After 10 years on Enmore Road, much loved diner Hartsyard closed its doors in June 2022. Owners Jarrod Walsh and Dorothy “Dot” Lee said in a statement that while Covid was challenging, they’d found their “place and voice within the inner-west community and hospitality industry” after taking over from original owners Gregory Llewellyn and Naomi Hart in 2018 and steering the restaurant for the next four years.

While under Llewellyn and Hart the diner was famed for its fried chicken (even spawning a spin-off fried-chicken diner, Wish Bone, which has now closed), Walsh – who was already head chef under Llewellyn – and front-of-house gun Lee took a different tack, turning out an elegant menu of produce-forward dishes spiked with Asian ingredients.
