Church Street Enoteca, Richmond MELB

A few weeks prior to my trip, I wanted to tick off a few restaurants on my "to eat" list and one of them would be Church Street Enoteca. Listed in the Age Good Food Guide and known for serving good Italian fare, what more could I ask for?

Usually packed around dinner time, we were fortunate to secure a table despite a last minute reservation. I was impressed by our waiter's wine knowledge and recommendation - A+ for finding a wine that suits me well.

Gippsland aged grass fed eye fillet served with parsley, caper and shallot salad and confit garlic. Meat was prepared medium rare which, in my opinion, showcased the meat's tenderness and flavour pretty well. With a good cut of steak, not much else was needed to jazz up the plate.

Rabbit ~ unfortunately, I cannot recall the name of this dish of mine but would describe it as rabbit done thee ways :p Rabbit tortellini meets a rack of rabbit ribs and agnoletti? Meat was very succulent and was perfectly complimented by the assorted of ingredients used.

Kipfler potatoes, garlic and thyme ~ I love a good bowl of potatoes that has the right amount of crunch on the outside but still fluffy and fragrant on the inside. This one ticked all the right boxes for me:)

CSE tiramisu ~ torn between a tiramisu and panna cotta, I opted for the tiramisu, just because I like my desserts with a bit of alcohol infused into them. Not exactly your typical tiramisu, this one was a lot more subtle and probably a good one to opt for if you're after a light end to the meal.

One thing to note is that whilst food and service is excellent in this restaurant, it does come with a slightly hefty price tag attached. Good place to impress if that's the motive for the night:)
