@313

Porchetta roast with fennel, chilli and paprika, grilled cabbage, radish and roasted pink lady apples

Think catering food, and what generally comes to mind is either trays of monotone sandwiches and baguettes, or plates of uninspiring golden brown fried items. And sure, while I love a good sanga and arancinni as much as the next person, its hardly memorable stuff. @313 obviously felt the same way, as they set about gearing up their function space ...

For someone that likes to keep an eye out for new and interesting place to visit, it never ceases to amaze me just how many there are that have never even been a blip on my radar. Sure, this is far from a full time pursuit – if only – but it’s not often I am completely surprised by somewhere. ...

IMGP1113_rs

I think I want to be adopted into an Italian family. It’s not the first time I have thought this either, but it was just reinforced having walked away from the 50th birthday celebration at Port Pizza Bar (aka Carmine and Co). 50 years is a long time for a restaurant to exist, and to not just survive but thrive ...

If the idea of skewer after skewer of lovingly prepared and flame grilled meats being carved and served at your table by attentive passadores sounds like the makings of a memorable evening, then B’churrasco should be top of your future dining plans.
