Nestled on the ground floor of Kingston’s East Hotel is a small, modern, Italian gem boasting a big personality. Featuring numerous textures and colours by Sydney designer Kelly Ross, the interior of the venue combines marble, wood, metal, plastic and warm frosted lights above green velour lounges to present a comfortable space with all the trimmings.
Italian-born Head Chef, Francesco Balestrieri, has created a menu inspired by the experience his heritage and memories of food shared among family and friends. Balesterieri embraces techniques of the old country by curing his own ocean trout, pickling vegetables, dehydrating mushrooms and toasting grains.
The wine list is impressive for such a small venue. But, in true Italian style the pages of wine are perfectly matched to the simple, yet delicate dishes on offer
Open seven days from midday until late, Joe’s Bar is the perfect place for afternoon drinks, a catch up with friends over an antipasto plate, or treating someone special for a date night.
