Food Society - Darlinghurst

Food Society, a bar and restaurant is located on Riley Street in Sydney's Darlinghurst. An unassuming facade conceals a hidden gem which reminds us of visiting Nan's house. A fun welcoming 1950's vibe fills the space, complete with gorgeous florals, lace and mismatched cups and saucers. We instantly feel relaxed as we settled in for their award-winning vodka high tea.

We started with a delicious vodka cocktail, Watermelon Caiprioska -  topped with wild watermelon iced tea and watermelon ice-cubes. Divine.

The savoury and sweet high tea tiers  soon followed, along with the option to continue with a vodka selection or down the path of warming fragrant teas. We chose the latter as it was cool outside and seemed fitting.

Each morsel was fresh and flavoursome, the teas were equally delicious and service was attentive.

Food Society's seasonally changing menu of Modern Eastern European offers modern twists on Polish, Czech, Bulgarian and Balkan Cuisine in the cooler months, and inspiration from the Adriatic in summer. Small and larger plate options make up the menu, with meals designed to share. There are some good paleo and primal friendly dishes as well as house-made gluten-free bread option.

My girlfriend and I found ourselves lingering at Food Society long after we finished. We were still nursing our delicious fragrant tea, sure. But also relishing in the fun, relaxed vintage vibe, along with other cool customers. 

A great place to relax and enjoy some great food and drinks with friends,family or even a date.
