Located in the centre of the historic inner-Sydney strip, The Paddington (formerly The Paddington Arms) will serve a rotisserie-led menu by Executive Chef Ben Greeno, cocktails by Palmer and Co.’s Sam Egerton and Toby Marshall and wine curated by the award-winning Franck Moreau and Adrian Filiuta.Justin Hemmes, Merivale CEO, said: “We are extremely excited to open in Paddington, I have very fond memories of what Oxford Street used to be and we are looking forward to bringing some of that magic back to such an iconic part of Sydney. Ben is an undeniable culinary talent, arguably one of the best in the world, and he is going to deliver something truly special at The Paddington”.Specially-imported, custom-made French rotisseries form the centrepiece of the pub. Think dishes such as lamb rump with red pepper and almonds; wagyu beef with artichokes, pickled mustard seeds and watercress; whole fish stuffed with olives, lemon and thyme; and of course, roast chicken with French fries.The rotisserie is accompanied by a delicious selection of small plates including octopus, potato, confit tomato and black olives; smoked trout with English muffin and duck egg; spelt, roast cabbage, kombu and prawns; and parmesan custard with sprouted pulses.Adrian Filiuta, winner of the 2015 Australian Ruinart Sommeliers Challenge, has collaborated with the revered Franck Moreau MS to create a fun yet classic wine list to complement the rotisserie and appeal to all tastes and budgets.The Paddington will also be home to an impressive cocktail bar, led by Sam Egerton and Toby Marshall, the talented team behind the award-wining Palmer & Co.The Paddington has been brought to life by a design team including Kelvin Ho and Emilie Delalande of Akin Creative, stylist Amanda Talbot and Justin and Bettina Hemmes. Designed as if it was an old local butcher, it boasts a relaxed, quintessential British charm with white glazed ceramic tiles, painted timber panelling and dark timber furniture.Upstairs the space becomes more intimate with booth seating, panelled walls, a leather-fronted cocktail bar and mirrored tables. The private dining room is surrounded by a floor-to-ceiling distressed landscape mural painted by local Sydney artist Desmond Sweeney.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img
