Bistro St Jacques
Time Out says
A neighbourhood bistro serving classic French fare
The appeal of the neighbourhood French bistro lies in its traditions. This is where to go when you want the classics with no surprises; steak frites with Café de Paris butter, goat's cheese soufflé, French onion soup, and oysters served with Champagne vinegar. If the famously fragrant butter sauce invented in the French capital is not your preferred steak accompaniment, Bistro St Jacques in Redfern also have a pepper sauce and a Borderlaise. Parfait, cassoulet and brûlée are all present and accounted for on a menu primed for a cosy date night.
In these strange times we're living in, you can also enjoy a socially distanced bottomless lunch or dinner in their wine cellar that seats 10. An hour and a half seating is $85 per person and includes three courses (duck liver parfait, steak frites, and chocolate tart) with bottomless house shiraz, rose or sauvignon blanc.
And if your plant-based diet meant that you thought French dining was off the cards for you, think again. They also have a $49 vegan set menu, because not everything has to come with butter to be delicious.
