The crew behind Sydney’s iconic rustic dining precinct are setting up shop within the heritage-listed Eveleigh Works and it’s safe to say this will be a massive gamechanger.
Having mustered up a heap of speciality events recently including its Aladdin-inspired marketplace and a neon-drenched dessert laneway (not to mention The Grounds of The City),
The Grounds of Alexandria team is now expanding to Redfern’s 19th Century Locomotive workshop.
The mega restaurant is slated to be called The Grounds Roastery and will don a mezzanine level, an espresso and brew bar and a mammoth piece de resistance coffee roastery. Decking out the interior will be Acme & Co (the design brains behind Drake Eatery and The Grounds’ baker, cafe, Potting Shed and city outpost) with spaces inspired by European courtyards and North Africa Villas.
The 200-seat mega restaurant is set to open in late 2020 so watch this space for updates.
And here's the lowdown on Sydney's pipeline Pokemon bar.
