Garagistes is a trendy restaurant in Murray street Hobart (though it bills itself as a wine bar). In fact, it is so trendy it doesn’t take bookings. If you want to dine at Gargistes, you need to get there early, or be prepared to wait. The staff will take your phone number and give you a call when they can fit you in, and in a clever marketing ploy will suggest you pop around to Sidecar, a bar owned by the same people, where you can have snacks and a beverage while you wait. Of course you don’t have to go to Sidecar, you can do whatever you please!
