Tokyo Bird team to launch new concept at Tramsheds
Ahead of its 22 September opening, Sydney’s Tramsheds Harold Park has announced its latest food providore Osaka Trading Co – a modern Japanese restaurant from the owners of Surry Hills laneway bar, Tokyo Bird.
Osaka Trading Co will join an array of respected food retailers in the newly restored European-inspired food hall, including Belle’s Hot Chicken; restaurant, bar and butchery Butcher & The Farmer, brainchild of head chef Jared Ingersoll and part of the Seagrass Hospitality group; sustainable seafood restaurant, Fish & Co; and Brazilian tapas restaurant, Bodega 1904.
Paying homage to the Japanese drinking and dining culture, Osaka Trading Co. will take popular elements from Tokyo Bird’s offering and combine it with a modern Japanese menu with a seafood focus.
Osaka Trading Co. and Tokyo Bird co-owner and general manager, Jason Ang said, “Osaka is considered the food capital of Japan. So while Tokyo Bird is our laneway small bar, Osaka Trading Co. is a modern Japanese restaurant with seafood taking centre stage – with great drinks alongside, of course. Osaka Trading Co. will incorporate some features of Tokyo Bird, but this is an entirely new concept with lunch options and a full-service dinner menu, seven days a week.
“Tramsheds is the perfect place to launch our new venue – it will be a destination unlike anywhere else in Sydney. It’s amazing to be standing side-by-side the incredible line-up of food providores in such a unique, iconic building,” said Ang.
Further retailers are due to be announced over the coming weeks.
