Review of The Bridge Room
The Bridge Room is a collaboration between (chef) Ross and Sunny Lusted and the Fink Group (who are behind Sydney institutions Quay and Otto Ristorante). Not bad credentials.
The Bridge Street restaurant has effortless elegance down pat. You wont find the white tablecloths and stuffy service which are often found in a restaurant of this calibre, here. Instead, you will be greeted with warm oaks and soft greys and a retro modern feel. You see, The Bridge Room doesn’t need to show off. This restaurant is confident. This restaurant is comfortable in its own skin.
Chef Ross Lusted is behind the food and the food is one of the main reasons you will keep returning. That is if the perfectly poised and attentive wait staff don’t win you over first.
The menu is Modern Australian and is crafted using the best seasonal ingredients. We are pleased to see only a handful of dishes offered under each section. We much prefer to see a small range of dishes executed perfectly, rather than a large range of mediocre dishes. And, boy, oh boy, are these dishes executed perfectly. Not only are the dishes beautifully described and presented, but those flavours will have your eyes popping and your mouths uttering ‘oh my gosh’ before too long. This is. Seriously. Good. Food. Full stop.
This is what a restaurant should be all about. Elegant and relaxed surroundings. Exquisite food. Attentive wait staff. The Bridge Room has it all.
