Russell's is fast becoming the "cooks alternative"--the venue where Adelaide's top chefs enjoy their night off. Housed in a slightly dilapidated old building furnished with second-hand shop oddments, Russell's offers a casual atmosphere, encouraging strangers to share tables and chat. Service is mostly do-it-yourself with lighting provided by candles. Try bread, olive oil and home-made dukkah to start, accompanied by salad, platters of goats cheese and olives. Follow this with crispy wood-fired Italian pizza or Turkish bread filled with tender, marinated lamb. To drink, try the red and white house wine or you can bring a favourite bottle of your own.
Friends and I have dined here numerous times and I must say it is one of the most fantastic dining experiences. Russells makes the best pizzas I have ever tasted. When dining here be sure to take your own beverages (there aren't any for sale) and go with a group of friends as it makes the experience better. The combinations of pizza toppings are excellent.
Russells is only open on Friday nights (sometimes Saturday if it's a very special occasion), so book well in advance. Winter is great with open fires burning outside.
