the eathouse opens
306 Chalmers Street, Redfern
Not quite a bistro, not quite a cafe, Redfern's The Eathouse has finally opened, after months of peeking through the paper, covering the windows of this part rockabilly, part Mexican-styled diner, a joint partnership between friends stylist-to-the-stars Lenna Boord, tattooed goddess Selena Murray and multi talented cook slash designer Age Durrant.
Expect to find relaxed, comforting food with a twist, like grilled scallops with chimmichuri, southern-fried chicken with creamed corn and slaw, sandwich filling of-the-moment pulled pork and cult chef favourite Philly cheese steak rolls.
There's the be-muralled dining room for groups, but right now, this is one of the best places in Sydney to sit at the bar, sip Samuel's Gorge Tempranillo, have a chat with bar guy Toby, and enjoy a meal pour un - just make sure you get there early to secure your seat, The Eathouse takes no prisoners...or bookings.
