Pink Salt in Double has relaunched and gone is the so doublebay it hurts fitout (Pic here). New pink salt is of age and what’s on trend; incandescent, a nice woody warm interior and forest green tiles. We check in for dinner, met Evan (“umm.. you look familiarish” – well we forgot but apparently he was on MyRestaurantRules ages ago). Pink Salt is a now a modern Brasserie styled restaurant and a handsome one to boot.
A look at the menu. Price guide is reasonable and its an appealing selection of eats.
Pink Salt is a triple layered space. There’s outdoor seating, an inner dining setup and then there’s a bar/booth/lounge area up top. The whole venue was packed out tonight.
Duo of Entrees – Oysters with Shallots $4 each and Scallops with crackling were nice clean eats. Nice Sear on the Scallops.
Blue Eyed Cod, Celeriac, Asparagus and Bacon Crumbs. Pork Belly, Savoy Cabbage, Carrot and Pear ($33, $29)
Both mains were nicely presented and the crackling on that pork belly dish was really nice and crunchy with an juicy, melty pork. Both very nice mains and we quite liked both dishes.
Apple Parfait, Pecan shortbread and Dulce De Leche and a Buttermilk Panacotta with strawberry sorbet. Desserts like the mains were similarly nice and well presented and well priced at $15.
New Pink Salt was busy and packed when we visited and it’s clear that the reworked venue is appealing across a wider demographic now with its woodier, more rustic feel. We really enjoyed sitting in the al Fresco Area here with the breeze coming in. Gillian who who dined alongside had thrown a birthday do here (when we last visted) was quite impressed with how it is now. Service is friendly, engaged and attentive. Heard they did great cocktails and we’re gunning for a return visit.
