Delicious lunch at the hole in a wall, boutique Italian restaurant at 10 William on the eponymous William St in Paddington, Sydney today. 10 William is a Sydney institution which is well known for favourites such as pretzels with bottarga cheese dip and it’s tiramisu.
With leather banquettes, tiny tables and stools, 10 William combines style with an all organic, very expensive wine list and a short but spot on menu featuring fresh and interesting produce.
Excellent for lunch after shopping at the Saturday Paddington markets or the trendy boutiques in William St itself.
We started by sharing delicious globe artichoke deep fried Roman style and served with the most tangy delicious bagna cauda (garlic and anchovy sauce) and creamy ricotta and bitter green Fritto parcels with a sprinkling of chilli on top.
The parpadelle with broccoli and Jerusalem artichoke was a hit with its sprinkling of crunchy breadcrumbs as was the nettle cavatelli with light lamb ragu and chickpeas in a light divine flavoured broth.
All the wine is natural and our Gentle Folk Schist Sauvignon Blanc was rich and flavourful complimenting the food well. Check out their website for latest menu and wine list.http://10williamst.com.au
Unfortunately no room for dessert but word on the street is that the flan with vermouth caramel sauce is divine!
We’ll be back for more from talented Chef Trish Greentree and the friendly waitstaff.
