Maurice Terzini teams up with his son Sylvester for a crowd-pleasing wine, aperitif and snack bar in Potts Point.
January 25, 2024
Located in the sunny corner space formerly occupied by Sunday, Snack Kitchen comes from one of Sydney's most successful restaurateurs, Maurice Terzini (Icebergs, Jacksons on George, Re), and his son Sylvester Terzini. The father-son joint is a simple yet elegant wine, snack and aperitif bar perfect for after-work drinks and cruisey weekend afternoons.
The relaxed Macleay Street spot combines top-quality Italian snacks with a fun, social atmosphere. If you're looking to pair some anchovies or a tomato and olive salad with a glass of orange wine or a Campari soda, this is the spot.
As the name suggests, the menu will focus on small plates, so you can order a bunch of things for the table and everyone can snack to their heart's content. Start with the lupini beans, tiny pickled morsels that serve a similar role to edamame at a Japanese joint.
From there, you can roll through some classic antipasti plates (olives, crudo del giorno, carpaccio) or opt for something colouring outside the lines a little. The serve of ham, gherkins and mustard manages to feel nostalgic and chic at the same time, and the ricotta topped with chilli and garlic is the perfect accompaniment to a side of bread.
As for what you'll be drinking, there's a to-the-point aperitif menu and plenty of great wines which the staff are happy to guide you through.
Housed in a simple white space with playful splashes of colour and a few adorable childhood artworks by Sylvester, the whole venue feels like a bustling family-run hotspot you'd find on the shores of Santorini, transported straight into the middle of Potts Point.
