PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Word is out about this fab funky-looking noshery. At the start of O'Connell Street, it is aptly named O'hotel. It lives on the ground floor of Adelaide's most coveted apartment complex: Place on Brougham. Formerly the site of the historical Hotel Adelaide, its in-house eatery is in the hands of another icon of our hospitality industry, hotelier Joe Oberdan. He has wisely put O'hotel's kitchen under the care of experienced chef Damien Wein. These two go back far enough for Joe to know that Damien will deliver the sophistication of food suited to this locale. Within O'hotel you will spy those who reside upstairs, movers and shakers from nearby radio and television stations, well-heeled shoppers and anyone hip to where classy meals in cool surrounds are served. Meet at the chic cocktail bar for a Japanese slipper, mai tai or Manhattan…get the picture? Continue into the intimate dining room where red retro lighting warms two rows of tables and their comfortable banquette seats. A discreet kitchen window allows the chef to keep an eye on proceedings; he communicates his passion for food intelligently onto plates and in conversation with guests.

With a vision of classic grill and seafood dishes, fresh Australian produce is prioritised. The seafood consomme or linguini marinara may incorporate coral trout from far north Queeensland or wild barramundi from the Northern Territory, both of which can be savoured as fish mains. Pan-seared scallops trounce the entrees on a grilled portabella mushroom, with parmesan, lemon zest, sea salt and deep-fried leek. From the grill an eye fillet is presented with Morton Bay bug, prawns and sauced with a red wine glaze (yes, it is called surf and turf). Desserts tempt with Cointreau-soaked seasonal berries with rich vanilla ice-cream, as do O'hotel's leisurely weekend breakfasts served on sidewalk tables.
