FRENCHIE

Alfie’s team launch a new dining concept in Carrington

Bienvenue to FRENCHIE – where aperitifs meet night caps, and oysters meet steak frites. Refined with a dash of the underground, it’s all about joie de vivre at FRENCHIE.

The team behind New Lambton’s neighbourhood eatery, Alfie’s Italian, have announced the launch of their newest venture set to open Friday, July 5.

Introducing, FRENCHIE.

The latest offering from the group who are also partners in fellow premier Newcastle and Hunter Valley venues including MEET, Lucky Duck Lovedale, and Alfie’s Catering at both Ravella and Leaves & Fishes.

Expanding their love for neighbourhood dining, FRENCHIE aims to build on the team’s simple ethos of delivering good food, good wine, and a good time – this time taking their patrons to another European destination; France.

Whilst FRENCHIE lies tucked away in the backstreets of Carrington, underneath the tough exterior of the former Criterion Hotel is a diamond in the rough.  

Under the helm of Executive Chef, Rafael Tonon, the new restaurant will be home to fine Parisian fare with the likes of classic entrees such as Duck Parfait with Le Birlou and cornichons, Escargot with bonito butter, and Pigs Head Croquettes.

Moving through to the robust and larger dishes including Murray Cod served with Champagne Beurre and caviar, Chicken Brick confit wings or the spectacular Côte de boeuf with duck fat potatoes and sauce Béarnaise.

The food offering is matched by the impressive, and exclusively French, wine list, featuring wines hand-picked from French regions to complement the flavours of the menu. Wine aficionados can appreciate the high rotation by-the-glass wine menu that will offer diners a new drop to try every single visit.
