Blue Plate Bar & Grill
Think of this place as the
Of Mice and Men version of the modern chef's tasting menu - replete with Prohibition-era cocktails - and everything will flow smoothly from then on. The 'blue plate' emerged in US diners during and after the Depression as a budget-friendly chef's special of whatever was around. Now, this modern-day incarnation pays homage to the diversity of American cuisine through the iconic dishes of the 1930s. Blue Plate represents the second venture from Leo Brereton - the man behind the Creole, southern-fried South Restaurant around the corner - in his never-ending crusade to show people Down Under that American food is more than chilli dogs and foot-long hoagies. But not everything at Blue Plate mirrors the harsh authenticity of the Midwest train rider's diner. The oyster bar, ornate chandeliers and extensive wine list may not pass a historical recreationist's inspection, but none of the actual diners are complaining. The food itself is where the authenticity really kicks in, with New England chowder and tender, slow-cooked barbecue ribs proving indistinguishable from the real thing. A deep dish pizza that comes piping hot and overloaded with sauce brings the smell of Chicago to the table, and it is almost surprising to find no reference to the Bulls scorched into its crust. Top it all off with a slice of pumpkin pie and an americana (or negroni) at the bar to complete the star-spangled night out. Location/Address/Phone No./Fax No.
