Have you been eating vicariously through your friends’ Instagram feeds lately? Y’know, the ones who have been holidaying through Europe and notifying you of every single bite along the way? We bet you have, but there’s no longer a need to be envious, with an even-better-than-the-real-thing Italian Street Kitchen set to hit Sydney’s Neutral Bay this October.
From the brains behind the delicious Enopizzeria comes this fresh Italian street fair idea that will have arancini-aficionados flocking to this new Sydney restaurant in hoards.
Sydney restaurateur Mauro Marcucci, owner of Baccomatto Osteria, has joined Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group to create an offering and menu that is designed to be shared among family and friends. The concept is that the fare will be organised into food stations throughout the venue, set to mimic a market on the cobblestone streets of Rome. Here you can expect a few house specialties–think wood-fired oven-baked pork or succulent spit roast cooked over a blazing open flame barbeque. There’ll also be a healthy spattering of tasty antipasti plates (we’ve been eying the fried and baked cheese and the meatballs) that will have even the fussiest eater wiping the drool off their chin.
The menu designed by Mauro will incorporate all the classics—wood fire pizza, freshly made pastas and all the tangy, flavoursome pasta sauces to tantalise your tastebuds with (#betterthanwhatyournonnamakes).
While the space will be designed to have a relaxed and casual feel with natural timbers, neutral colours and polished concrete flooring, we’re expecting a pulsating and energetic atmosphere coupled with an animated dining experience mirroring the flair of a seriously good Italian food fest.
So keep your eyes peeled and your pasta forks at the ready: Italian Street Kitchen is coming and it’s going to be goooood.
