First Thursdays are for rocking out!

And that’s just how we kicked off September, thanks to The ROCK Design Quarter First Thursday experience. It’s no secret that we love to wine and dine (ahem, just look at these pages!), so when The ROCK Design Quarter invited us to its September First Thursday, we were game, of course! And now we’re officially sold … who wouldn’t want to kick off the month by sitting back with a glass of something delicious in a beautiful setting with live music by local performers? Yep, it’s a totally desirable evening … and here it is in a nutshell: As Matthew Gold got the evening started, so did we, with a tasty cocktail – there’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned bourbon with bitters, lime and orange zest! The vibe? Relaxed. The seating? Plenty of choice … we opted to sit outside where all the action was at this contemporary-designed casual dining spot. And the food? Moreish! The Mediterranean-inspired meals combine traditional and new combinations to excite your taste buds. You can order just about anything from the diverse menu, from something a little lighter – like the beef trinchado cooked in a scrumptious red wine sauce – or share a pizza with your mates. But the ribs are a serious drawcard. We tucked into some succulent pork cage ribs with sweet potato fries. And. They. Were. DE-LISH-OUS! Nothing like a good wine to complement your meal … the wine list is extensive (there are a whopping 12 Sauvignon Blancs alone!). As we sat back sipping, the night rocked on with The Kiffness taking centre stage and we thought … we’ll be back next month for sure! (And we highly recommend you go too.) Diarise October 3 from 7pm. Afro Caribbean Project will entertain. Details: The ROCK Diner Facebook page
