The Bishop

The aim of this blog was to have brunch, come home and immediately write. That may have been a one off aim, we shall see. When I left the Bishop on Saturday the aim was just that. Unfortunately I came home, wrote 2 lines of text, threw on a load of washing and went to bed at 6pm. I had a Eurovision Party I was to attend at 5.15 am and the brunch certainly helped me to get to bed early.

Bishop Sessa (as it was formerly known) has been a long time favorite of mine. I used to take clients there for thank you lunches/dinners. The degustation was amazing, not only for the excellent food but for the delicious matching wines. At the end of the day much like the bottomless brunch, I would know exactly how much my meal would cost including booze.

Recently in an attempt to up my steps I walked past on a Friday. The special was 2 for one drinks (bargain!) and aperativo which is something I had recently experienced in Italy. Free food with drinks. Whilst there I imparted my love of the bottomless brunch and next minute this is what I saw.

Bishops Bottomless Boozy Brunch (you’ve got to love the alliteration)

I was there! I grabbed my friend Rohan, booked in advance and off we popped!

Brunch Menu

Not liking beer or red wine (don’t judge, it makes me sleepy!) I tried the sparkling rosé, the Pinot Grigio and the rosé all of which were delicious. In the end I stuck to the Pinot Grigio.

Smoked trout, fennel, avocado and celeriac remoulade
Picking all the way through brunch this charcuterie platter didn’t disappoint
Artichokes, poached eggs and hollandaise

The food, as always at The Bishop was spectacular and so were the delicious wines.

Pint Grigio – a clear favorite for me
I do love my sweets

In the end we each bought another drink (after the 2 hour mark) and finished off with a Tawny Port (totally worth the extra $$) I left The Bishop happy and smiling as I meandered my way back home to Surry Hills.
