Osteria di Russo & Russo, Enmore -- or -- The meaningful interpretation of Italian food

In which Detective Chow enjoys books and wine, records and fine foods. Note that the plates below are servings for 2 people: the Ultra Bene (6 course) option, where chef picks from the menu based on what's good that day.

Some really interesting flavour combinations and beautiful presentation. That thyme semifreddo was a surprise hit. And the rabbit and the beef were rich and warming. Don't let the photos fool you, though -- it's actually a fairly low-light environment. But a lovely option for your more upmarket dinners, with great service and a lively atmosphere. Russo & Russo straddles fine and casual dining, with marble tables, large glasses, candles and 'fancy' food presentation, but also books & records, hearty dishes, and a reasonable price tag ($65 per head).

  1. Wow, does look like very good value. The trattoria comes into the 21st century, via Enmore!

  2. What a lovely excuse to abandon the office!

  3. Love the presentation of the dishes, good style.
