Introducing the Ethos Eat Drink & our New Menu Options
We are delighted to announce that we have opened our new bar in the gorgeous old 1830s chemists’ shop at 100 Elizabeth Street, right next to the Ethos Eat Drink restaurant – including a wonderful new fireplace designed and built by blacksmith superstar, Ben Beams.
The Bar offers a fabulous food and a range of spirits, beers and ciders and the entire Ethos wine list from 5.30pm until late. The emphasis, as always at Ethos, is on local artisan products – the more local and rarer the better. Expect to see the usual Tasmanian beverages and lots you may never have seen before.
New Daytime Offerings
The Ethos Bar will open 12-4pm, offering sandwiches (eat in or take away), bar snacks and sweet treats to complement coffee, tea or something from the bar. Perfect to eat and drink around the fire on a cold Winter day.
New Evening Offerings
Because we are Ethos and fresh, local, seasonal food is what we do. Opening the Bar has given us the opportunity to expand and refresh our evening menu offerings across the two venues:
- The Ethos Eat Drink now offers an ever-changing snack and a la carte menu such as house-made crisps, roasted almonds, cured olives pickles & ferments; and more substantial dishes like sashimi, Ortiz anchovies + lemon, and free-range pork rillettes + pickles.
- Ethos Eat Drink has returned to its ‘roots’ as the show-case for Iain’s renowned fresh-and-seasonal daily menu presented in a six-course (plus extras) feast for the senses and the palate for $95pp ($165 with matched wines)
In short, we invite you to let us feed you with a bespoke repast show-casing a range of the best produce of the day at Ethos; or build-your-own meal. All prepared by the same team, from the same produce and with the same amount of love.
Ethos Lunch 12pm – 4pm , Tuesday – Saturday
Ethos Eat Drink 5.30pm – late, Tuesday – Saturday
The Ethos difference
Each morning, owner and Executive Chef Iain Todd designs the day’s dishes using the fabulous local ingredients sourced that day from our artisan suppliers (you can read about our suppliers elsewhere on this site). Iain then works with his kitchen and service team cooking, growing, picking, tasting, talking and learning about every dish so that you, our diners, can share the story of the produce and its provenance. We believe food tastes so much better when you know the lengths taken to get it to your plate.
We offer a small but carefully-chosen wine list of featuring local, artisan and imported products. We also offer a wine match with the daily tasting menu – each day Iain and his staff taste each course and match a wine to its unique flavours and textures. Go for the match and Matt Kemp and his front-of-house team will present you with a small pour of wine before each course as they lovingly explain the provenance of the bottle and the reasons it pairs well with the dish.
We will do the rest. Whether dining a la carte or from the tasting menu, our dedicated team will take you through a meal that showcases the very best of the local, seasonal, small-batch produce that arrived at Ethos that morning.
