Mission Restaurant & Bar, Glebe

Mission Restaurant & Bar, Glebe

Bottom Line: With the same name as one of our favorite foodie neighbourhoods in San Francisco, we had to try and out – and we weren’t disappointed!

Of course the restaurant wasn’t actually named after an area in San Francisco, it was named for the Sydney missionaries who first occupied the Gothic Revival-style church which, now since remodelled, Mission and the NG Art Gallery upstairs now occupy.McKay had surprised me with tickets to a show called Smoke and Mirrors that someone had recommended. It was a fun show, definitely weird, but entertaining for sure. Anyways…the show was at the Seymour Center near Glebe so we had to venture outside of Surry Hills (shock!) and find somewhere to eat after the show. We ended up at Mission, a cool little spot up a tiny, unassuming alley way with an art gallery above it. We enjoyed a lovely dinner after the show.

We started off with the Salt Cod and Potato Croquettes ($14).
