Posto No. 19
Established by the Stables Group, ‘Posto’ translates literally as ‘place’ in Italian and the chic neighbourhood eatery sports communal tables in caramel wood, white tiles and potted ferns.
All-day breakfast features eggs in their myriad forms: poached with avocado, heirloom tomatoes and baby coriander; scrambled with chives and goat's feta; or baked with tomato sugo, soft herbs and chorizo. Healthier morning alternatives include bircher muesli, granola with poached pear, berry compote and honey labne, and porridge with saffron, figs, bananas and strawberries.
Coffee comes courtesy of Balmain’s Little Marionette and leaves are by Teacraft. Lunch starts from noon with generous sandwich fillings of crumbed chicken Milanese with baby cos, provolone, cherry tomato and chilli jam, and Italian-inspired plates like orecchiette with pancetta, peas and tomato butter sauce. Daily specials include mushroom and truffle risotto and smoked chicken honey hazelnut salad with mango dressing.
