Brothers James and Will Christopher have been serving tapas to Cammeray since 2013 at Ms. Miller. They are also behind The Laneway cafe next door and the newer The Public bar a few doors along – these guys know what the locals like. The menu offers small or large plates with a charcuterie and cheese selection that you can build yourself.
Twice-cooked brussels sprouts with capers and jamon; beetroot and fetta croquetas; and Wagyu meatballs with pomegranate and mint yoghurt feature on the small-dish list. Large dishes include barbeque-glazed pork ribs with apple and mint slaw; five-hour lamb with preserved lemon; and char-grilled skirt steak with smoked eggplant and crushed hazelnuts. Wednesday is paella night, and Thursday night is for mussels, with your choice of three sauces, all served with patatas bravas and a glass of wine.
The wine list plays to Australian and Spanish varieties and there’s a neat selection of cocktails. The brothers have added lunches to the menu, with a selection of boccadillos (baguettes). Weekend brunch includes the double-bacon burger, or eggs with lamb meatballs. Pull up a stool at the white-tiled bar, grab a table with the mural of Ms. Miller looking over you, or make use of the sunny pedestrian thoroughfare – it’s BYO from Tuesday to Thursday night.
