Panama House was on Bondi Road for five years before it moved to this more stylish address. But Latin American dishes and bottomless boozy brunch are still the major attractions, alongside a new charcoal oven and some stellar beach views.
The new restaurant is two-and-half-times the size of the old venue, with seating for 125. It was designed with local stylist Jason Grant and features reclaimed brick walls, ironbark hardwood tables and leather banquettes with a direct line to the marble kitchen. The most popular spot is bound to be the glass balcony overlooking the beach, decked out with timber benches and colourful cushions.
You’ll still find on the menu dishes such as corned beef hash brown and huevos rancheros. Mimosas, Bloody Marys or Micheladas flowing from Friday to Sunday.
At dinner, Latin and South American flavours have been given an Australian influence in share plates such slow-roasted mojo-marinated pork belly with celeriac slaw, jalapeno cream, desiccated red chilli and chervil.
