Foveaux Restaurant and Bar is the creation of award winning Chef/Proprietor Darrell Felstead and combines a 45 seat restaurant with a cellar cocktail bar located amongst the fashion warehouses and creative agencies of Sydneyâ€™s Surry Hills.
Since its opening in April 2007, Foveaux has quickly developed a reputation as a venue that offers some of Sydneyâ€™s most creative dishes and drinks. The exposed brick of the original Schweppesâ€™ factory in the restaurant has an industrial feel that gives way to the intimacy of the sandstone cellar bar creating a setting that evokes Manhattan.
Voted Best New Restaurant in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide for 2008, Felstead says the philosophy for Foveaux is simple:
â€śWhether itâ€™s in the food on the plate or the drink in the glass, I want to give people a creative experience when they come to Foveaux. We use classic ingredients and combinations but try and give them a creative edge so that hopefully people are getting new experiences and flavours when they eat and drink with us. I want people to feel relaxed and enjoy themselves and so I have made Foveaux the place that I would want to come to.â€ť
At Foveaux you will find an eclectic mix of flavours and textures in our progressive Modern European menu. We focus on the unconventional, the unusual, forgoing trends and fads we lead the pack with creations that push your culinary boundaries.
There are artificial boundaries that constrict us and prevent us from discovering. Why is squid ink going with lamb and tofu? What is Tommy Roughie? At Foveaux we want to guide through a dining experience that you will never forget.
Step down off busy Foveaux Street and escape into a world of refined pleasures and culinary adventures.
Discover an intimate space, a room where time stops and the worries of the outside world are left at the door.
At the bar, Michele will take you on a journey rich with flavour, combining classic bartending methods with a modern twist.
Paola, our sommelier has created an extensive wine list which features the usual, the rare and the unexpected with the backing of a tailored food menu that reflects Darrellâ€™s trademark audacious creativity.
With nooks and crannies that provide the perfect intimacy, step down for romantic liasons, celebrations with old friends or a quick wine on the way home from work.
We are confident that the discerning connoisseur will find their pleasure at The Red Door.
