The chicken eatery with a cult-like following in Melbourne, Belle’s Hot Chicken, has announced it will be launching a nine month pop-up at Sydney’s Barangaroo.

Located at the south end of Barangaroo’s new lifestyle hub, Wulugul Pop Up, Sydney’s Belle’s Hot Chicken will begin trading on 25 November.

Belle’s Hot Chicken is the brainchild of Australian chef, Morgan McGlone, born from his passion of natural wine and Nashville Hot Chicken. Following his time as chef de cuisine at Husk (Nashville, Charleston), where Nashville Hot Chicken is celebrated, McGlone teamed up with business partners, Reno Pontonio and Miranda Campbell to deliver Belle’s Hot Chicken to Gertrude Street, Fitzroy in 2014.

The trio also runs the wine bar, Bar Clarine, located next door to Belle’s.

“After witnessing an overwhelming positive response since opening Belle’s in Melbourne, and giving Sydneysiders a taste with the small pop ups over the last year, we knew it was only fair to bring some the fried chicken goodness up to Sydney permanently, and the Barangaroo precinct felt like the perfect location,” said McGlone.

The Belle’s Sydney menu will showcase a smaller offering to Fitzroy’s menu, featuring the signature offerings, however alcohol will be replaced with house-made drinks including lemonade, ice teas and kombucha.

Bourke Street Bakery, Gelato Messina, Campos Coffee and Toby’s Estate form part of Barangaroo’s food service offering, and other high profile restaurateurs setting up shops at the new precinct include Matt Moran and Rene Redzepi of Noma.
