La GiacondaBack in the sixties the Giaconda Cafe at 9 Denmark Street was where David Bowie met his first backing group, The Lower 3rd. Famous as the hangout of music legends Bowie, Boland & The Kinks, La Giaconda next to Tin Pan Alley, was relaunched in January 2014 by Australian chef Paul Merrony and his wife Tracey Petersen, who have also been involved in Flat White and Milk Bar for years. The old Giaconda style remains - serving honest food with a 'French-ish' flavour - but the restaurant is now housed in a smaller, 'secret' room behind the more casual cafe. An elegant dining space with a high ceiling made cosy with rugs and textiles, the restaurant serves a meat-heavy menu with choices including roast chicken, ham hock hash or grilled rack of lamb alongside more adventurous cuts like grilled calves liver or tripe braised with chorizo, smoked paprika and butter beans. In the cafe, with its red tiled bar, wooden floors and tables, things are more informal. Open for breakfast, lunch - when Paul's plat du jour is served along with favourites such as a Caesar salad and a croque monsieur - and supper, whatever is on the menu is cooked simply with good ingredients but without any pomp.
