Fratelli Fresh launched their new spring menu across all six Sydney restaurants and one Melbourne restaurant on Tuesday 25 October 2016 at Fratelli Fresh Westfield Sydney.
The Fratelli team have removed the heavier winter dishes and replaced them with lighter additions that are served with either splashes of lemon, white wine or a sprinkling of herbs. There is also some stunning seafood additions in homage to the warmer weather. However, rest assured, their much-loved Italian favourites are still on the menu.
For the entrée, dinner guests were served: zucchini flowers stuffed with five Italian cheeses; Parma fresh figs with Stracciatella di bufala; bitter green shaved vegetables with red wine and anchovy vinaigrette; focaccia plain with olive oil, Italian herbs and salt; and a salumeria selection of prosciutto cotto, prosciutto Parma (18 months), Nduja, finocchiona sopressa, salame inferno from the family-owned Salumi Australia.
The main course consisted of: chilli and lobster paccheri which is a perfect balance of sweet lobster, chilli heat and perfumed basil; a simple house-made ricotta ravioli tossed with passata and fresh basil and topped with premium Vacche Rosse Parmigiano Reggiano from Italy; and a black cod al cartoccio, which is cooked in a paper parcel infusing the fish with the aromas and flavours of lemon, tomato, artichoke, dill and olives (my favourite!).
For dessert, tiramisu (in a large red coffee cup) and zeppole (Italian donuts) were served.
Customers are also encouraged to usher in spring at Fratelli’s Aperitivo Hour from 3pm-6pm daily at all venues. Enjoy half price Negroni ($7.50) on tap, $5 house wine and beers and $10 Spritzers, which can be paired with made-to-order pizzas for just $15 (usually $16-$25).
