Stellini BarJuly 24, 2011
My Latin-literate dining companion ironically went with the Caesar salad, which he reported favourably on, commenting that the bacon ratio was “spot on”. Having had many terrible Caesar salads in the past (why oh why do some places dice the eggs and put it into the dressing??), I tend to steer clear of them, but knowing that Stellini does a good version is comforting. Nicely poached eggs, I noticed.
I had the Caprese salad with buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil. I love this salad, the tang of the tomato always goes so well with the aromatic basil and creamy mozzarella. This mozzarella in particular was very creamy, the creamiest I’ve ever had, I’d say, but the tomatoes were lovely and tangy so were the perfect foil to the cheese. Plenty of salt and pepper, which is what this salad needs, being so simple, and I quite enjoyed the variety of large and cherry tomatoes.

“Do you have a car?”
“Of course I have a card!”
“Ugh…”Here’s hoping the renovations are finished, because I did enjoy Stellini bar, I felt they used good produce and did simple Italian dishes very well. If you’re down the Paris end of Collins Street and looking for a bite to eat, I’d recommend it.
