Previously the home of Missy French, Lot. One in Potts Point has become a valued addition to the Potts Point dining scene. Their chic décor and incredible food are instrumental in creating the fine-dining experience Lot. One wishes every patron to have.
Head Chef, Xenia Jade, has created a menu that mixes classics with an Australian twist. “We define our cuisine as Australian Fusion. We didn’t want to use the term “Modern Australian” because contrary to the title, it doesn’t seem so modern anymore, having been used excessively.”
By using Australian ingredients such as kangaroo and native succulents, Chef Xenia has reinvented the Lot. One menu. “The menu has evolved over some time. It is an adventurous blend of ideas, which have sprung from many cultures and international cuisines. Native and local ingredients are always the star of the dishes, garnished with a little bit of multicultural experimentation.”
We started off the night with cocktails by the bar, I enjoyed an East 8 Hold Up, a drink I highly recommend to anyone who decides to venture to Lot. One. My dinner guest for the night, Anna, enjoyed a Tom Collins cocktail.
If you’re not too keen on cocktails, Lot. One’s wine list boasts a huge selection of Australian and international wines to compliment every dish on the menu.
For starters we had Sydney Rock oysters from Wagonga in Southern NSW ($4 each). Half with granita and half natural. Whilst I usually prefer my oysters natural, the granita was incredible. We also had the Aranchini ($4 each) which seemed to just melt in my mouth.
For main, I had the Sirloin ($40) with ash crust, mouli, tomatoes and eschallot. Anna had the Spaghetti in Brodo ($30), squid ink pasta in a shellfish broth, vongole with seasonal seafood and native succulents illustrating Lot. One’s fusion of Australian ingredients. The Beetroot salad ($12), a mixture of roasted and raw beetroot with feta, olives and pistachios, served as a delicious ending to a fantastic main meal.
Having enjoyed an incredible meal, we decided to splurge on a dessert. Lot. One offers a number of desserts influenced by iconic chocolate bars that will remind you of your childhood treats. On the recommendation of the co-owner, Michael Bradley, we opted for the Snickers ($14) and were delighted when we were served a delicious ensemble of chocolate, peanuts and caramel. A wonderful way to finish the night!
Whether you’re there for an exquisite dinner or for a few delicious cocktails to start off the night, Lot. One has you covered for an incredible night.
