Surry Hills has a new kid on the block with Butter bringing fried chicken, bubbly, old-school urban beats and fresh kicks to our fair city.
The hybrid sneaker bar and eatery, yeah that is officially a thing, is the brainchild of the team behind Glebe Point Road’s Thievery and will be the answer to hipster dreams everywhere, with their party in the front window display of 70 hand-picked kicks and their business in the back offering of crispy fried chicken and flashy champas.
Behind the grill is 2015 Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year, Julian Cincotta (ex-Nomad, Rockpool) dishing up a rotating American-Asian inspired menu complete with mild to spicy levels of fried chicken, from naked, OG, Fire and HOT AF, crispy chicken sandwiches served in sneaker boxes and butter-inspired soft-serve ice-cream, we’re talking buttery croissant, burnt butter and chocolate peanut butter cup. We’re on our way.
