Fix St James, Sydney

Fix St James has been opened since January 2007. The man behind this wonderful restaurant is Stuart Knox (head sommelier and owner) and Sam Bennett as Chef and serves diners a combination of Italian, Mediterranean and Modern Australian food. Fix St James is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (Open from Monday to Saturday now), and this was another place that my bus would drive past and I would say to myself ‘I want to try that restaurant!’

I was catching up with an old colleague, S, for lunch, and suggested this place. It’s quite a slick venue, very business-y and very suit-y. Menu vast and wine list even more. If you can’t decide what to have you can always have ‘Feed me Fix’ – where they will pick out the menu for you.

It is always hard to have a five course menu for lunch, especially if you have to go back to work, so we opted for just main. Started with the complimentary focaccia, a little cheesy and topped with herbs.

I couldn’t go past the esk valley suckling pig with lentils ($34).

Tender, slightly pink and melt in your mouth pork with a slither of crackle, oh how I have missed crackle! Perfect, crunchy crackle (a little on the thin side, but still wonderful!) served with lentils was exactly what I needed. Perfect, winter comfort food.

S on the other hand opted for whole flounder with mussels served in a tomato broth ($34). I didn’t have any of this, but it certainly look fabulous and S no doubt demolished this.

Unfortunately neither of us had dessert – we were both full but I wouldn’t hesitate to come back and they their ‘Feed Me Fix!’ menu – 5 dishes to share for $49 per person or 6 dishes to share $59 per person. Service wonderful and warm and I look forward to coming to dinner again soon.

    You sure have/had a great bus route! I love catching buses as it’s such a great way to see new places to try. Love the idea of just having the restaurant choose the meal for you too – I can never make up my mind.

    OMG! Melt in your mouth pork with crackle sounds awesomely perfect! What’s even better is that Fix St James is only 2 mins walk from where I work and I’ve never ever been here lol. Guess I’ll be making plans next week to visit this place.
