Bar Torino is a European-style tapas and cocktail bar, offering a share-style experience on Hutt Street. Creating authentic food favourites with a modern twist. Behind the bar, in addition to our cocktails; we have a weakness for gin, good wine, craft beers and those unusual European tipples like vermouth and sherry. When it comes to the food, like most good things, our menu is designed to be shared with good company. We offer small plates for a little bite, or if it is more of a feast you are after, chef has larger more substantial meals ready. In true Mediterranean style, charcoal-grilled meats and paella are a weekend specialty. There’s also a late-night menu that kicks in after 10.30pm. We love bringing the European bar culture to Adelaide where good drink and good food go hand-in-hand!
Chianti is one of Australia’s oldest Italian restaurants, celebrating its thirty second year in 2017. Chianti’s influence originally stemmed from the Favaro family’s Northern Italian heritage, but when Tobias Gush, head chef and now partner came into the business from London he brought a broader knowledge of other Italian regions. Tobias had worked with Ruth Rogers and the late Rose Gray at their applauded Italian London River Café restaurant. It was with these two legendary women that Tobias’ love of all things Italian began and flourished. Whilst Chianti is a restaurant that celebrates the history of Italian cooking with many time-honoured dishes, and the menu and food are driven by the true Italian tradition of local and seasonal, modern Italian food equally has a respected place. The association with specialist growers and producers is obvious in all they create. Chianti has a multi-award winning wine list of great depth and breadth featuring the best of Italian and Australian wines and an excellent back vintage list for those who love to indulge. Wines by the glass and wines matched to food are part of the total dining experience.

At Burger Theory, we think about burgers a lot. We spend a lot of time making them too. In 2011 we started selling them from Adelaide’s first roaming food truck, and in October 2013 we opened our first fixed store at the corner of Ebenezer Place and Union St in Adelaide’s East End. Our beef is ground in house from whole Coorong Angus chuck muscles. All patties are cooked and seasoned to order. They are never frozen, never kept more than 48 hours and never held above four degrees – that is, until they hit the grill. Our Greenslade chicken thigh fillets are genuinely free range and grilled while you wait. We make and serve a fresh batch of Wisconsin-style ice cream, known as frozen custard, every day. Forget the dubious ‘health’ claims made by some burger joints; if it’s a burger you’re after, you deserve one made with the burger’s best interests at heart!
