I was disappointed to find recently that Palinka on Brunswick St has closed. I really enjoyed the food on my first visit, but was ambivalent on my second as the quality had already slipped. A subsequent fundamental shift in the menu away from huge mains to tapas style small share plates indicated that the original menu wasn’t working, but it seemed to make no difference.
It’s a shame as I thought this place offered something different on Brunswick St and might succeed, but it lasted less than a year. A Mexican place offering implausibly expensive tacos seems to be squatting in the venue.
