Bistro Dom is opening its doors to the lunchtime takeaway trade. The city restaurant will begin serving on-the-go eats through .dom cbd from July 15.
The semi-hidden, hole-in-the-wall eatery is located at the back of Bistro Dom on Halls Court. Newly appointed head chef Luke Southwood says the alleyway has always been “quite drab”. Until now. The .dom cbd team has injected colour into the city laneway with splashes of red and yellow inspired by the Mediterranean and Balearic Islands.
Setting .dom cbd apart is its dedication to traditional Spanish flavours with a focus on fresh, South Australian produce. Expect Spanish garlic prawns from the Spencer Gulf; an open steak sandwich with prime beef fillet on house-made sourdough; and fresh South Australian squid with sepia mayonnaise and lemon emulsion.
The standard of Bistro Dom will inform the new outlet. “Everything is freshly prepared and in keeping with the direction of good, honest, Mediterranean food,” Southwood explains. “Obviously Dom has a name for freshly made, high quality food, so we’re maintaining that standard but making it more accessible to someone who wants a quick 15–20 minute lunch.”
Occupying a space near the busy thoroughfare of Topham Mall and surrounding businesses, .dom cbd won’t have a shortage of hungry city workers. “There’s constantly people in this back alley,” Southwood says. “There’s probably 20,000 people within 500 metres who are looking for a lunch everyday.”
