Bentley Group’s Monopole has officially made the move from Sydney’s Potts Point to the CBD.
The 70-seat venue from Chef Brent Savage and Sommelier Nick Hildebrandt is now located at 20 Curtin Place and is operating as a bistro by day and wine bar by night.
Hildebrant says the team are looking forward to getting back to Monopole’s roots, with guests encouraged to drop in for a glass of wine and some snacks.
“This is a big part of Monopole’s identity, which we look forward to introducing in the CBD,” he says.
Savage has designed a menu that covers classic dishes with a riff.
Guests can sample everything from crisp potato with smoked sour cream and salmon roe to steak frites, parmesan and caramelised onion gougères and salad niçoise.
Other highlights include pappardelle with peas, green garlic and pangrattato; steamed snapper with leek, capers, butter and chervil and Merguez sausage with roasted fennel and harissa.
Monopole’s wine list has also been refreshed, with French and Australian wines taking pride of place alongside up-and-coming producers.
From Wednesday to Friday, half-price snacks, $20 carafes and $12 cocktails will be available during happy hour.
The venue is open for lunch Wednesday to Friday and dinner Tuesday to Saturday, with the bar offering drinks and snacks between services.
