Restaurant Review – Quarter Twenty One

I’m a big fan of Justin North’s restaurants Becasse and Etch, so I was keen to try out his latest, Quarter Twenty One.

While you wouldn’t normally associate a Westfield with fine dining, Quarter Twenty One is situated on level 5 in the recently relaunched Westfield Pitt Street in Sydney, and sits alongside the relocated Becasse.

As a meat lover, I was excited from the moment we walked in – hanging in a display cabinet in the door is a massive display of ribs, that although slightly macabre, is a welcome entrance for hungry foodies.

Inside, it’s comfortable, and not overdone with tables – just enough to make the room feel full, but not so much that you have to strain to have a conversation when it’s full.

The menu is impressive, with a range of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes that make you want to order one of everything. I stared with an amazing beef tartare, with quail eggs and mustard, which was just awesome, before moving on to an amazing pork belly (pork being on of North’s specialities) with white asparagus and foam.

Mains consisted of Riverina lamb, with peas, mint & balsamic, and followed up by a visually spectacular creme brulee with peanut brittle and coffee sorbet – a fantastic ending to the meal (although I was sure to also sample the souflee one of my fellow diners had ordered).

The wine list is extensive, with a great selection of both local and imported labels.

All in all, Quarter Twenty One is a fantastic feed that warrants multiple visits to try every part of the menu you can. After having eaten at both Becasse and Etch I had high expectation, which was met and exceeded. Highly recommended.
