10 William Street: the Pinbone chapter

Pinbone, Sydney

The latest chapter at Sydney hotspot 10 William Street is about to unfold, with the Pinbone chefs taking over as former Garagistes Luke Burgess concludes his stint on the pans on February 8 ahead of an extended sabbatical. "The guys are going to be with us till June, doing their spin on Italian," says co-owner Gio Paradiso. "It's pretty cool."

Chefs Jemma Whiteman and Mike Eggert, best known for their work at Woollahra's Pinbone, have been working under Burgess in the kitchen for the past few months, but plan to take the menu in a new direction. "It's definitely Italian, but with a bit of the Chinese and Japanese we're interested in," says Eggert. "We basically want to keep it really fun and have a lot of snacky things. Jem's really excited about making a lot of different pasta, too."

"We stood in awe of what [previous chef] Dan Pepperell used to do here, having fun with things like the sardine katsus and all that sort of stuff. It's a real honour to be able to cook here and get to walk into what's probably the best restaurant in Sydney and take the reins for a bit and work with Gio."

Team Pinbone was celebrated for its weekend brunches, but Eggert says he and Whiteman have no plans to bring a morning menu to 10 William. "We're going to do brunch at night-time instead," he said, perhaps not with perfect sincerity. "We're all about 'brinner'. Bacon-maple tarts from 10pm."
