There is nothing more exciting than the announcement of a brand new Sydney pop-up restaurant, so have your forks at the ready.
Setting up shop on Liverpool Street in Darlinghurst, Classico Moderno is reinventing what it means to dine like an Italian, and we are pretty damn excited about it. This pop-up project by local chef Bryan Gerlini is bringing the recipes his mamma used to make to Sydney stomachs, and adding a tasty modern twist.
Prepare to feast on flavours from as far as the Apennine Mountains, all the way through to the Italian coastline. The menu has all the usual suspects from pasta, meat, and fresh seafood, all perfectly paired with regional fruits and vegetables, Save some room for Gerlini’s signature dish of cotechino and lentil sliders, followed by his long list of both sweet and savory desserts.
There’s two distinct 6-course menus for you to wrap your laughing gear around and each has a different inspiration. Emilia (the land), Romagna (the coast), and for the vegetarians, Pianura (the valley) caters to all tastes. Setting you back $65pp, you can tailor it to you own tastes, and it wouldn’t be a degustation without matching wines, of which there are plenty.
Classico Moderno is open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday through to Saturday.
Speaking of pop-ups, this one is a cracker as well.
