Set in one of Sydney’s emerging cultural hubs, Freddie Green’s delivers all-day Italian eats to Sydneysiders.
Green Square in Sydney’s inner south is an area attracting attention (and with good reason). The once-forgotten light industrial area has been given a second life with the launch of new restaurants, bars, stylish apartments as well as the launch of the stunning architectural Green Square Library. The latest addition to this emerging foodie hub is Freddie Green’s, the neighbourhood Italian eatery delivering a casual yet considered dining experience to locals and visitors alike.
Since swinging open its door in December 2019, Freddie Green’s has been delighting diners with a taste of traditional Italian cooking. The venue is led by Chef James Metcalfe, who was inspired to launch the venue after jetting abroad to central Italy to research and master authentic culinary techniques and traditional flavours. The result? Expect a casual and welcoming dining destination celebrating the best eats and drinks Italy has to offer.
Joining Metcalfe behind the pans is Head Chef Concetta Bille, bringing a wealth of experience from her recent roles at top Sydney venues Lotus, North Bondi Italian and as a key launch team member at Surry Hill’s favourite Mark & Vinny’s Spaghetti and Spritz. Bille’s Silician heritage and passion for food are poured in her cooking at Freddie Green’s, influencing signature menu items such as her cannoli with whipped vanilla ricotta and her delicious dark chocolate mascarpone.
In a nod to the restaurant’s location, the venue takes its name Frederick Green (the Lord Major of Alexandria in the 1930s and 1940s), an instrumental local figure who founded and fostered one of Sydney’s most progressive suburbs.
One menu at Freddie Green’s you’ll find everything from small plates and antipasti to classic pizzas, salads and flavourful side dishes. From oh-so-simple potato, rosemary and truffle emulsion pizzas to sides of crispy baby gem radicchio salads, you’ll want to come hungry to this spot. Can’t decide what to order?
