Last month we announced a brand-new project: Broadsheet Restaurant. The idea? Create a venue to celebrate our city’s cafe, restaurant and bar culture with the people who do it best. We’re extremely excited to unveil the details.

During October and November Broadsheet Restaurant will open on Danks Street, Waterloo from Thursday to Sunday, 8am to midnight. An all-day eatery serving breakfast through to dinner and drinks, Broadsheet Restaurant takes inspiration from Sydney’s favourite cafes, bars and restaurants while bringing a new kind of venue to the city.

Some of Sydney’s best are working with us to create the menu.

Nomad. The Apollo. 10 William St. Edition Roasters. The Boathouse. Reuben Hills. Shenkin. Morris. Shuk Bondi. Porch and Parlour. Ora Manly. Boathouse. Dead Ringer. The Unicorn. Cho Cho San. Tapavino. Fratelli Paradiso. Coffee Kaizen. Pinbone. Republic Sandwiches. Kensington St Social. Hubert. Bodega. Short Stop Donuts. Good Times Soft Serve. Winnow Chocolate. An all-star team of chefs, lead by John Javier from Master Dining, will be in the kitchen.

Right across the city we’ve been in touch with venues we love and respect, and we couldn’t be more excited by their responses.

Bureaux Collective (which worked with Rene Redzepi on his Noma pop-up) is teaming up with Coffee Kaizen to deliver the coffee service. It will feature a host of Sydney roasters on a rotating menu (think Mecca, Reuben Hills, Artificer and more).

The boys from Bulletin Place will be behind the bar and will write a one-off cocktail list with World Class and Singelton. The city’s best bartenders will mix drinks served alongside Stella Artois and some favourite local beers. And there will be an Australian wine list put together by Samantha Payne of Nomad Wine, so the Broadsheet Restaurant will be a place for a drink as much as it will be for dinner, coffee, lunch or breakfast.

The collaborative approach doesn’t stop with the menu or the drinks. Our interior fit-out is a collaboration with Relative + Foolscap Studio, who also worked on the NOMA pop-up. Design is by The Company You Keep, and we’re working to ensure every element of the project, from the furniture to the music (programmed by FBi Radio), represents the best of Sydney.

It’s a line-up we’re thrilled to provide a platform for.

Broadsheet Restaurant will take over the space that was Devon on Danks (it’s moving to a new site in Barangaroo) and will run for eight weeks across October and November.

In coming weeks we’ll announce some special events and one-off, ticketed chef dinners, so stay tuned.

Broadsheet Restaurant will take bookings and walk-ins.

The countdown begins.
