Maitre Karl, my favourite bistro in Sydney, not least because it sits across the road from where I worked, has just been awarded the 2010 Metropolitan European Restaurant of the Year by the Restaurant & Catering Association.
To celebrate, a good colleague and myself had lunch there today for Melbourne Cup, enjoying a glass a bubbly and chocolate on the house, as well as my favourite dish: Choucroute de la Mer, and MR had the pork knuckle, another signature dish of Maitre Karl!
BTW, I am planning a vertical review of "Choucroute de la Mer" later on, so stay tuned...
The place was packed, and Karl had a very big smile on his face: Well done, mate and keep up the good work!
