Basque Brunch

Surry Hills' Firedoor is opening up early on Sundays for a boozy Spanish brunch series.

Firedoor's owner and head chef Lennox Hastie is right in his element with this one. He's assembled a weekly Sunday brunch inspired by the region of Spain that first fuelled his love for cooking with fire: Basque Country.

Brunch will be served like pintxos: small snacks and finger foods from an arrangement of food platters. There'll be wood-baked eggs with chorizo, ash-baked potato tortilla, grilled peppers, jamón, roast meats, whole grilled fish, shellfish from the live tanks and wood-fired flan for dessert. You'll be able to order à la carte and from a chef's menu.

Drinks, also Basque-inspired, will include grilled tomato bloody marys, breakfast martinis, txakoli (slightly sparkling, Spanish wine) and vermouth. It's highly recommended you book for this — you can do this through the website.
