Owners of Parramatta restaurant and bar, La Cigale, had a dream: they wanted to create a venue that would evoke Beirut's spring, winter in Paris and summer in Sydney, and with their eclectic mix of design, drinks and dishes, they may just have achieved it. The restaurant menu is comprised mainly of Middle Eastern dishes (think pastries filled with feta cheese or stuffed baby eggplants), with occasional nods to French cuisine in the form of chicken Provencale and the rather chocolate-centric dessert menu. But what really sets La Cigale apart is the cigar menu, complete with tasting notes and prices to suit both dabblers and experts.
