Hartsyard founders partner with YouTube duo for new Sydney restaurant
Artisans of fried chicken, Gregory Llewellyn and Naomi Hart, have announced they are partnering with the Mighty Car Mods Blair Joscelyne and Marty Mulholland for Wish Bone in Sydney's Enmore.
Set to open in late April at the former site of the Gretz Bar, Wish Bone seeks to provide quality quick-food and drinks with superior service.
“We're opening a restaurant,” announced Joscelyne in the duo's latest, YouTube video.
“We've teamed up with chef extraordinaire (Llewellyn) and we're bringing the taste of the deep south mixed with an automotive twist.”
The four are long term friends and fans of one another, previously working together for a DIY cooking video series.
“This venue is a true collaboration, from the way the restaurant looks and feels, all the way down to what's going on the menu,” said Llewellyn.
The menu will feature signature Llewellyn dishes including fried chicken, poutine and softies, as well as an extensive drinks roster, featuring pre-batched cocktails, bourbon slushies and tinnies.
Joscelyne and Mulholland's influence is clear in the restaurants décor. The colour scheme is based on the pair's favourite duco colours, Nissan 240Z white, and a wish bone suspension supports the restaurants tables.
“Enmore is such an awesome spot,” said Mulholland, “there's the Enmore Theatre across the road, music venues the whole way up Enmore Road and King Street - while there are lots of good food options, there's nothing quite like what our mate Gregory serves up.”
Husband and wife, Llewellyn and Hart burst onto the Newtown restaurant scene in 2012 with the brash, US styled Hartsyard.
With over 2.5 million subscribers, Mighty Car Mods is one of Australia's biggest YouTube success stories. The independent automotive series is now broadcast on the Discovery Channel.
Wish Bone will open at the end of April for dinner, 5pm til late. Please visit wishbonerestaurant.com.au for more information.
