Bring your apetite. Or a teenager

Surprisingly quiet Sunday afternoon - why isn't this place packed? It's still a bit new, suggested the lady who 'd recommended it. Nicely designed, comfortable and roomy seating with knowledgeable and attentive but not intrusive staff. We had the suggested menu - tender quail portions on a vegetable escabeche that I would have been quite happy to eat for the rest of the meal, followed by an "inbetween" that the waiter sensibly suggested we share - I had been advised that their home-smoked waygu beef was not to be missed. It was wonderful, but by then I felt that I'd had more to eat that some winery restaurants offer for a full meal. Main course was perfectly cooked and unusually lean slab of pork belly the size of my hand with a generous shower of shitake mushroom, slivers of fermented garlic and broccolini tops. The wine selection is from Mr Riggs and Zonte's footsteps. We tried the Zonte's Dawn Patrol Pinot Noir, the suggested and very good food match, and the Montepulciano. Dessert couldn't be considered this time.... I wonder if they'd let me have dessert for morning tea one day?
