The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room - George Street, Sydney

One of the latest additions to the Sydney dining scene, The Morrison is a no-fuss New York style brasserie, conveniently located on George street in the CBD.

My first attempt at dining here was on a Wednesday night was met with a 45 minute waiting time, so the moral of the story is get in early or book! My second attempt on the Monday public holiday afternoon was much better, and we managed to nab a table straight away.

Tempting selection of food, and a great drinks menu too - I can see this becoming a firm favourite for Friday after-work drinks.

As we are had a late breakfast, we aim for an afternoon snack rather than a full lunch

Deliciously crispy duck fat chips

Served in an old school Cooks measuring cup

Chicken lollipops sounded like such a fun dish - Southern fried chicken, chilli and molasses dip. 

You can't really go wrong with fried chicken, and this is a joy to eat. Highly recommended! Though I have to admit, I dipped my chicken hesitantly into the sauce due to all that chilli. 

Crab toast - snow crab, creme fraiche, lemon zest and chive on dark rye

This dish was refreshing, and great to see that the crab serving is extremely generous. I had more than enough of the tasty crab filling to go with the rye.

Castro cocktail - Whiskey barrel smoked pineapple and a cannon shot of spiced run. A classic Caribbean escape

The Morrison - Our signature cocktail! Freshly juiced Granny Smith apples blended with white cane spirit for a taste explosion

This was so refreshing! Almost feels like you're biting into a tangy granny smith, rather than drinking a cocktail. 

Raspberry and lemon cheesecake (deconstructed)

This dessert was only so-so, especially when compared to the other food. I'll definitely just stick with drinks and savoury next time.

The Morrison ticks all the boxes, with fresh and great quality food and an extensive drinks menu - I'll be back to try the oysters!
