Well, folks, after successfully stuffing ourselves with a more than worthy degustation last weekend... it's time (now that the digestion has settled) to nominate for our September Feasting (to be held on Friday 26th September, 2008).

Nominations finish by Tuesday/Wednesday... then voting, then the waiting.

I'll kick off the nominations... or should it be nyominations?... with:

Taste Of Brasil, Brazillian Churrascaria, Leichhardt.

[Edited: Correct restaurant name]

With many thanks to missdissent for her reviews and the links :)

So, now it's time to vote :)

Remember, that this month is a Degustation month - and as such the prices are more expensive than normal. Approx 10 dishes (an overall view of the Restaurant/Chefs specialities) at about $80-$100 per head (more if you select the matched wines experience).

Judging on the last few degustations we have had in the last 2 years, I can heartily recommend them. (Also, as a rule, all meals are paid up at the time of ordering, with all extra alcohol paid at the time of ordering - it just keeps the post-meal Bistro-Mathics to a minimum of headache.)

OK, folks, here are the nominations - please note that one nomination does NOT have it's degustation on a Friday or Saturday night, but I include it for completeness.

Poll #1239815 Degustation Feasting for August

Where do you wish to feast?

0(0.0%)
Azuma - Chifley Tower - CBD - (Review Here)
1(20.0%)
The Ocean Room - Overseas Passenger Terminal - Circular Quay - (Review Here)
4(80.0%)
Deep Blue Bistro - Coogee Beach - *NO Friday or Saturday Degustations* - (Review Here)
0(0.0%)


Dining is on Friday evening, 29th August. So, please have a look and vote ASAP - as these sell out very quickly - and I want to book by the end of the weekend if at all possible.
