Drum – Opening Soon
Nick Pinn is certainly not one to rest on his laurels. As if the restaurateur didn’t have enough happening – he’s the man responsible for Malt Dining, Malt Pier, Malt Traders, Vaquero and On The Side – he’s now partnering with long-time friend Paul Hoffmann (ex-executive chef at Cru Bar and At Sixes and Sevens) to open Drum in Newstead. Positioned under Mirvac’s Unison development, the restaurant and bar aims to be a local meeting house, with Paul working on a menu of modern no-fuss dishes with European influences. With the idea that locals can pop in for anything from a cheeky cheese and wine to a long lunch or dinner, the kitchen and bar will be open all day from 11:00 am Tuesday to Sunday, with brunch to be served from 10:00 am on weekends. Drum is set to open in the second week of November – we’ll have full details soon.
