Steak & Jazz
(Click play on the video above to see the full experience.)
Anyone who likes live jazz and French food in Sydney, would have heard or been to Hubert. Not just a restaurant but an institution for a great time in Sydney’s CBD.
So I may be biased about Hubert as it’s my favourite French restaurant, but there’s something about it that never disappoints when I go, and this particular time we went to celebrate my sister’s birthday.
15 Bligh St, Sydney NSW 2000
Getting a table requires booking in advance and so we took what was available with an early 5 o’clock table for 3.
We sat down to enjoy a round of drinks while watching the live jazz band before our food arrived. We ordered a duck parfait with bread and Prime beef tartare to start. The parfait was very smooth, rich and indulgent and the beef tartare was excellent. A great mouth feel with a really nice dressing. I personally really like the beef tartare at Hubert and highly recommend you ordering it when you go.
For mains, we ordered the Bavette steak, Duck a l’orange and Murry Cod a La Hubert. The steak and duck was delicious but the Murry cod stood out for me that night. It has a great flaky texture and the flavour was a great balance of savoury, herby and tart.
Hubert is one of those restaurants I go to knowing exactly what I’ll get. Consistently great food, good service and casual, friendly cozy vibes. Getting a table isn’t the easiest but is worth it if you’re looking for a place to celebrate or a special date night.
Highly recommend trying it at least once if you’re in town.
