Northern eatery came about to fill the gap between fast food and fine dining in Northcote about three weeks ago and has been very well accepted in the local areas as well as the wider Greek community in Melbourne.
The owners of Northern Eatery are three and all of Hellenic background; Katherine Sourtzis, Tony Tzoumacas and Anastasios Stamatiou.
“The cuisine, although fusion does have elements and products that depict our heritage and culture,” Anastasios Stamatiou tells Neos Kosmos.
“We consider ourselves a simple, yet defined, casual dining experience.”
Dimitrios Petrakos who was born in Greece and is now a permanent resident of Melbourne is the head chef and his imaginative and mouth-watering dishes are the centrepiece of Northern Eatery’s dining experience.
“Our menu caters for all tastes, as does our venue; light and airy. Bold whites with earth undertones.”
“Somewhere you can simply get together with friends and family without worrying if everyone will like it. We have tried to offer place where we ourselves would like to eat.”
The most popular dishes so far include the lamb cutlets served on a celeriac remoulade and the Eton mess, which is best described as a deconstructed pavlova with an olive caramel and fresh mango.
The daisy rolls, lamb cutlets and the mint panna cotta also come with high recommendations.
“We also serve Greek beer, ‘μαστίχα’ (mastic) and Hellenic sparkling water.”
“We share a passion for food, and more so, dining with great parea,” Stamatiou enthuses.
Northern Eatery (located in 468 High Street Northcote, Vic) is open from 5pm. For more information phone (03) 90770555.
