Bar Vincent is a restaurant that looks like it’s been doing the same thing in the same spot for many years.
Owners Sarah Simm (Billy Kwong) and Andy Logue (Melbourne’s Pinotta and Scopri) are focused on getting the best out of their produce. They’ll tell you where everything comes from and maybe the name of the farmer who reared it. Because of that, the menu changes daily – Logue’s dishes are based on what’s available at the market.
There’s been maltagliati (roughly cut pasta squares) with braised oxtail, spatchcock with polenta, kingfish carpaccio, and a simple lemon cake with ricotta. There’s always fresh oysters and pasta on offer.
The corner eatery is simple and charming, with stone floors, archways and lovely natural light, making it an extremely relaxed space to be in. Whether that’s for a solo lunch of pasta (and a glass of sprightly nebbiolo) or a long, lazy feast.
