The team behind city eatery PUBLIC on Franklin St have secured the old Paesano site on O’Connell St in North Adelaide, where they will open PIPPO this September.
PIPPO will be James and Danielle Anthony’s sixth hospitality venue, boasting over a hundred seats and built around the same food philosophies that has made PUBLIC the bustling eatery it is today.
Danielle, who is the creative director and interior designer behind their new venue explains, “This is the type of eatery you meet for a casual brunch with the family, lunch with friends, and relaxed dinner at night. It’s about elevating the standard and mostly the perception of an all-rounder to the next level, without intimidating or excluding anyone from the market.”
The food, James assures will be refined yet honest.
“We’re installing a wood forno (oven), which will be the hero piece. This will be used for the majority of cooking from breakfast, brunch, lunch to dinner,” says James.
The menu will include “on the go” food items such as freshly baked panini with cured meats and fillings, house-made pastries, and outstanding coffee.
The kitchen menu will include a creative, yet honest breakfast menu, and an amazing list of starters, house-made pasta, mains to share and a cheeky pizza or two available for lunch and dinner.
“The idea behind the menu is simple, it’s the food you want to eat! A menu that satisfies every guest at the table. Some nights you may feel like a pasta all to yourself, another night you may want share a slow cooked lamb shoulder and sides,” says Danielle.
PIPPO will be open 7 days a week from 7am to late, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals — and an all-day brunch menu on the weekends!
The venue is scheduled to open in September, with Bowlsome North Adelaide opening next door to PIPPO at the end of August.
