Maurice Terzini Has Opened His Latest Venture Snack Kitchen in Potts Point with His Son Sylvester
Snacky share plates, spritzes and wines are the name of the game at this new summer-ready father-son joint on Macleay Street.
January 12, 2024
One of Sydney's most successful restaurateurs, Maurice Terzini (Icebergs, Jacksons on George, Re) is back with a new casual restaurant and bar that's arrived on the streets of Potts Point. Snack Kitchen is the latest venue from the acclaimed hospo mainstay, now open in collaboration with his son Sylvester Terzini.
The Macleay Street opening promises to combine high-quality Italian cuisine with a fun, social atmosphere. 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.
Maurice Terzini said Snack Kitchen will deliver "a kitchen of simple ingredients but rich in flavour".
"After steering some big ships, I feel as if I'm going back to the start of my career with a simple concept — it's coming full circle."
What snacky plates of goodness can you expect exactly? Alongside your classics — olives, anchovies, prosciutto, crudo — there's mozzarella with chardonnay vinegar; mortadella paired with chilli oil; a braised bean, chickpea and ricotta combo; and polpetti with a fennel salad. Plus, you close out your experience with the perfect exclamation mark: an affogato.
Pair the lot with a drop from a refined wine menu or a European-style digestive. And for those who feel like getting into the summer spirit, there's a range of spritzes and cocktails on offer. The signature Snack Spritz is sure to be a hit, combining Select, gin, cherry, Italian tonic and a basil spray.
The father-son duo is also delivering a sense of family dining to the restaurant, with Snack Kitchen marking the first time they're leading a restaurant together.
"After all these years of working for my father and legendary small venues, such as Napier Quarter in Fitzroy, it's so exciting to bring this knowledge into Snack Kitchen," says Sylvester.
It's set to be a bustling hangout spot, bringing a more casual version of everything that Terzini is known and loved for to Sydney right when the mercury is really rising this summer.
Snack Kitchen is now open at 95 Macleay Street, Potts Point, operating 3pm–late Tuesday–Saturday. For general enquiries, head to the restaurant's website.
