Shorties Bar & Dining, Lane Cove

Shorties has upped the bar ante in downtown Lane Cove.   With an experienced small bar crew behind it, the locals have breathed a sigh of relief.  Come for a drink and a snack, or settle in at a booth for a meal.   It has the pre-requisite small bar features – moody lighting, exposed brick, and cocktail names the bar man came up with while sampling too many.

So I gave their refreshing Nice Melons a whirl, though they are more than happy to mix up a classic if that’s what your after.  The staff were friendly and welcoming.shorties (10)

The menu has a good mix of dishes

We started with the kingfish ceviche, simply done and lovely quality fish

I also really enjoyed the scallops

And I find it hard to go past a beef tartare

The pork cheek was flavoursome but the octopus on the chewy side

And the buttermilk fried chicken wings were juicy and tender, but unfortunately a little bland, they needed a little something to give them an edge

Banana is not my thing but the girls rated the banana parfait with Nutella mousse

The second desert, which I think was a mango ice cream and a cream, just blended, it really needed some texture and some separation to distinguish the components

But for a venue just recently opened, they are ticking a lot of boxes.  Welcome to Lane Cove!
