Given Kitchen & Bar – Opening Soon
If you’re already mapping out your January plans, then make sure you save a date for the arrival of Given Kitchen & Bar, the forthcoming cafe, wine bar and restaurant from the team behind Paddington’s Ngon. The group has secured a nearby space (formerly home to a Thai restaurant) for the concept, which will operate as an extended pop-up for the duration of 2021. Given’s offering will run from morning to night, with an Asian-inspired breakfast menu (paired with coffee from local roasters The Black Lab Coffee Co.) transitioning to a seafood-forward dinner offering, encompassing plenty of trawler-fresh morsels cooked over coals. The Given menus will incorporate elements of Filipino, Singaporean, Malaysian and Vietnamese cuisines, with the nighttime fare bolstered by a selection of boutique wines. A roster of DJs will perform in the evenings, helping set a lively and laid-back tone. Stay tuned for a closer look at Given when it opens in late January.
