A bar and kitchen in a leafy back street of the Cross brings the home-style comforts
If you find yourself longing for your own living room when you’re out searching for dinner and drinks, then head to Parsons Bar and Kitchen. This cosy Potts Point joint, the project of brothers Nick and Joe van der Heide and partner Byron Dunn, is a homestyle haven of well-worn Chesterfields and handwritten blackboard specials.
The warm service and generous portions will also remind you of home, with a seasonal menu offering diverse flavours and vegetarian options. Their winter warmers include a creamy pumpkin fettuccine and a rich beef cheek ragout. But the star of the show has to be the woodfired lamb shoulder, shiny with balsamic glaze and served with chips and salad. It’s a feast for two to four people, but you’ll need to order it a day in advance – it takes some dedicated preparation.
Make the most of your evening at Parsons with some of their weekly specials. There’s happy hour Tuesday-Friday from 5-7pm, $14 pasta on Wednesdays and on Thursdays you can score two mains and a bottle of wine for $60. Cheers to that.
