Joe Mammone, the restaurateur behind Sarti and Il Bacaro, is expanding his portfolio, with a cafe and a rooftop bar set to join his South Yarra restaurant, Bar Carolina, on July 24.
Bar Carolina and its new siblings, Cantina Carolina and rooftop bar Tetto, share a Toorak Road address and a design aesthetic, courtesy of veteran architect Chris Connell (Il Bacaro, King & Godfree, Caffe e Cucina), but they're designed to complement rather than compete with each other.
Executive chef Matteo Tine (ex Grossi, Mr Ottorino) will serve a relaxed, Italian breakfast and lunch menu at the cafe, Cantina Carolina (Cantina for short). Expect "all the eggs" plus lunch dishes such as spicy fried chicken in a brioche bun with fennel slaw and pickles.
