The warm glow of a red lantern greets guests as they enter Saint Crispin, the usual white walls of the Smith Street restaurant now sporting a lick of crimson paint. A distinct hum of activity, and the delicious scent of Sichuan cuisine, emerges from the kitchen as expectant visitors await their first taste of this homey menu with a contemporary spin.

Watch as Matti Fallon, the current resident at the Broadsheet Kitchen, talks us through the opening of his Chinese takeaway-inspired restaurant.

Broadsheet Kitchen is now open at 300 Smith Street, Collingwood. Reserve your table here.
