Et Al Restaurant
Time Out says
Get to know the owners at this locally powered urban eatery
You’ll find a decent wine list and contemporary bistro dishes at this cosy dining spot just off the bustling Llankelly Place laneway. The first thing to do at Et Al is introduce yourself to co-owners, Daniel Backhouse and Stephen Craig. This pair are old hands in the Sydney bar and restaurant scene, and they’re want a community-focused atmosphere for their small alfresco venue.
Once you’ve made your introductions, settle into the brightly decorated courtyard (don’t worry, it’s heated in the colder months) and order from the menu of shareable plates. Smaller serves include a smoky ricotta and radish salad coloured with baked beetroot, or a rich blue cheese tart with a zingy side of caramelised onion. Try the seared Spanish mackerel that’s softened with a tuscan bean stew for an unusual main-sized meal. Then there’s a classic bread and butter pudding for dessert.
Coffee and sandwich fans (who isn’t?) should come in on Fridays for a free brew with their $15-dollar sangas – there’s options like a tangy Reuben or a four-cheese toastie. Wednesday evenings in July will be dedicated to warming winter pies and on Sundays you can check out an alternative retro menu.
