Fish ‘n’ chips come with a Ja­panese twist – and a side or­der of funky de­sign thanks to Matiya Marovic´ of SANS-ARC STU­DIO’S clever fit-out – at Small­fry, restau­ra­teurs Jack Lim and Nick Wang’s pocket rocket restau­rant on Ade­laide’s Way­mouth Street.The menu in­cludes tra­di­tional bat­tered fish, as well as panko crumbed oys­ters, a karaage chicken burger, sashimi and Ja­panese rice as a side. face­book.com/small­fry­seafood

Stan­ton & Co.

With New York’s Meat­pack­ing District as in­spi­ra­tion, PAR­LOUR GROUP are set to open Stan­ton & Co., a 300-seat bar and restau­rant that will join the ros­ter at THE CAN­NERY in the Syd­ney sub­urb of Rose­bery from Oc­to­ber. Chef Re­gan Por­te­ous (pic­tured top, far right) will over­see a mod-Aus­tralian menu with Ja­panese in­flu­ences.

An­nam Restau­rant Bar

PHO NOM chef Jerry Mai brings her unique take on the food of Viet­nam to the heart of the city with the open­ing of An­nam (a name for Viet­nam used prior to 1945) on Lit­tle Bourke Street in Mel­bourne.The 100-seat eatery fea­tures an open kitchen with a char­coal grill to in­fil­trate the menu, which draws on her Viet­namese and Cam­bo­dian her­itage. It’s ex­pected to open by late Au­gust.

Lolo and Lola

Filipino food has been get­ting a bit of at­ten­tion of late as a cui­sine wor th watch­ing, so the open­ing of Lolo and Lola in Wat­son, Can­berra, is of note. Own­ers Kim Cu­dia, Jay Pri­eto and Cristina Uy have grad­u­ated from sell­ing their en­say­madas – tra­di­tional sweet buns topped with but­ter cream and ched­dar cheese – from a mar­ket stall to a ship­ping con­tainer and now to a fully fledged restau­rant, with a ro­tat­ing menu of share plates. loloand­lola.com.au
