Kirribilli has had an upsurge in activity with the addition of Street Market, Anvil Coffee Co., Batch Burgers & Espresso and The Botanist. Fitzroy Food Co. added its casual dining flare to the mix when it opened in January.

Previously a Thai restaurant, the space has been refitted with a new look, with plenty of greenery and an array of geometric pendant lights spread across two levels. Chef Glynn Pedlar is a partner in the business along with Emine Sahin and John Culina, who Pedlar previously teamed up with for Olivo on Blue in McMahons Point. Dishes include oven-baked olives and hand-rolled grissini; braised lentil with crispy black pudding; hand-cut fettuccine meatballs; and whole baby snapper.

Large plates are designed for sharing and include paella with all the trimmings; whole confit duck with twice-cooked potatoes; or a whole rack of ribs with homemade smoky barbeque sauce. The restaurant also has a neat list of pizzas (including four cheese, Peking duck, or funghi with truffle). The baccello (served until 5pm) is house-made wood-fired bread, baked on the stone of the pizza oven and stuffed with ham and pulled pork; house smoked salmon; or chicken schnitzel.
