Location: Level G, Harbourside, The Star/80 Pyrmont St, Pyrmont
We have been lucky and have an uncle come help us at the restaurant and so mum has been able to sneak a few nights off again! In saying that, we were hoping to go and capture a few shots out in the CBD – however we found ourselves wandering in The Star for dinner as it was starting to sprinkle.
|Chestnut's pappardalle with duck ragu' $26.00|
We start with the pastas as our entrée; mum had the duck with traditional squares. It wasn’t something that tickled my fancy much, as I found the pasta a little harder than I usually like it.
|Saffron potato gnocchi with spanner crab, chilli and garlic $29.00|
|Roast rosemary potatoes $10.00 |
Rocket and Parmesan salad $12.00
Not wanting to over order, we decided to settle for one main and two side dishes. The rosemary potatoes were so crunchy around the edges, the rosemary was subtle enough, a little overly salty for a few pieces here and there but that was not an issue! What can I say about the rocket and parmesan? Everything had the right amount to ensure it was nice and tasty!
Mum’s not much of a red meat eater, so we had the snapper baked in a bag! It’s my first time having fish cooked in a bag, and it was so awesome!! The fish was great; it simply melted in your mouth. I’m not a fan of olives, and the taste was fairly distinctive in this dish – but it was something I could bring myself to continue eating because everything else was just so delicious!
It was a great night, with attentive staff. You get a pretty good view of Pyrmont too, so that’s always a nice bonus.
Until next time,
