ELLE (Australia) - - Fiction -

It may seem like Syd­ney has been de­prived of good old-fash­ioned fun of late – but the city’s prayers to the good-time gods have been an­swered, with the ar­rival of Mr Liquor’s Dirty Ital­ian Disco. The restau­rant re­cently parked it­self in the drive­way of the bot­tleshop at Mas­cot’s Ten­nyson Ho­tel, where it’s set to stay un­til March as a joint ven­ture be­tween the Ten­nyson’s owner, Merivale, and chef duo Mike Eg­gert and Jemma White­man, who are known for their short-bu­toh-so-sweet stints at Pin­bone and 10 Wil­liam St. They’re promis­ing fuss-free, Amer­i­can-style Ital­ian – such as oven-baked br­uschetta, pasta and wood-roasted meats – with which you can en­joy a drink se­lected from one of the self-serve fridges. “We want it to feel like you’re at some­one’s garage house party, where you’re eat­ing amaz­ing food and lis­ten­ing to pump­ing tunes,” say Eg­gert and White­man. Word is they’re con­sid­er­ing karaoke, so it’s best not to give up on those prayers just yet.­nyson­ho­tel
