OK Im so excited about the re-furb of The Norfolk that I just wanted to post quickly so you guys can get a ‘hot off the press’ vibe on it before its overrun by…well…the people that overrun and ruin all new restaurants/bars in Sydney.
Fact #1: refurb and new vibe is the brainchild of recent superstars of the-dirty-old-pub-turned-super-cool tribe, James of The Flinders and James of Ruby L’otel.
Fact #2: Awesome outdoor lounge (Im not calling it a beer garden because it deserves to be so much more)
Fact #3: the menu runs the gamut from BBQ Sweet Corn mex style to ridiculously delicious soft shell tacos to Deep Fried Pickles and Hot Dog Sliders
The whole vibe of the place is Americana which is of course the motif du jour for the smart young hipster. Food is tasty, honest and crazy cheap. Drinks are amusing and smartly matched to the general atmos of the joint. Try the signature Folks Sippin Pimms Jug or anything involving tequila if youre up for one of those kinda nights.
Thats it for the quick post – Ill add more later!
