Scarlet drapes and fringed lamps cast a vibrant glow that exudes theatre the moment you step inside, creating an immersive dining experience. This full-service restaurant marks Jason Scott, Anton & Stefan Forte (Frankie’s Pizza, Baxter’s Inn and Shady Pines) and Dan Pepperell (10 William Street).
Hubert may only be four weeks old, but he feels as if he has always been here.
Restaurant Hubert is one of Sydney’s best spots for experiencing French cuisine. Situated two stories underground, you’ll feel as though you have entered an elegant Paris mansion as soon as you descend the stairs. Offering both cocktail bar service and table and booth seating for two diners. Their menu boasts classic French dishes like steak tartare with fries and chicken fricassee – perfect for date nights!
Chef Dan Pepperell has given some classic dishes a contemporary flair at his restaurant. You’ll find snails served with house XO sauce and duck parfait topped with maple syrup jelly; vegetarian options can also be found such as burgers and smoked salmon salad.
The chicken fricassee is an iconic dish that remains on menus worldwide. Thanks to pre-treatment, its tender meat becomes flavorful while remaining juicy; while its rich sauce features earthy mushroom and aniseed notes; with crisp potatoes providing a colorful contrast. Perfect for sharing between two.
The wine list at this restaurant is expansive. They offer wines from around the globe – such as Burgundy and Champagne. Their prices are fair, and staff are knowledgeable about their products – they even recommend drinks pairings!
Restaurant Hubert is the inaugural full-service restaurant from the team behind Sydney’s Shady Pines Saloon, Frankie’s Pizza, and Baxter Inn (now closed). Established by Jason Scott, Anton Forte and Stefan Forte of Swillhouse Group as well as Dan Pepperell from 10 William Street – its opening has created something of a grownup version of Baz Luhrman sets!
Small details make this space truly exceptional, from its low-lit wooden stairs to the expansive bottle displays in an ante chamber. The dining hall itself boasts tables suitable for large groups as well as intimate booths for two, not to mention a stage and small band for live jazz music performances.
At this venue in Sydney, expect to spend quite a lot of money – but the experience will certainly justify its expense. Few places can match its stylish and atmospheric vibe; anyone who appreciates great food and wine should visit. Be it celebrating Tinder dates or just sipping Burgundy alone, this venue provides the ideal opportunity for both.
Hubert’s wine list is truly splendid; an in-depth selection of classic and character wines carefully curated by general manager Andy Tyson is presented over 51 pages for easy browsing – you will discover everything from lean Pierre-Yves Colin Morey aligots to fragrant minerally 2014 Domaine de L’Ecu Muscadet Cuvee Culinary wines!
The Dining Room is an exuberant display of color, opulence and whimsicality; from its scarlet drapes, fringed lamps casting their rosy glow, revolving fans overhead, endless bottles of wine on display to Jason Scott clutching his leather-bound wine list to soft live jazz music like Johnny Mathis, Jerry Vale or even early Sinatra playing in the background – you could expect any moment to find yourself here!
Restaurant Hubert marks Swillhouse Group’s foray into fine dining; other venues owned by them include Shady Pines Saloon, Baxter Inn and Frankie’s Pizza by the Slice. Its interior transports guests back to postwar Paris; an atmospheric smoke-filled music hall where Piaf wagged his handkerchief obediently with each beat of music played at its microphone. Restaurant Hubert lives up to every hyped-up superlative and deserves all its praise; guests who enjoyed it can even attend Mangums and Movies where four courses of food can be served alongside movie screenings of movie films shown during dinner at its theater counterpart – giving guests another unique dining experience!
