The Corner House
Corner House in Bondi was taken over by Ben Siderowitz (food truck New York Pastrami Deli) in August 2017.
Locals are pleased the pillowy butternut and polenta gnocchi is still on the menu. The venue has also kept the pizzas (crisp-based, simple toppings).
There’s also roast carrots and beef cheeks on potato puree; brussels sprouts fried and tossed with lentils, mint and a mustard dressing; and cauliflower roasted and dusted with Manchego and flaked almonds.
The wine list has 15 whites and reds in total – most sit in the middle price range. The cocktail list includes fresh peach and strawberry sodas and a gin sour with ginger, rhubarb and a subtle spike of wasabi.
Visually the space is still the same as when it was Corner House, with a few touch-ups here and there. It has different vibes depending on where you sit. The link between the more formal and causal areas is the recycled materials and joinery showing off the building’s heritage as an old tram stop.
