The Beresford Hotel, Surry Hills

"They have burger's here..I have been here before, I have had them - seen them with my own two eyes and even blogged about it..my blog does not lie"

"Where then show me on this menu where the burger is Gianna..where??"

Its a Beautiful Sunday afternoon at Surry Hills on 12th of September. For myself and my dearest and most fabulous friend - The Boss Lady, this is the day that is very special to us - our Birthday! We met during High School when we both worked the cash registers at out local Target Ashfield. Because of our love for Food, Music and above all else - Disney Movies, we have been inseparable since. Because we share the same birthdate, and were born in the exact same year we've discovered we have this magical mind connection thing.. (ESP-n) especially when it comes to food. In this particular case I knew she was looking for the Wagyu burger on the menu - but alas, the burger was off the menu. Thanks Justin Hemmes, what did that burger ever do to you? They were so good..
So yes, whats a Birthday afternoon without a few Birthday Bevvies for the Boss Lady - Its become tradition for us to spend and celebrate our birthday together. They have a great wine selection which is reasonably priced at 8-10 dollars a glass and also a pretty good cocktail list. We tried some of the share cocktails which were served in a caraffe and all the ladies seemed to enjoy that. They do an exceptional cocktail at the Beresford, even the humble pimms and lemonade was spruced up and served with Orange and strawberry slices. The cocktail list changes regularly of course, but the prices are a few dollars cheaper than their CBD cousins.
The Beresford has been re-developed into a more casual and informal Italian style trattoria. The dining area is a mix of regular tables, low leather lounges as well as an outside area which of course get a little rowdier in the evening. It gets very crowded here at night, especially in the beer garden but lucky on this pretty spring day, we got free reign over some leather lounger over looking the beer garden. 
Calamari Fritti with Rocket, Aoli and Lemon $18
As for their light menu, we have already established that the wagyu burger has dissapeared however the Calamari Fritti is always a winner. Its batter ever so lightly and the aoli dressing is pretty "lick and remaining drop off the plate" addictive. There are four pizza's on the lunch menu and both are $17-$19 dollars each. We try the Margharita - tomato, mozarella and basil and the peperoni, orgegano and olive pizza. It's woodfired pizza..at its finest, at a pub. The serves aren't large at all and I would have no difficulty in eating one plate on my own - especially with the thin and crispy base. 
This is why I love the boss lady - my birthday card. 
I scope the table and see a few friends have ordered some delicious looking and tasting dishes - there was a substantial looking cured meat platter...mmmm salsicce and the warm mushroon salad with pecorino and traviso also looked delish. Not your average pub grub I say! The fries with sea salt were also a hit, I think all fries everywhere should be served shoe-string..slathered in aoli - but thats my dream.
Another year older, hopefully wiser! This tiramisu was delicious! A birthday not a complete without it. Thank you for another year together Boss Lady and for sharing your special day, love you like a fat kid loves birthday cake!

Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
