Chippendale's Barzaari is hosting an eastern Mediterranean brunch with bottomless spritzes every weekend.
March 05, 2019
You'd think Sydney had reached peak boozy brunch, but, in our opinion, there's always room for one more — especially when bottomless spritzes are involved. Kensington Street newcomer, Barzaari Chippendale has just joined the brunch game, launching a new eastern Mediterranean menu available from 10.30am every Saturday and Sunday.
Created by Chef Darryl Martin, the dishes incorporate flavours from the cuisines of Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. You'll start with haloumi-spiked baked eggs and a mezze plate, then move on to your choice of whole rainbow trout with chermoula or spatchcock cooked in vine leaves with salsa and toum (garlic sauce). Want both? You can. The menu is served family-style, so round up your friends and order it all.
The mains will also arrive with falafel and heirloom tomatoes and butternut pumpkin with zaalouk (a Moroccan salad of tomato and eggplant). And then, as expected, you'll receive Barzaari's famed baklava for dessert.
All of this will set you back $75 — and that includes two whole hours of bottomless spritzes. You can choose from four different boozy, carbonated beverages, including the Strawberry Royal (rose water and freeze-dried strawberry), the Jerusalem Lemonade (gin, orange blossom and lemon) and the Bitter Apricot (brandy, Campari and apricot purée). If 120 minutes of endless spritzes doesn't quite hit the spot, you can add a third hour for $30 a head.
Reservations are recommended and can be made via the website.
