Chef Stanley Wong has had an enviable culinary career working in several applauded restaurants worldwide including the famed Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong and opening Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Spice Market in New York City as Executive Chef.
He is flanked by Head Chef Angie Ford (Navarra, Ottawa) and Restaurant Manager Ivan Gasparini (Marco Pierre Grill, Dubai) who have both previously helmed the team at Porterhouse by Laris, an upscale steakhouse in Hong Kong. Together they’re a formidable team heading up one of the newest restaurants in Sydney.
Chef Stanley, Chef Angie and the team are always on the hunt for the best components for their dishes, a quest that has brought them to explore farms like Steven Adey’s Darling Mills, north of Sydney, where they could discover foraged greens and other elusive produce. In their own words –
Procuring ingredients is one of the cornerstones for Eastside Kitchen’s cuisine, always being curious and experimental, sometimes whimsical, we constantly transcend the boundaries of dining. Our menu is influenced by our travels and combined working experiences. Curating the menu with modern cooking techniques, we provide an urban and relaxed dining experience that is meant to be shared in a convivial surrounding. We hope you relish the results of our food philosophy!
The restaurant evokes the atmosphere of New York’s meatpacking district, delivering a menu touched by the distinctive flavour of the traditional Japanese Binchotan charcoal grill.
Dark, sexy and theatrical, the restaurant features a leather paneled-bar with bronze back bar display. A custom brass light fixture, a runway of herringbone flooring and an assortment of steel and leather chairs, marrying the existing raw structure of this 100 year old building with the classic elements of a New York grill.
Eastside Kitchen + Bar is a short walk from Central Station in the heart of the Chippendale creative precinct at The Old Rum Store, 2-10 Kensington Street Chippendale. Kensington Street is directly opposite the University of Technology (UTS) on Broadway.
