Located in the heart of Crown Street, Italian wine bar and restaurant Mille Vini is getting in on the Sydney Streets action this Saturday 1 October, as Crown Street in Surry Hills is shut down for a huge street party, with local businesses offering specials, one-offs, and fun activations.
Usually a spot for wining and dining in the evening, Mille Vini will have a more casual, daytime offering for Sydney Streets, opening up their big glass windows to serve home-made roast porchetta rolls, that you can enjoy sitting out on the tables and chairs on the sidewalk in front of Mille Vini (pending the Sydney sun coming out!).
Mille Vini’s Chef Francesco, from Puglia, will be serving his original recipe Slow-Roast Porchetta Roast Rolls, made with toasted, crusty wholemeal bread from Surry Hills’ Organic Bread Bar, and served with salsa verde, fresh herbs, and crackling. This baby will set you back $15.
If you’re looking for a drink to complement your roll, wines will be on sale by the glass – you can select a glass of Italian or Australian wine from Mille Vini’s carefully curated wine list.
The operation will be rocking and pork-rolling from 12:30pm to 3:00pm. We recommend getting there early to get in line – these tasty rolls are known to fly out the window!
It’s all part of City of Sydney’s ‘Sydney Streets’ program: Crown Street will be closed off for pedestrian access and local businesses across the street will extend onto the street from 11am to 10pm (between Cleveland Street and Foveaux Street). With so many Sydney hospitality businesses struggling with staff shortages and operating at reduced hours at the moment, this is the perfect way for many Surry Hills businesses to get a much needed boost.
The restaurant will open for dinner service as normal from 3.00pm – 12am on Saturday night, with bookings available online.
