Not spending the Northern Hemisphere summer hopping all over Greece? Us neither, but Melburnians can spend the winter doing the next best thing — diving deep into a sumptuous Greek feast at the Ela Pop-Up.
After holding a month-long pop-up at Gertrude Street Enoteca earlier this year, Ella Mittas is heading to Fitzroy's Amarillo to whip up a storm of delicious Mediterranean traditional recipes once a month, drawing upon her time spent living, working and eating in Greece.
The first pop-up lunch will be held on Sunday, July 8, kicking off at midday. The long leisurely lunch will feature a lineup of tasty regional Greek meze and wine. Throw in a vibe influenced by the 1983 film Rembetiko, complete with a live soundtrack, and you'll think you're somewhere far away from Fitzroy.
The Ela Pop-Up will be held once a month, keep an eye on the website for dates. Bookings can be made through Amarillo's website.
