Joy Restaurant – Opening Soon
Bakery Lane will soon be the recipient of a brand-new culinary hideaway. Joy Restaurant is the brainchild of Tim and Sarah Scott, two adventurous hospitality vets who have spent a considerable amount of time working in top-notch Sydney venues, including Sepia, Automata and Sixpenny. After taking some time out, the couple are returning to Brisbane (where they did their apprenticeships) to open a spot of their own in The Valley. When conjuring up their own restaurant, the couple fell in love with the idea of removing the line between front and back of house. As soon as customers enter Joy Restaurant they will be in the middle of the action, almost as if they’ve wandered into the kitchen by accident. At Joy Restaurant, the key word is intimacy – only ten diners will be served at a time, with Tim and Sarah doing everything themselves. The food on offer will have a distinct Japanese influence, made with local Australian ingredients and Scandinavian techniques. Joy Restaurant is slated to open in February or March. Stay tuned for more details in the new year.
