FOOD is fashion . FASHION is food . a VICTIM of fashionable food*

"One of the most tickling, dear, mischievous pleasures of this life 
is to laugh in one's sleeve - to sit snug in a corner 
unnoticed and unknown and hear the wise men of Gotham, 
pronounce from the style of our work..."

Before Batman became the grim avenger of Gotham City,
there was Washington Irving- who coined “Gotham” as a pseudonym for NYC.
However, instead of being a small bar down a dark alley with a secret password…
Gotham opens up to the heart of Sydney! It was the perfect location for drinks with close friends on a gloomy Saturday night. Canapes were arranged on generous share plates embodying a fusion of Japanese, Italian and Spanish influences.

Peking Duck Pancakes
Roasted and glazed duck breast, shallots, cucumber, Chinese pancake and hosin sauce

New York pork belly salad
Nashi pear Waldorf salad topped with thinly slice honey and soy glazed pork belly

Barbequed extra large Queensland King Prawns
Served with gremolata- grated orange and lemon zest, garlic and parsley

Sushi Bombs 
“Japanese” risotto topped with salmon, tuna and kingfish 

Zucchini Flowers
Fried zucchini flowers filled with scallop and prawn mousse with pea paint

To finish a beautiful evening at Gotham and what would be the start of another eventful Saturday night: Champayne and tequila shots!*
