Last night was the highly anticipated and much talked about launch of North Sydney’s newest rooftop bar and restaurant, Hunter Gatherer. Perched high on above the Greenwood Plaza, sources say, the venue is by the owners of renowned Bondi establishments The Corner House and Panama House.
Invited bloggers and influencers were welcomed to a cocktail and canapé style evening. With a choice of cocktails, The Burnt By The Storm (Bundaberg Rum, in-house made Salted Caramel Ginger Beer and Lime) and Cobbled Together (Tanqueray Gin, Fino Sherry, in-house made Preserved Nectarines and Lemon). Beers flowed thanks to Sydney Brewery, as well as wines by Mad Hatter.
The interior had a Danish rustic farmhouse feel, a combination of lush greenery throughout, light fixtures and an illuminating changing landscape feature wall. The image changes and so does the lighting – quite mesmerizing.
I didn’t get to meet Michelin trained Head Chef Paul “Mick” Micklewright on the night, as he was cooking up a storm with his brigade. Hopefully I will be able to chat with Chef when I return and give you the inside scoop on his dining menu.
Serving up, as quoted by them ‘Hunted’ & ‘Gathered’ canapes to showcase his fresh and locally sourced produce. Batemans Bay oysters shucked on the spot by Luke Robinson of Oysters Unplugged; Thirlmere free range chicken liver parfait with brioche and onion jam; and O’Conners Range Black Angus wagyu brisket pasty with house-made pastry.
“With a menu on constant rotation, sustainable ingredients and ethical produce used. Chef you are a forward thinker.”
Whilst everyone was busy eating and drinking cocktails all night. I did managed to catch up with a few great friends of mine on the night. Haha shameless instagram plug. @helenchikx, @hungry_as_fork, @theweekendfoodie, @msdarlinghurst, @kristabelle_1, @christopherhaggarty
Hunter Gatherer trades Monday – Friday, with a license until midnight from Wednesday – Friday, providing your daily provisions from the canteen-style menu, or quenching your thirst after a long day in the ‘field’. The venue is also available for weekend functions and events.
