Clearly, at the Calwell Club, chef Anthony Craig is aware of the customers within his focus, with a perfectly balanced menu that strikes a delicious balance between popular favourites and more avant-garde treats.

After becoming the darling of the Kingston bar scene, Little Brooklyn isn’t ready to rest on its laurels. Chef Ben Sanderson and his team have put together another menu filled with delicious treats, as well as a few favourites from their previous selection of American-style snacks and feasts. Little Brooklyn has always excelled with its offerings of snacks. Perfect for the pub environment, it’s not uncommon to see groups gathered around the table and picking at wings, nachos or a plate of tacos.

Not just a bar for Rydges Capital Hill guests, Capital & Co offers a casual meeting place for Canberra locals – perfect for Friday night drinks or a week-day after work catch up. Settle into one of the comfy couches and enjoy some drinks and bites from the Unwind Menu. Available every Monday to Friday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, the menu offers a range of drinks and snacks for only $5.00. If you’re after something more substantial than bar snacks, the Summer Menu from the Fig Tree Restaurant offers some great dishes to share with friends.

When was the last time you had a night at Sage Dining Rooms? If it’s been a little while, we certainly recommend you head back to the Gorman House favourite to see what the team has been up to between visits. While Sage is a great venue to celebrate a special occasion, it’s also a place where the constantly evolving menu means that there is always something surprising (and delicious!) that you won’t have seen before. The best news is a new five-course menu that showcases the exquisite skills of the Sage team.

I hope you survived the Multicultural Festival because Canberra is gearing up for another big outdoor experience. The Art, Not Apart festival will fill NewActon with artistic installation, performances, food and other events with an inclusive attitude that aims to stretch the boundaries of art. Canberra is getting creative this year on Saturday 14 March.


Sizzle and Spice at Debacle

16/02/2015 by Eileen Tang

With a quirky name and their 2-for-1 pizza nights, Debacle continues to be a staple favourite among Braddonites and other Northsiders. Having moved to a larger venue in the Mode 3 building and a recent change in management means things are fresh at this popular Braddon watering hole. Head chef Michael Lee has added an Asian influence to the menu, making the most of his brand-new industrial woks. New dishes including stir-fries, noodle soups, and rice dishes now feature on the Debacle menu.
