Glebe Point Diner

The danger of living in cosmopolitan Potts Point is that rarely do you feel the need to ever venture out. When you're surrounded by some of the best Thai, Italian and seafood restaurants, food stores, delis, wine merchants and farmers markets it takes something pretty exceptional to prise you away.
Last night that 'something exceptional' was the 50th birthday celebrations in Glebe of our dear friend George.
George has accompanied us on many of our eating adventures across the country and across the globe - and may there many more!
George's dos are always big drinking occasions so we fuelled up beforehand at the nearby Glebe Point Diner. This neighbourhood gem has style and quirk in equal doses. The staff could all be extras in a David Lynch film. But the real stars come out on the plates - dishes that explode with freshness and unexpected matchings. This is a good reason to leave Potts Point more regularly.
