Visit most decent art galleries across the world and as you empty out of the rooms, especially those of a special exhibition, you’ll find a gift shop, a cloak room, and a bad crowded café. Go to the top floor and you might find a decent restaurant, and in Sydney, most likely, a view.
So it proved when we went to “The Greats” at NSW Art Gallery. Canny punters book, so we had to make do with a communal table but this was no problem – The Varnished Culture‘s table talk is invariably PC when in public and everyone, especially nearby, seemed nice.
Service was a little arty but the champers arrived on time and the food was quirky (in a good way). P was even tempted to try a cool and refreshing salad with watermelon, fetta, mint, cucumber and no flesh.
