The lush InterContinental Sydney Double Bay has already proven itself as a bit of destination for the eastern suburbs, attracting much more than just hotel guests with their winning trio of restaurant Stockroom, classy bar Stillery, and that famed rooftop bar. Oh and then there’s Sake and the newly opened Mr G’s to keep things moving along nicely. There’s plenty of forward-thinking at all these venues, the latest of which is trying to make “Linner” a thing.

And it should be a thing. “Linner” has been touted as “the new brunch” over in the U.S for some time now, filling that awkward gap between lunch and dinner with a perfectly valid excuse to tuck into something a bit more sophisticated than a mid-afternoon sandwich. The late lunch, early dinner has made it’s way to the Stillery menu, making way for new dishes by Executive Chef Alex Vilches.

It’s a bit less expensive than waiting for dinner too. The menu offers two courses plus a glass of wine for $55pp, or just plain a la carte with your choice of dishes like Chicken Liver Paté with Archie Rose raisins and kohlrabi, Leek Risotto with Holy Goat’s cheese and sorrel, and Half Citrus Gin Chicken with sweet potatoes and crispy kale.
