Two new eateries in Hobart from acclaimed chef Iain Todd are well worth a visit by food lovers on their next visit to the Tasmanian capital.
The 2011 national finalist for Elextrolux Young Restaurateur operates two distinctive establishments in Hobart – the Battery Point Steakhouse and Ethos Eat Drink.
At the Battery Point Steakhouse, an upscale dining establishment located on the premises of Todd’s previous Piccalilly venue, the chargrilled dry-aged beef is sourced locally from providers that adhere to ethical farming practices.
The grass-fed beef is paired with high-quality local ingredients and all organic waste is composted on the site to provide fertiliser for the organic garden.
Meanwhile, Ethos, which has a capacity of 70 diners, is Todd’s newest venture and is a brilliant place to grab a bit of tapas if you are out and about in Hobart’s CBD – although you’ll also find a number of excellent breakfast options and takeaway coffees to sample if you have to be out and about in the morning.
Located at 100 Elizabeth St in one of the city’s most historic buildings, Ethos offers a varied small-plate menu in the evening, which has been designed to share. You’ll find a wide selection of wines are available by the glass – catering to many different tastes and matched to the creative menu options.
