A true trifecta of tastiness.
Everyone loves a one-stop-shop — and if you live around Yeronga way, you’re going to love the new addition to Orontes Road. When it opens its doors in late October, Osteria Epoca will offer food fiends a restaurant, cafe and provisions store all in one. We know you can count: that’s three reasons to stop by.
The trifecta of tastiness is a labour of love for chef Lorenzo Nobilio, so much so that he’s starting the venture with his partner Natalie Fraser and her parents. The ex-Bistro Alegria kitchen wiz and Ash + Monties owner’s side of the family will get some recognition in a menu that reflects his late grandmother’s hearty, homemade food, and in the general neighbourhood vibe the Italian eatery aims to cultivate.
Think the kind of place that welcomes leisurely feasts of pasta, bread and more at its osteria, is ideal for a quick wine and a share plate at its cafe, and includes a salumi counter and bar in its alimentari. Nope, you won’t be looking for excuses to call in — once you’re there, you’ll be scrambling to justify leaving.
