In an already saturated stretch of Smith Street, this well executed little bar and kitchen somehow manages to slot in somewhere between many other venues in the neighbourhood, and has quickly finding its own place.
Directly across from the Grace Darling, Smith Street’s forever bustling pub, Huxtable is a relaxed and cosy, in comparison, especially on weekend nights. A lo-fi Cumulus meets a hi-fi Rosamond, the menu revolves around small or large share dishes, and one can sit facing the kitchen and the chefs at work.
As some of the small share dishes can be a tiny (even moreso than their $4-$5 price tag belies) advice might be to get half-full somewhere else before coming, as a few drinks and accompanying snacks here is definitely worth doing. So to, weekend brunch.
