Pub Life Kitchen opens in Darlinghurst
Burger concept, Pub Life Kitchen (PLK), has opened at the relaunched 77 in Sydney’s Darlinghurst.
Jamie Wirth and Michael Delany from Drink ‘n’ Dine – recently acquired by Dixon Hospitality – transformed the iconic Club 77 to 77, which now features red neon, leather booths and a long 40-seat bar.
The PLK menu includes The Cheeseburger, comprising a salt aged patty, double cheese, pickles, onions, ketchup and mustard, and the 77Burger, which also comes with a salt aged patty, cheese, pickles, tomato, lettuce and special sauce. Fries and Dirty Fries (topped with cheese and special sauce) are also available.
Pub Life Kitchen uses Canadian Speckle Park beef, raised at Orangeville Farm, just outside Sydney. The beef is salt aged for 10 days and pressed daily.
Jovan Curic launched the first Pub Life Kitchen under the guise Bill & Toni’s Pub Life in 2010. Three years later, it moved to the Lord Wolseley Hotel in Ultimo, trading seven days a week. In April this year, another PLK site launched at Ruby L’otel in Rozelle. The 77 site is PLK’s third venue.
