Firedoor is a leading Sydney restaurant with world-renowned head chef Lennox Hastie. Firedoor serves seasonally driven food that has been cooked over wood coals and presented simply, allowing the quality of the produce and aroma of the embers to do the talking. Unlike other grill and wood-fired restaurants the entire menu is solely powered by fire, treating wood as a central ingredient. A selection of different woods are burned daily to create coals that enhance the natural characteristics of each dish. The menu focuses on delicate ingredients such as shellfish and vegetables, rather than the traditional meat driven menus usually associated with grills. Hastie says, “Fire offers an amazing spectrum of flavour and new flavours to discover. Nothing expresses the integrity of an ingredient more than an honest piece of wood. I want Firedoor to change the way people think about cooking over fire”.
About Atlas Dining:
Charlie Carrington was inspired to open Atlas Dining in September 2016 after an eight-month trip spanning 15 countries across South America, North America, Europe and Asia. The 22-year-old’s first restaurant explores different cuisines of the world as the seasons change. Atlas Dining’s menu will be transformed three times per year based on Carrington’s travel experiences. The first cuisine is Vietnamese, which is on offer until the end of December. Carrington is focusing on local ingredients, which he transforms minimally with wood cooking techniques learnt under the guidance of Lennox Hastie. The 50 seat venue offers a six course tasting menu and an à la carte menu with a selection of smaller plates available at the bar.
