — with a particular focus on shared food.
Putting a modern spin on Mediterranean tapas, FFC have plenty of sharing plates on offer — small, medium and large. Smaller plates range from half-shell Queensland scallops with serrano and mango salsa ($9), to Szechuan calamari with coriander ($8), lime and aioli, and twice-baked three-cheese souffle ($12). If you're feeling a little more peckish, there are medium sharing plates too; that salmon and scallop ravioli ($30), whole baby snapper en papillote ($30) or fried gnocchi with wild mushrooms, sage and pecorino ($22). Large plates are the top tier with whole confit duck twice-cooked with roast potatoes and jus ($50), half rack pork ribs with homemade smoky barbecue sauce and handcut fries ($50), and paella with chorizo, chicken, prawns, calamari and mussels ($45) on offer.
There's also innovative-sounding stone-baked pizzas, wagyu burgers and bacello (rustic homemade bread) sandwiches, and three different platters of charcuterie to nibble at. Finishing things off is a teeny dessert menu of tiramisu, lemon curd tart, chocolate fondant and brulee (all $12). Gather your crew and get down there to taste en masse.
