Review of Yellow
Yellow is the latest edition to the (Chef) Brent Savage and (Sommelier) Nick Hildebrandt team. Their other award winning establishments being the sophisticated Bentley Restaurant & Bar and their wine bar Monopole.
Yellow comfortably takes the place of their more casual offering. Inspired by the European dining scene, Yellow seeks to provide contemporary cuisine in informal surroundings at affordable prices. We think it indeed does just that.
The interior features muted greys with a warm industrial feel and surprisingly not a hint of yellow. Turns out the building was once home to the 1960’s collaborative artist’s movement, ‘The Yellow House Artists Collective’. We guess that inspired the name.
Food-wise, the a la carte dinner menu is small, but interesting. But, what is most interesting to note is that for dinner – Yellow is vegetarian only. Yes, you heard right, not a single piece of meat is featured on their dinner menu. As well as their a la carte dinner options, they also offer Vegetarian and Vegan tasting menus.
Vegetarian menu aside, there is no denying the ‘Savage’ flair in the dishes and the food certainly lives up to that which we’ve come to expect from the Bentley crew. This may be a more informal style of dining, but you should still expect top notch cuisine.
Plus good to know, they offer a brunch menu on weekends. Though, you will find meat dishes on these menus!
Of course, the wine has not been forgotten and their list features a unique selection of Australian and international wines, reflecting current trends in the industry. Expect to see interesting grape varieties and little known producers.
We think Yellow is a welcome edition to the Bentley empire. These guys are really making a name for themselves on the Sydney food and wine scene. In our view, their accolades are well and truly deserved. There is no denying they’ve got the x-factor.
