Review: Bowery Lane (Sydney CBD)

Life is busy at the moment. I don’t get to go eat out that often, and I don’t get to see people (outside of uni/work/centre) that often. That’s why I’m so happy I finally got to try Bowery Lane and hang out with my sister and our friend Susy.

We ordered several dishes to share, perhaps too many as they wouldn’t fit on the table! They had a menu marked with dishes that were or could be made gluten-free and did change one of the dishes when the gluten-containing version was sent to the table.

Given that a) I really enjoyed everything that we ordered and b) I don’t have time to write an in-depth review of each dish, I’ll just say what we had and let the photos speak for themselves.

Meaty dishes were char-grilled lamb ribs with gremolata and rocket, Wagyu bresaola with poached egg, asparagus, pecorino and black vinegar, and tuna carpaccio with avocado purée, pickled cucumber, grapefruit. We also had a vegetarian dish: La Stella burrata with confit heirloom tomato, radish, lemon basil and candied olive, and a couple of sides: whole roasted sweet potato with labneh and pumpkin seed, and sautéed seasonal greens with chilli (it is meant to come with garlic pangrattato -i.e. breadcrumbs-, but was ordered without it).

Did we order too much food? There was no room for dessert and no desire to go for a drink and fries afterwards, so I would say yes. Not regretting it, though.
