Head to Potts Point to experience the best of Middle Eastern flavours at Ezra, opening this September.
Middle Eastern dining is having a bit of a moment in Sydney. We’ve seen plenty of delicious Middle Eastern-inspired spots swing open their doors across the city, from the charcoal chicken joint Henriettas to Jimmy’s Falafel in the CBD and even the all-day-eatery Above Par in the CBD. And at this new inner city dining room expect the flavours of the Mediterranean and Mid East to collide.
Say hello to Ezra, the soon-to-open restaurant finding its home on the leafy streets of Potts Point. Just a quick stroll away from the hustle and bustle of Kings Cross, this new venue is the latest venture for seasoned hospitality talent Nick and Kirk Matthews-Bowden (ex-Bistro Rex) and Head Chef Ben Sears (ex-Paper Bird).
Ezra takes inspiration from the vibrant dining scene of Tel Aviv on Israel’s Mediterranean Coast, finding its home in a revived townhouse in the backstreets Potts Point. The menu brings together a diverse range of flavors spanning Ashkenazi, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Flavours, all infused with a uniquely Sydney touch.
This cosy bar-meets-restaurant brings the best of the vibrant food, architecture and nightlife of Tel Aviv to the heart of the inner city, delivering a punchy, curated menu of beers, spritz cocktails and plenty of natural vino on this menu. As for eats, expect starters of spiced olives, oysters and falafels along with delicious pita, roast cauliflower, charcoal-grilled chicken and so much more.
The best bit? Ezra’s converted terrace (given a fresh lick of paint by New York-based Aussie designer Rosie Rainbow), is kitted out with a rear and front courtyard gardens, perfect for alfresco dining. Plus you can nab a seat indoors too, with an open kitchen and counter bar seating available along their curved Bauhaus bar.
Ezra is slated to open on Friday, September 4th at 3 Kellet Street, Potts Point. At the moment, the venue is capped to 44 guests in line with COVID Safe guidelines (with the capacity to host 88 seats once restrictions ease). With limited capacity, bookings are highly recommended (with a small number of tables and counter spots available for walk-ins).
Ezra is currently open Tue to Fri from 5pm till late, Sat (12pm to 3.30pm and 5pm till late) and Sun (12pm to 3.30pm and 5pm to 9pm). To book your spot (max group size 10), visit Ezra’s website here.
