I think I may have found a new snazzy lounge that a few girlfriends and myself can go hang after work on a Friday night or over the weekend for a bite to eat with a drink… or two 😉 Check out the slick decor at D’artagnan, a new restaurant that was recently opened on O’Connell Street, North Adelaide:
Interior and front bar
N and I arrive and are led to our table by our waiter. We take our time to peruse the menu whilst exploring our surroundings. The wine display is unique and different with shelves upon shelves of wine laying down with labels facing up, the light feature is gorgeous with many bulbs housed under a mini lamp shade – super cute! The wall opposite the bar has mirrors and a few high tables with bar stools and in the centre of the room, a long sofa area with cushions, stools and tables for patrons to ‘chill’.
‘Share Me’ platter: San Daniele prosciutto, Parma ham, 2 Australian cheeses served with glacé fruits and rocket. Serves 2; $29.00
Oven roasted Tasmanian salmon with prawn tortellini, softened leeks, asparagus and shellfish bisque; $32.00
Oven roasted centre-cut of beef fillet with baby spinach, truffle cream, ham and cheese croquettes and shiraz glaze; $34.00
We kick off with a platter to share, a platter on a wooden board is presented with cheese, sliced meats, bread and rocket. Loved the variety with both of the cheeses being my favourite… you can’t go wrong with cheese in my book! 😉 Next up, mains: N opted for the salmon and although it didn’t knock her socks off, she still enjoyed her dish. I ordered the beef fillet which I found a bit bland even with the accompaniments so extra salt was needed for taste. Having said that, I still enjoyed the dish with the croquettes being the winner. Golden crispy nuggets of ham and cheese, tasty, fluffy and light! *drools*
Majella Coonawarra Riesling; $38.00 (bottle)
Warm ginger bread with caramelized apples and cinnamon ice cream; $14.00
Whilst waiting for our dessert to arrive, there was a small group of people gathered at the centre sofa waiting for a table to free up. Our super friendly waiter asked us if it was okay for us to move to the sofa to have our desserts along with complimentary cocktails. No problem! Once moved and comfortable, the dessert arrives: the ginger bread is warm, rich and spicy and the scoop of ice cream quickly melts from the heat and drowns the cake caramelised apples. OH MY… so. good. Whilst I’m digging through the goodness, these babies also arrive:
Brandy Alexander: a velvety mix of St Agnes brandy, white chocolate liqueur and cream, with a sprinkle of nutmeg; $16.00
Apple Martini; $16.00
What a FANTASTIC night! Splendid service, decent food and warm atmosphere, can’t wait to head back here to take advantage of their $10.00 cocktails every Friday between 5pm-7pm. 😉
Dined using a scoopon deal: $49.00 for two people includes: tasting platter, 2 x mains, bottle of wine and dessert.
