When visiting other cities it’s always handy to get a recommendation where to eat – and today we have just that. When in Hobart, be sure to include a visit to Ethos Eat Drink which opened in January this year – I was lucky enough to experience it last weekend!
Walking along Elizabeth St, it is easy to walk straight past the entrance. Housed within an old stable building that dates back to the early 19th century, entry is gained through the arched carriage way lit by old film drying reels, that leads to an open courtyard and then the restaurant. The charm of this place just begins here.
Salvaged and recycled materials used throughout the restaurant evokes a cosy, warm and relaxed atmosphere with a modern quirky twist. One wall is clad in hand sawn weatherboard dating back to the 1820’s, old drink bottles have been crafted into stunning chandeliers, and chemist bottles are re-used as vases, sugar and milk jugs.
Even Hobart’s first plumbed toilet is on display behind a glass screen.
The modern tapas style menu created by Iain Todd also aims to have a minimal impact upon the environment – it is full of local, organic and biodynamic produce, and served up on rustic plates and within old bottles (dessert).
