Basque-inspired tapas lounge accommodates the second level of much-loved Manly Greenhouse.
Manly has become quite the dining destination with restaurants boasting waterfront views and menus crafted by some of Sydney’s most renowned chefs. Manly Greenhouse attests to this with its iconic location just metres from Manly Beach and award-winning chef James Evangelinos (The Musket Room New York, The Centennial, Guillaume at Bennelong) behind the kitchen. After gaining a hat at The Centennial, Evangelinos took over the Manly Greenhouse kitchen to transform the ground floor offering, before turning his attention to the Wine Room.
Just when you thought this multi-level dining destination couldn’t get any better, Evangelinos and the team transformed the middle floor into a Basque-inspired tapas lounge called the “Wine Room”. The theme has been well executed from the dark and mysterious colour palette, leather stud pressed bench seating and smoked glassware. Staying true to its name, the shelves are stacked high with 400+ bottles of international wines handpicked by a team of wine enthusiasts.
Evangelinos has curated a menu that melds French and Spanish influences to create simple, but delicious share plates. Harnessing the power of fire and flame, wood smoke and searing heat, you can expect tapas dishes packed full of flavour, fresh off the charcoal plancha.
Offering an impressive set menu on both Friday and Saturday nights and a generous bottomless lunch on weekends, the Wine Room is set to become a Manly institution.
