Bar Brosé, Sydney

Up-and-coming chef puts vibes centre stage at Sydney's super casual new destination, Bar Brosé...

Co-owner and head chef Analiese Gregory has served time at some of the world’s top restaurants — London’s The Ledbury, Restaurant Le Meurice Alain Ducasse, Paris, and Spain’s Mugaritz to name but three — which means expectations are high at Sydney’s Bar Brosé, where the New Zealander takes control for the first time; in a collaboration with the team behind ACME, where Gregory was working under head chef Mitch Orr.

Those expectations might be doing their expecting that Gregory’s first solo adventure would be all about fine dining, such is the young chef’s pedigree, but Bar Brosé bills itself as a wine bar; ‘in Europe, my friends or business partners and I would spend time in a particular breed of wine bar with really good food and wines available, but super casual,’ she explained to Sydney’s Broadsheet recently, adding that ‘Sydney needs more of these places.’

And more of these places it has, or one at least — designers Luchetti Krelle coming up trumps with a cool space that befits Gregory’s super casual brief. There’s a more polished look than their raw fit-out for ACME, and Seinfeld’s George Costanza doesn’t crop up in his undies, but there’s an understated poise that unites the two; and this is one particular breed of wine bar where knowing Sydneyites are sure to flock to.
