Scarlett Restaurant is built upon the site of Sydney’s first hospital – you wouldn’t be able to tell that by looking at the interior.
All around are marble table tops, polished cutlery and backlit glasses highlighting the main dining area. There is a gorgeous sandstone wall etched with markings which certainly add to the regal ambience.
Entrees of Cured trout, coriander pesto, vanilla croutons, caviar $22 and Beef tataki, sticky rice, shiso, ponzu $22 showcased some delicately-cooked proteins
Chicken assiette, petit pois a la francaise $36 suffered from dryness however the other main we sampled Pigeon, beetroot, balsamic film, cranberries $38 fared better in terms of moistness.
Desserts are pretty standard but enjoyable, Dark chocolate mousse, mixed berries, white chocolate $12 and Espresso creme brulee, hazelnut praline, ice cream $12 both hit the sweet spot.
