Fish Face Double Bay
It revamped its Darlinghurst digs late last year in favour of a more casual approach, but ever on the lookout for a good catch, the team at Fish Face rounded out 2013 by opening a new outlet in Double Bay, to house what is now the main Fish Face concept.
Tucked into the busy main drag of New South Head Road, the new Fish Face looks like an unassuming, yet nicely presented fish-and-chip joint from the front. But slide past the high tables, the wooden bar in front of the open kitchen and the iridescent tiles and you’ll find the casual eatery opens onto a welcoming, larger space for finer dining at the rear. This back area is Fish Face Dining, which brings back memories of the original space in Darlinghurst, with a similar interior.
There’s plenty of sushi-style fish on the menu, along with dishes like pungent yellow curry of blue eye trevalla, or flaky filo wrapped ocean trout, but there are classics too like the battered flat head fish and chips, and there might even be some beef on the menu- all of the high quality that Fish Face has become known for.
