Bowery Lane, Sydney CBD

bowery (6)Somewhat hidden in the foyer of an office block, Bowery Lane was a welcome addition in 2014 to a part of the CBD which until recently was a little deficient in good casual dining options. The interior is an interfusion of textures – a little concrete, some wood, some leather, exposed bricks – and you can start to drown out the office block surrounds. bowery (3)

Like the venue, the menu is a bit of a mixture too – appropriate since Bowery Lane is named after a street in Manhattan, itself is a melding of cultures and cuisine. For instance there’s a little Italian (burrata, carpaccio); pure NY diner (Reuben on rye, fried pickle), and some Asia (salt and pepper squid, Asian slaw).

The burgers are very popular, in particular the New York cheeseburger with wagyu, bois bordran, Monterey jack, tomato, cos lettuce and onion, served with fries. Considering a lot of the new takeaway burger joints are selling burgers for $10 with $5-$6 for the fries, at $18 this is pretty good value for a sit down table service meal.bowery (5)

I also recommend the tempura soft shell crab burger with Asian slaw; it comes with a delicious miso mayonnaisebowery (4)

On their Summer menu I was fond of the duck confit salad with green beans and duck liver parfaitbowery (1)

The breakfast menu also offers plenty of tempting options. The hotcakes look good (next time) but I tried the poached eggs with smashed avocado, quinoa and feta which was nicely donebowery (2)

There is a little counter out the front for takeaway coffee and breakfast treats, and at the back of the restaurant, salads and hot food for takeaway lunchbowery (7)

For groups there are banquet menus for $55 and $65

    Handy little breakfast and lunch venue- I’ll take the soft shell crab. I have noticed, when dining out and in this post, that everyone seems to have these cute serving bowl things or plates that look handcrafted,Since you dine out fairly often Miss Napolitana, have you noticed this trend too. Is plain white dinnerware on the wane?

      I think it may well be. Lately I have seen some absolutely devine handmade plates and I do what you aren’t supposed to do and turn them over when no one is looking to figure out where they are from.
