The team behind iconic Sydney fine diner Bathers’ Pavilion have expanded their footprint in Balmoral with a new casual eatery chanelling all things Italian.

Eddy’s is located on the corner of Awaba Street and The Esplanade and will run as a pop-up until the end of summer, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as takeaway.

“We wanted to create a fun, new local go-to for the whole family to enjoy over the
warmer months,” says Co-Owner and Managing Director of Bathers’ Jess Shirvington.

“Eddy’s is all about delicious, easy and price friendly food and drinks. It’s a little bit enoteca meets milk-bar…”

The venue has space for 40 diners across indoor and outdoor settings and sees Dan Webb heading up the kitchen, who joined first joined the group during Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume residency.

The chef has put together menus for breakfast and lunch and dinner, with service kicking off at 7:30am with a range of pastries from Bathers’ Head Pastry Chef Shruti Punja as well as ciabatta crostini and scrambled eggs; pineapple carpaccio with yoghurt and mint; and ricotta pancakes.

The lunch and dinner menus are designed for guests to share and list everything from proscuitto and melon and grilled asparagus to tuna crudo and fried calamari.

Eddy’s is gearing up to become known for its house pasta offering, which spans the classic aglio e olio; oriechette with pork and fennel sausage and cavolo nero; pappardelle with asparagus, peas and stracciatella; and mafaldine with swordfish, tomato, chilli, and olives.

Not to forget the proteins of swordfish with tomato, chilli, and olive oil; chicken schnitzel, and rump cap with salsa verde.

Drinks follow the Italian theme with a spritz combining Aperol with Hugo and Italicus as well as classic options and drops from Rotherwood Wines.

The space is also offering takeaway via a dedicated side window, with beachgoers able to grab a breakfast focaccia, Roman-style pizza slices, calamari cones, and a salad.

Eddy’s is open Wednesday to Sunday until November before trading seven days December until January.
