Slated to open in January 2022, PELLEGRINO 2000 is a brand-new venue from the all-star team behind Bistrot 916—that’s Dan Pepperell, Mikey Clift, and Andy Tyson.
While the mood is new world Parisian at Bistrot 916, this time the trio will be wielding their combined creative flair for a neighbourhood restaurant inspired by the trattorias of Rome and Florence.
“The menu will consist of the Italian staples we love, handmade tortellini, pappardelle bolognese, fritto misto, and tripe in all shapes and sizes,” says Pepperell.
PELLEGRINO 2000 is picking up where Bar H left off, in a terrace on the corner of Campbell and Forster Streets in Surry Hills.
The ground floor will feature the main dining room, shelves stacked with anchovies and tomatoes, and a double-sided espresso bar. The basement level will ooze character with bottle-lined walls, white table cloths, and a candlelit thousand-bottle wine cellar too.
“The wine list will be a grand selection of the Italian classics, mostly old Barolo, old Chianti, and a few prized bottles of the greats like Soldera and Valentini,” says Tyson. “Cocktails will follow suit; a Harry’s Bar style bellini, caffe shakerato, negroni, and lovely little selection of amari.”
PELLEGRINO 2000 will open in January 2022.
