The name might be straightforward, but this place gets its kicks from edgy, unorthodox thrills. Part of The Wapping Project, the restaurant occupies a former power station, complete with soaring ceilings, candles and a gallery housing uncompromising exhibitions and arty installations – not to mention a bookshop. Diners sit next to hulking hydraulic machinery and choose from a menu that stays with the unconventional programme. Daily offerings roam around Europe for the likes of baked figs with pancetta, Gorgonzola and walnut vinaigrette, sobrasada-stuffed partridge with butternut squash or char-grilled mackerel with artichokes, olives and salsa verde. After that, consider buttermilk and lavender pannacotta, chocolate fondue or Italian cheeses with Sardinian flatbread. The drinks list has also been planned with a passion, taking in keenly priced all-Aussie wines, fun cocktails and specialist teas.
