Garagistes is a newly opened wine bar and restaurant serving very exciting food in Hobart. I was fortunate enough to dine there recently (and plan to go again this week!). The wine list is 46 pages long and includes carefully selected wines from all around the world. The food is based upon local fresh Tasmanian produce and brought together by head chef and part-owner Luke Burgess. Above shows the industrial style interior that has a very organic feel to it - partly from the large wooden tables but also from the gorgeous hand-made pottery plates and dishes that the food is served upon. It was formerly a garage. The conversion is great, I especially love the open kitchen (see bottom image).
We started with the salt cod fritters with celeriac leaf mayonnaise - I can't wait to have more of these. (Image from http://www.foodtourist.com/).
