The idyllic restaurant hidden amidst the greenery of Rochester Park serves up a new menu inspired by global flavors

If a trip to an isolated destination to escape the madness of city life is not on the horizon, a leisurely meal at The Greenhouse at Nosh is the next best thing. Located at Rochester Park, The Greenhouse at Nosh is a picturesque al fresco dining area on a foliage-enclosed verandah within a colonial black and white house.

The restaurant recently launched a menu that’s inspired by international flavors that succeeds on delivering delicious dishes without fusion confusion. The simple starters shine brightest here, such as the Thyme Ricotta that’s lusciously blended with a tart lemon confit, while the accompanying crostini is the perfect crispy vessel to enjoy it on. Meanwhile, the crispy Soft Shell Crab tiptoes around familiar flavor territory with a spicy red coconut curry sauce, popped wild rice and sambal coconut flakes.

Also notable is the Pan Roasted Barramundi, which is locally sourced and boasts a sweet, succulent flavor, contrasting beautifully with the subtle saltiness of the crispy roasted skin. For more adventurous palates, the Lamb Shank Mechoui with sweet potato ragout and pearl couscous is Morocco on a plate — spicy, smokey, sweet, and heady.

This temporary getaway won’t be complete without a tipple or two, so bring on the tropical feel with the new cocktails options. The Lanai is a twist on the classic Mai Tai, served with house-infused apricot and vanilla rum, homemade pistachio orgeat and fresh lime, while the No. 9 is a refreshing fruity mix of muddled blueberries and pineapple, bourbon, rye, port, and black tea syrup.
