If you want to try authentic Australian cuisine, you might as well get it right from the source. Aussie Michael Darby, owner of Oz Restaurant & Bar in Clarendon, brings his unique take on contemporary Australian fare with some exotic choices that you simply won’t find on other menus. Camel burgers and alligator sausage? Yep. Kangaroo skewers and emu wraps? Oz Restaurant & Bar has that too. But it’s not all exotic meats at Oz. The balance of the menu centers on small plates in a variety of different flavor profiles, like glazed pork belly with crisp napa slaw or the lighter scallop ceviche with orange and cilantro. Bring a crowd so that you can try as many small plates as possible, or better yet, enjoy the current dinner special of unlimited small plates for just $36. Add on $14 bottomless drinks, and before you know it, you’ll be brave enough to try the kangaroo or camel.
Oz Restaurant & Bar offers lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, along with weekly events like Yappy Hour, live music, and half off bottles on Winesday. Find this hip spot on Clarendon Boulevard at the corner of Garfield Street.
