I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Follow the pink neon M and enter the 480 square metres industrial-chic warehouse space via King or Darby Street. MEET is modelled on a New York-style bar and serves up fire-grilled South American cuisine. Bespoke cocktails and a great range of wine and beer options enhance the experience.

The space is large but has an intimate feel and a vibrant atmosphere with plenty of seating options for couples and groups. The menu is perfect for sharing and uses seasonal goods from local producers and of course, is subject to change according to availability. Thursday through to Sunday their signature Churrasco experience at $59 a head is popular, but share plates are still available.

The friendly and attentive staff bring out the share plate dishes individually and at good intervals so as not to interrupt conversation. Some of the seating gets a great view into the sparkling clean open kitchen. The prawns were fresh and sweet with a crunchy charred shell and the smoked eggplant with charred pita was smooth and smoky.

The 500g "Little Joe" rib sirloin was unavailable but the pork substitute was tender and delicious and the charred cabbage was a great accompaniment. We also sampled the wagyu flaps which were rich, tasty and melt in the mouth tender.

Although quite full our second stomach kicked in order to sample the churros and MEET's take on a banana split using barbecued banana and vanilla gelato. These desserts were a great ending to the meal and were not overly sweet.
