The diversity of Mister D's clientele confirms the forward-thinking fare served in this sleek, modern eatery with open kitchen, cafe vibe and rock "n"roll attitude. Chef owner named the bistro after "Dancing with Mister D", a song on the Rolling Stones album Goat's Head Soup. He blends refined European technique with clever combinations, turning out dishes that, to quote another Stones tune, are "like a rainbow". The culinary playlist gets edgier with Mister D's warm doughnut served with three syringes filled with chocolate, jelly or custard. Inject into the doughnut and wait for the euphoria. One punk icon's degenerate lifestyle is another chef's inspiration it seems. In brief, this is casual dining cleverly delivered. We do apply a 12.5% surcharge on public holidays.
