ACME

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - DELICIOUS.100 -

The Ital­ian-meets-Asian Aus­traliana cui­sine of Mitch Orr was founded in the realms of dude food, but there is a so­phis­ti­cated ma­tu­rity to the plates at ACME that’s re­ally quite im­pres­sive.

Jatz are served with whipped cod roe, and you can still get Orr’s spin on the Aussie devon and tomato sauce sand­wich – although here it’s LP’s Qual­ity Meats mor­tadella and a house-made tomato con­casse.

There are seven pas­tas to choose from, per­haps shoot for stroz­za­pretti with abalone and oyster mush­room, or veer closer to Asia with cold spaghetti, okra, se­same and ponzu.

An en­er­getic wine list by Ed Loveday, cool (loud) beats, af­fa­ble ser­vice and a se­ries of pri­vate nooks for a bois­ter­ous crowd make ACME one of the best nights out in Syd­ney.
