|Sitting at the bar at Stich, York Street, Sydney|
And just to make it that much more alluring, the kitchen serves burgers and hot dogs.
|Looking down at Stich from York Street|
It’s quite like something from a juice bar with the added sweetness of ginger beer and a little bit of naughtiness with the gin.
|Skinny Love cocktail|
More like potato shavings than fries, I wasn’t a fan of whatever kitchen gadget turned what should have been crunchy-outside and fluffy-inside potato into the occasional curl and broken bits of potato; much like those packet Smith’s French Fries.
But then again, others seemed to enjoy the super thin fries, which were served with a tangy salt seasoning as well as tomato sauce and honey mustard.
|BLT burger (fuzzy, I know...)|
The burger selection was quite the interesting one, without a chicken option but with beef, lamb and turkey, amongst others. The BLT burger was a beef pattie with bacon, lettuce and tomato – the pattie quite beefy and tasty if not a tad dry.

Stitch is a place one could easily sit for long drinking sessions - whether seated at the prime bar seats, or with a group at the booths, or indeed at one of the converted sewing machine tables (watch your knees), ideally sampling your way through the cocktail menu. Stitch offers an upscale small bar experience that looks to be the beginning of the next wave, I think, in no time.
Edit: Stitch is now one of the participating venues of Parched March, with their special drink being none other than the Skinny Love cocktail. See other venues and their Parched March drink here.
