The newly-named Dear Sainte Eloise will leave the laneway lobster rolls behind for an indoor-only, moody wine den.
Potts Point laneway anchor Waterman's Lobster Co. is in for a real overhaul this month, as owner Matt Swieboda brings the original team from Darlinghurst small bar Love, Tilly Devine back together in their newest venture. They'll be transforming their Lankelly Place digs off Orwell Street from a restaurant obsessed with the perfect lobster roll (only Maine or Connecticut style, no exceptions) to a moody, late night wine bar.
Rebranded as Dear Sainte Eloise, the new venue's name is taken from George Orwell's first full-length book Down and Out in Paris and London, in which the destitute narrator prays to a photo of (who he thinks is) Sainte Eloise for enough money to buy bread and wine.
Dear Saint Eloise will have a strong emphasis on wine, with a whopping 350 list to choose from. The rest of the drinks menu will be paired back to keep the focus on wine, but will include a very small, four-cocktail list featuring a 'premium' Negroni using Tasmanian gin, Spanish vermouth and Adelaide's Applewood Distillery liqueurs.
Opening hours are Tuesday through Thursday from 5pm until midnight, Friday through Saturday noon to midnight and Sunday noon to 6pm.
WHEN: Tuesday May 16th 2017
WHERE: 5/29 Orwell St, Potts Point
