Born in Brunswick

Hobart may be one of our smallest major cities but it is fast becoming a hotbed of culinary talent. Born in Brunswick has joined the throng of new-wave restaurants eager to explore and champion Australia’s gorgeous native ingredients in a contemporary setting. Polished concrete walls and floors, blond woods and native plants provide a stylish platform for food that awakens the tastebuds. The twang and crunch of pickled fungus is mellowed by the toothsome, creaminess of cuttlefish before black garlic and poached stone fruits gift a sweet kiss to slender pieces of cured venison. Then a playful savoury-meets-sharp juniper and wattleseed cheesecake turns a classic on its head with wit and whimsy. Brilliant.
