He's the master of fried chicken behind the Belles Hot Chicken stable, and its signature pairing of southern-inspired bird and natural wine. Now Morgan McGlone is shifting focus from the deep fryer to the rotisserie with his latest creation, Sunday — a new bar and restaurant paying homage to the classic roast chicken.

Nostalgic flavours and traditional Sunday dinners are given a playful update at this Potts Point newcomer, resulting in a menu of inventive comfort food that's spiked with plenty of local, seasonal ingredients. A state-of-the-art French Rotisol rotisserie takes pride of place in the kitchen and free-range, hormone-free Bannockburn chickens headline the food offering.

Turquoise tiles and brass accents provide a bright, cheery backdrop to dishes like Creole-style chicken wings with burnt chilli aioli ($10/18), the panko-crumbed fish roll ($21), and a schnitzel burger ($17) piled high with coleslaw, cajun aioli and pickled jalapeños. A chip butty ($4.50) teams fries and a madras mayo on a soft milk bun, while local burrata ($18) is matched with heirloom tomatoes and aged sherry vinegar.

Options from the rotisserie might include a roasted cauliflower ($15 for half, $27 for whole) with sunflower seed pesto, or a classic roast chook ($23/39) with chips — to be backed by sides like the garlic and lemon thyme-roasted spuds ($9), plus a signature Sunday coleslaw ($9) finished with fennel and mint. Dessert features an exclusive collaboration with Rivareno Gelato, courtesy of an indulgent two-scoop ice cream sandwich ($14) laced with chocolate bourbon sauce.

Unlike the roast dinners of your childhood, Sunday's food offering comes backed by a creatively charged drinks lineup, starring four pre-batched cocktails from award-winning bartender Jenna Hemsworth (Restaurant Hubert, Bar 83). You can enjoy the negroni, Aperol spritz, margarita and cold drip martini either alongside a feed, or to take home. Meanwhile, Western Australia's Running with Thieves headlines the tap list, and you'll find a strong selection of Aussie-made natural wines rounding out the bar lineup.
