Miss Morag can't recall the last time she set foot in the hotel but it bears no resemblance to the Hilton of old. Vintaged Bar and Grill is a slick contemporary space - black hardwood floors, clean lines and chic yet comfortable furnishings.
MM went along to sample the $20 luncheon and discovered quite a few pleasant little surprises along the way.
The generous serve of slow-cooked ribs are as tender as can be, the potato smooth and creamy. They're not trying to reinvent the wheel - these are simple, tried and true combinations that will appeal to diners wanting a casual, satisfying lunch.
An impressive wine room forms the heart of the restaurant, housing more than 1000 bottles, and guests are invited to pop into the wine room to sample a drop or two before selecting a bottle. It's also the parking spot for a rather tempting cheese trolley.We sat at the accompanying wine table, with its enticing inbuilt ice well forming the centrepiece.
What about you dear readers? Do you have any favourite spots in the city that offer respite from the crowds?
