Haven’t been? This is your last chance to get a taste of Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco.
For the last six-months, Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco has taken its diners on a unique pop-up culinary adventure – reinventing bottle shop expectations. In collaboration with the Merivale group, Mike Eggert and Jemma Whiteman, from the inventive Good Luck Pinbone, have showcased fusion Italian food with a touch of Aussie charm. Now, it’s almost time for Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco to pack ‘er up, boys.
The revered pop-up will officially shut its roller doors on Sunday 29th April, following a disco-charged, warehouse-style closing party.
Launching in October 2017, Mr Liquor’s playful and flavour-packed menu of bruschetta, pasta and wood-roasted meats quickly won the hearts and tastebuds of Sydney. Inspired by the red sauce joints of New York, Eggert and Whiteman’s signature twists and techniques have brought new life to simple, rustic dishes.
During their final weeks, Eggert and Whiteman plan on introducing new dishes to their classic trio repertoire of bread/pasta, cheese and meat. Think beef tongue with porcini and tomato as well as tuna crudo with radish and beetroot to start. This will follow bruschetta topped with ricotta, nectarine, tomato and basil plus pumpkin, lardo, pecorino and chill.
Pastas such as the fettucine with tomato butter or gnochetti with braised lamb and rosemary will also sit alongside grilled meats like porchetta with roasted pineapple and 1kg rib eye with mustard and parmesan. The duo has also been experimenting with different pasta shapes, with the successful results making their way onto a ‘secret’ menu for those that know to ask.
To send-off the pop-up with a disco-charged bang, Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco is also hosting an epic closing party! Kicking off on Sunday 29th April from 1pm – 6pm, the event will feature party-snacks like porchetta rolls and chicken wings, wine tastings, roving cocktails and DJs all afternoon. You know where you’ll find us.
