The rogue fellows of Paddington’s The Rogue Rennard have bent to the wishes of patrons for ‘more’. If, like me, your idea of a perfect late-night dining experience is confit trout, liver parfait and other decadent offerings, then get yourself to Latrobe Terrace on a Thursday – Saturday night.

Lucky for you, you European aficionados with your taste for the rich offerings of our French cousins, you’ll be pleased to know that the kitchen stays open until 10.30.

The afternoon menu provides offerings of fromage and charcuterie. From there, the menu moves to the evening, with hors d’oeuvres including tartufo salami with sourdough and mustard, Kangaroo Island oysters and a dish comprising cauliflower, anchovies and sage, to name a few. For those with more appetite you’ll find lamb shoulder served with pomme puree and pork belly served with parsnip, honey and Valdeon cheese.

It’s always wise to wash such food down with a glass of fine wine. Lucky the Rogue Rennard crew have considered this fact and supplied a concise but thoughtful wine list, comprising mainly Australian drops, with the odd New Zealand and European drop for good measure.

In summary, the words of the elusive RR himself: “Tapas, drinks and dinners Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There. I’ve said it.”
