This long-anticipated opening is THE place to go to for stellar woodfired sourdough bread (check out their custom-made lava stone oven) and hearty dishes to accompany them. Start with the Firebake Bread Board ($10), which showcases the best of chef-owner Konstantino Blokbergen's made-from-scratch creations — rye, wholemeal, white and fruit — served with salted butter and olive oil on the side. Beef that up with lip-smacking plates like the super Smoked Eggplant ($15) and, what seems to be a house favourite, Norwegian Blue Mussels ($25). Slurp that all on their own, or mop it up with more bread. If you're dropping by before sunset on a lazy Sunday (as you should), dine alfresco and dive into the decadent 4-Spice Chicken Liver Paté ($12) as you soak in the relaxed vibes and warm hospitality. The restaurant is currently open for dinner, but plans for all-day dining in April are underway. Stay tuned.
Avg price: $40 per person
