One of the finest addition to the crowded High Street Pheonix is Sarah Todd's The Wine Rack.

For the uninitiated, Sarah Todd is a model who turned chef and got trained at the world's best cullinary college, Le Cordon Bleu. She was pinned as the favorite to win MasterChef Australia Season 6.

We were excited to see what magic she had created at The Wine Rack and definitely came out from the place with big smiles and satisfied souls.

The best part of the place is that it's all about food and drinks. None of the fancy jazz or molecular gastronomy. No smoking dishes of drinks. Just great food presented beautifully in the classic way.

Our Recommendations
Goat Cheese Churros
Crispy Tofu and Enoki Mushrooms
Spinach and Goat Cheese Pastilla
Pavlova with Chocolate Mousse
Iced Nougat.

We started our mean with the Karari Roti. It was the Wine Racks version of the Crispy Roomali roti that is quite popular in many place. But the different here was that the Karari Roti was super thin and very light. You could actually eat a whole Karari Roti without feeling a thing. Loved it.

Next, was the Goat Cheese Churros. Served with truffle cream and chilli dip, these were definitely the softest savory churros we have ever had. The trulffle cream dip was definitely our favorite from the two dips.

Next up was the Enoki Mushrooms. Served with lots of crispy Tofu on the top, the mushrooms were stir fried with holy basil. Definitely one of the picks of the night.

Sarah Todd's version of Indian Street food, namely the North Indian Kulcha, was a little mixed. We loved one of the kulchas, the Zucchini Kulcha with goat cheese, pesto and pine nuts. The other Kulcha with sun-dried tomatoes, bocconcini and srirachi hummus was okayish.

Moving to the main course, we had the pizza and the pastilla. The pizza need a lot said about it. None of the thin crust , thick crust nonsense. Just authentic pizza the way they make it in Napoli. The base was truly wonderful and we were told that Wine Rack imports the dough from Italy. Our Pizza was an half and half. One side had the Mushroom and Thyme with balsamic glaze and the other side had chargrilled veggies with pesto, goat cheese, ricotta and lemon zest.
Loved both the toppings.

The spinach and goat cheese pastilla was another wonderful dish. Served with dehtdrated carrots and edible flowers, it crust was light , fluffy and crispy. Quite heavy though, as we were unable to finish it.

No meal is ever complete without some desserts.

We had the Pavlova with chocolate mousse and the Iced Nougats. Has a tough time deciding which one was more brilliant than the other.

Overall this is one classy place. Amazing food. And even though we don't have alcohol, we could see the amazing range of wines and other spirits that this place has. Well the name is Wine Rack so it had to be obvious :)

Visit this place for a refreshingly wonderful experience.

Beautiful ambience great vibes and delicious food.
Make sure to make a reservation if you planning to visit this place on weekends.
I was very excited to check this place out since it was by Sarah Todd. I’m a fan of her food from Goa restaurant.
This place is specially for wine drinkers, they have a whole rack of wines (as the name goes) from various different regions of the world.
I started off with a good bottle of red wine with the famous cheese platter. Then was intrigued by Sarah Todd’s take on Indian street food menu so tried the sun dried tomato kulcha, crumbled bacconcini, siracha hummus which was super delicious and in non veg tried soft shell crab pakora which was very very tiny potion.
Did not try the main course but their pizza looked good.
Ended the meal with chocolate chili mousse which was super delicious and perfect end.
Although the staff was very unaware about what’s on the menu or what to recommend or even if asked to explain a particular dish.
They were taking time to place the orders because of going back and forth in the kitchen to ask and confirm about the dishes.

Amongst the pubs.. bars ...restaurants in Phoenix... this is a standout place with its very bright lit not to be missed signs. The place has a very rustic charm to it and gives a feeling is divided into sections each having its own different feel. You have a place just at the entrance... with a view to the mall crowd flowing by.. and then the bar well stocked for those who want to njoy at the counter... and the last a dark place with very less lighting sit and dine... not many seating.. book in advance if you want to be assured of a place... they were courteous to even keep our bookings as we were stuck in traffic. Got a place at the sit and dine... at first seemed too dark but as the night progressed didn't seem to be an issue at all.. although reading the menu is a bit of a struggle in these dark places but that's anyway taken care of by the staff who can help you and suggest the best... well stocked with a huge varieties of wine, wine lovers will njoy the place for its unique ..Wine Trail menu wherein 3 different types of wine are served depending on the trail selected. Gives you - different wines to relish and helps make our choice for the one if you prefer to bottle out. Food lot of options for veg and non-veg... tried the famous dried tomatoes kulcha... wow that was out of the world, very unique and really tasty, the pizzas were well prepared and so we're the other dishes we savored. The service was prompt even though it was a Friday. As the night goes the music starts getting really loud, so in a lighter note... finish your conversations early... later you will have to scream ... or just njoy the lovely music dished out and take in the night with your drinks...

Lovely place and a must for wine lovers and more so for all those want to try Sarah's curated menu.
