sydney venues so new THEY HAVEN'T EVEN OPENED YET May 2013

As heard on Fbi Radio.

I may have been in Tassie for the past few months, but I ain't no slouch. The great news about Sydney's food scene is that despite all the doom and gloom of closures, new and shiny things are happening..and that's a great thing. Here are three places set to open in June/July 2013 you should keep an eye out for.

Miss Peaches 

First came Mary, now meet Miss Peaches. Set to bring a little southern hospitality to the inner west, Miss Peaches promises to offer up dirty south favourites like gumbo, catfish, shrimp and grits to the masses. The concept which will include well worn elements to the Sydney dining scene including vinyl, vintage and mason jars will open June 5 to punters and is situated on

Level 1, 201 Missenden Road, Newtown NSW 2042. Open Wednesday - Sunday from 5pm - Midnight

Brooklyn Hide

Tis true that in Australia, we largely have zero idea about bagels. Like, proper New Yawk-style bagels. All this is about to change if the guys from Brooklyn Hide have anything to say about it. Surry Hills' Commonwealth Street is soon to be home to a New York style deli, devoted to the virtues of this most sacred of boiled breads, set to open in June/July. And because bagels taste better with coffee, the crew from The Little Marionette will be supplying their tasty beans, to boot.

Golden Age Cinema and Bar  

Harking back to the golden age of cinema, when people kept it classy no matter how much booze or fuel they consumed, Golden Age Cinema is set to class up our little city with an old school cinema and bar that invokes the magic of old film, Hollywood sizzle and no doubt a healthy dose of classic styling. You'll find this little gem opening in the old Paramount Pictures building in early July and if it all sounds like too much of a dream for you - you can join the team by dropping them a line at Now how about that.
