The new winter menu went live at Crows Nest last week. As is usual at this time of year, desserts are proving popular among our diners. We think this spiced bread & butter pudding w/ golden sultanas & ginger ice cream is one of the reasons why. Take a look:

We thought our Crows Nest chef’s would be exhausted after launching the new menu, but they still had the time to come up with this delicious tuna special: Za’atar  spiced yellowfin tuna w/ winter vegetable salad & black garlic. It’s available this week only.

At Manly, our chefs don’t just get creative when preparing seafood, this week their creative flair extended to the garnish. This one has steamed potatoes, soft boiled egg, beans, olives, cherry tomatoes, and nicoise dressing – all you need to do is add fish!
