Go­ing bush

Scot­tish chef Jock Zon­frillo (pic­tured above) is de­ter­mined to bring na­tive Aus­tralian ingredients to a broader au­di­ence at BISTRO BLACKWOOD, lo­cated be­neath his fine diner, Restaurant Orana, on Ade­laide’s Run­dle Street. “We are giv­ing the clas­sic bistro an Aus­tralian ac­cent,” says Zon­frillo. “It’s not your typ­i­cal French or Ital­ian bistro be­cause it em­braces In­dige­nous Aus­tralian ingredients.The menu shares Orana’s DNA but at an ap­proach­able, ev­ery­day price.” Dishes are sub­ver­sions of bistro clas­sics, like rib-eye with pressed eu­ca­lyp­tus pota­toes; there’s also an ar­ray of veg­e­tar­ian dishes and a kids’ menu. bistrob­lack­

Ola Chula!

From Nicole Gal­loway and Peter Lew, with kitchen tal­ent di­rect from Mex­ico City, CHULA, in Sydney’s King’s Cross, will be­come a big sis­ter to CBD tequi­le­ria and eatery, Bar­rio Cel­lar. “Over the past six years we’ve been in­spired through our trav­els to the dif­fer­ent re­gions of Mex­ico, work­ing with like-minded chefs, restau­ra­teurs and pro­duc­ers,” says Gal­loway. “[Mex­ico has] a very spe­cial cul­ture and cuisine so we wanted to cre­ate a menu that cel­e­brates the rich tra­di­tions and flavours, while treat­ing it with a con­tem­po­rary hand. Sim­ple food that’s se­ri­ously flavour­ful and vis­ual.”
