The Commons Local Eating House indulges Sydney locals with seasonally influenced ingredient-focused cuisine. The name ‘THE COMMONS’ refers to the ‘shared environmental and cultural resources of a city’ and we are proud to support Sydney producers wherever we can. Our produce is sourced as ethically as possible, with meat coming from trusted suppliers who are committed to good animal husbandry, we make all attempts to find out where our seafood comes from, utilize fresh produce from around Sydney, and support local artisan food makers. The Commons is a celebration of Australia and food & wine inspired by it: the perfect convivial setting for a meal served family style.
Complimenting the Chef’s cuisine that combines local sensibility with European traditions, particularly those of the Italian Regions, is a value driven wine list whose focus is on small production vineyards of the Australian regions and a few cellar picks from the “Old Country”, Italy.
The building itself is a tribute to Darlinghurst’s heritage architecture with its sandstone walls, original features throughout, convict markings still visible in the basement larder now a intimate cocktail bar “Downtown”: hide away from the busy hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy a good ol’ drink and some of the best blues and jazz in town.
We look forward to welcoming you soon at The Commons Local Eating House & Downtown Bar
