French restaurant in Sydney Bistrot Gavroche

The verdict

Internationally acclaimed chef, Frederic Colin is bringing all the French flare of his Singapore institution to Sydney with Bistrot Gavroche. Calling Chippendale home, the French bistro will form part of one of Kensington Street’s oldest warehouses, The Old Rum Store, which is set to become a new culinary haven in Sydney.

Pieces of furniture and fixtures have been imported all the way from Europe to adorn the space, giving Bistrot Gavroche a true European feel, with the pièce de résistance being an unmissable three metre oak entrance from Brasserie George, one of Lyon's oldest and most famous brasseries.

On the food side of things, you can expect dishes with a bit of Parisian flair including Grandpa Henri's pork terrine (inspired by chef Federic's grandfather), bone marrow on toasted sourdough with confit garlic (yes), and steak frites (double yes). Paired with a number of French and Australian wines on offer, dining at Bistrot Gavroche will be like dining in Paris (but without the airfare and jetlag).
