Alfie’s, A New Steakhouse By The Bistecca Team Is Opening

Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 4 July 2023

With a new concept that promises to flip the traditional steakhouse model on its head.

Steak lovers, rejoice! Sydney is about to get their next steakhouse and brasserie, coming later this year. Liquid & Larder, the masterminds behind sensations like Bistecca, The Gidley, and The Rover, are about to reveal their latest eatery, Alfie’s, on Bligh Street. Alfie’s is delivering a fresh, innovative concept never seen before, with the aim of flipping the traditional steakhouse on its head. The new restaurant will bring a one-of-a-kind dining experience that offers value for money, without skimping on quality.

Whilst Bistecca is known for their T-bone and The Gidley is known for rib eye, the hero at Alfie’s will be Sirloin, using the same short loin used at Bistecca from the Riverine region of New South Wales. The motto at Alfie’s will highlight making delicious steak more accessible, from chopping block to plate. Unlike traditional steakhouses, you can sit down and order straight from the menu and expect your steak to be on the table in 15 minutes. The dining experience will be quick and smooth, perfect for those wanting a quick bite without compromising on quality. 

Following your meal, make your way to the bar with a menu curated by Liquid & Larder’s award-winning bartender and Group Bars Manager, Alex Gondzioulis (former Bartender of the Year and World Class Australian finalist 2023). The cocktails served are imaginative and world-class, serving what could easily be considered Sydney’s coldest martini, alongside a variety of seasonal cocktails, a curated wine list and a bar snack menu. The bar welcomes walk-ins without any reservations needed, looking out onto the hustle and bustle of Bligh Street. 

Within Alfie’s, Liquid & Larder will establish its central butchery and steak ageing facility, which will also supply meats to Bistecca and The Gidley. Over the coming months, the meat will undergo both wet and dry ageing processes, enhancing tenderness and flavour in preparation for the grand opening. This approach ensures a consistent supply of premium beef to all venues throughout the year. “After years of experience cooking over fire, we’re building a custom-made grill at Alfie’s to ensure the sirloin is served to perfection. We’re also very excited about having our own butchery on site so we are free to select, age and cook the product at its very best, all year round.” says Executive Chef, Pip Pratt.

Alfie’s is due to open in September. For more information, visit their website here.
