On my list: Flintcreek Cattle Co.
This is the sister restaurant to Rockcreek and, as expected, it’s the turf version although they do have a vegetarian and seafood option on the menu. The space is expansive with dining on 2 floors but feels comfortable.
Started with a selection of salads which included the gem lettuce and the corned lamb remoulade which were both very good in different ways…..the gem lettuce was a bit sweet from the lemon poppy seed vinaigrette and the corned lamb was equally good…..think very thin slices, basically a lamb prosciutto. The dressing was a hazelnut vinaigrette.
The menu is split between starters, small plates and mains and next up was a small plate….the venison pâté. It arrived with a grilled baguette and a delicious side of pickle relish….made the dish. Next up were the mains……king salmon and a braised wild boar shoulder which came with a parmesan potato gnocchi….rich with wonderful earthy flavors.
The wine for the night was a very nice Châteaneuf de Pape.
Finished with the bruleed banana split which was served with the usual ice cream but also with a not too sweet brownie, candied pecans and caramel sauce….outstanding…..once you got the hang of eating the partially caramelized bananas.
Service was excellent.
