For a time, there was no real incentive to hang around North Sydney after dark. But that's all changed, thanks to this hidden green oasis on the rooftop of 100 Miller Street, close to Mount Street Junction.
The menu is best described as modern Australian with hints of Asian flavour. For lunch, you might order a barbeque beef brisket burger with chipotle slaw and a green bowl with tofu, brown rice, avocado and seaweed. At dinner, it might be blue swimmer crab pasta, or a shareable Black Angus rib eye served on the bone with condiments and a watercress salad. Dessert might range from a fig carpaccio with finger lime ricotta and honey pistachio crumb, to a decadent chocolate fondant.
The team here has has pulled together a long wine list with drops from local winemakers including South Australia’s Torzi Matthews, Jericho and Paxton. On the cocktail front, expect classics with a fresh, Australian twist.
Floor-to-ceiling glass windows show off panoramic views of North Sydney. The indoor-outdoor rooftop space is a drawcard – perfect for lingering longer than the hasty after-work drink typically allows.
Architect John Cochrane, interior designer Ruth Harris, graphic designer Melanie Topham, and The Grounds of Alexandria resident horticulturalist Erin Martin have collaborated to make Green Moustache look like a greenhouse. Red and white neon light installations are dotted throughout, and there’s a mix of custom-designed tiled table tops, some with gold finishing.
