Becasse - Sydney

This Australian Gourmet Traveller 3 star restaurant serves either a la carte or degustation menus. Multilevel with an open kitchen at the far end of the ground floor it has no bar so it's best not to come too early for later reservations which may depend on a table being vacated.

Salad of Belgian endive
Salad of Queensland spanner crab

Seared scallops with scampi beignets
Hiramasu kingfish with ham hock
Roast wagyu rump cap
Roast rib eye of castricum lamb - an alternative to the wagyu
Coconut panna cotta with salad of melon

Vanilla cream brulee

The degustation menu ($120/person or $170 with wines) is interesting without being exceptional and serves are a reasonable size leaving one satisfied at the end of the meal
I was extremely pleased that they were prepared to serve a la carte to two patrons and degustation to two others at the same table - flexibility that I have not experienced at other venues.
Comments Justin North occasionally comes to Melbourne as a guest chef to Fenix and foodies should take the opportunity to enjoy his food here

Score: 16/20
