Classico Moderno is an Italian pop-up restaurant currently located in Darlinghurst, set up by Italian chef Bryan Gerlini. You may know that name in connection with Darlinghurst’s most loved pop-up restaurant to date – Cafe Paci. Apparently he did a stint there! However, don’t expect the food to be anything like Cafe Paci’s. It’s an Italian restaurant and well, everything about it is very…Italian.
Broadsheet Restaurant – here for a good time, not a long time!
Everyone was a bit sad when Kitchen by Mike closed its doors some months ago – casual dining wouldn’t quite be the same again without that roast pumpkin and pork belly that you could see with your greedy eyes before they plonked a healthy serving on your plate. There was something amazing about Mike McEnearney’s eatery in Rosebery, a very specific combination of cafeteria-style service, an open kitchen where you could see all your food being made, a deli and that massive warehouse space where you could sit wherever you wanted. Luckily for us, Mike hasn’t completely left the Sydney dining scene and recently opened in his new digs, No. 1 Bent Street.
Quick disclaimer about the photos – sorry they’re such bad quality! I forgot my camera but CK kindly allowed me to use hers, but you know how it is, different camera and all…
I’m probably the only food blogger who hasn’t been to all the cool new restaurants in Kensington Street and Spice Alley…it’s always been a little daunting for me – if I go, I will want to eat at all the places all at once and obviously that’s not possible. So maybe just don’t go. Until I was luckily invited to Bar Chinois a few weeks back to try their food and drinks, finally I was able to go with a particular purpose, but also see everything that’s been happening over there.
It’s not every day that you get invited to eat at a restaurant that has been endorsed by the first female Thai Prime Minister herself!
Pork Cotoletta with slaw, garlic aioli, lemon and sea salt ($27)
It’s new and slightly novel still for DS and I to meet each other in the city, after work, for dinner. This time we checked out Bowery Lane.
Pulled Pork Poutine – with melted cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce (HK$98)
Throwback to a few months ago, when I was in Hong Kong
for a self curated eating fest to visit family and hang out with friends. Common Room had been on my list of places to try for a while now, so one evening S. and I decided to get all dressed up in heels (LKF is just a stone’s throw away from the restaurant, I guess) and head out to dinner.
