SquareMeal Review of
The Kitty Hawk
Bucking the trend for concept restaurants that do one thing well, this ‘department store of dining’ in the City attempts to offer everything diners could possibly want, all under one roof: There's an all-day bar and kitchen, a smart grill restaurant for wining and dining, a swish cocktail cubby, and an early-morning coffee shop and patisserie that doubles as a wine bar in the evenings. There are plenty of private-dining options too, with interiors throughout treated to Russell Sage Studio’s gilt-edged industrial look, providing visual cohesion for the two-floor venue’s eclectic offering. Quality sourcing informs the menus, whether you’re after a (locally roasted, Fairtrade) cup of joe, a slap-up steak dinner, or a stiff drink built from artisanal spirits. Yes, it can get cacophonous when it’s full, but if variety spices up your life, Kitty Hawk is a safe bet.
