No. 100 Flinders Lane
No. 100 Flinders Lane is a cosy bistro and deli by Code Black Coffee founder Joseph Haddad. Though cafes are his wheelhouse, No. 100 is predominantly a wine bar and bistro with a Euro-Australian lean.
The We Are Humble-designed restaurant is a two-part operation. At the front is the deli housing a large, round booth, a few bar seats, and a fridge full of salumi and antipasti. Capocollo or prosciutto di San Daniele can be ordered by the plate or layered into sandwiches. There are also a few menu-listed combos like oyster mushrooms with cashew cream, and veal carpaccio with fermented chilli hollandaise.
Around the corner is a moody, wood-panelled dining room big enough for 20 people. Sheer white curtains shield diners from onlookers, offering a quiet respite from the bustle of Flinders Lane.
The evening menu takes influence from Europe through a local lens. Kingfish is cured in citrus and served with nori, buttermilk, chives and herbs while squid is sliced to resemble noodles, lightly torched, and served on a bed of white bean, ‘nduja and pesto.
As for drinks, the menu centres around approachable wines that straddle the line between alternative and conventional. There’s also a strong focus on local producers. The cocktail list includes the Martini 100, made with eucalypt, vermouth and South Australian Never Never gin; and the Silver Fox, a blend of rye, hazelnut, bitters and Code Black coffee liqueur. Meanwhile, if you need a post-meal pick-me-up, the coffee machine stays on until close.
