who we are
Named after the Italian tradition of passeggiata, Nigel Ward's newest restaurant is a renovated building that boasts three distinct culinary spaces. The accomplished Sydney chef (ex-Uccello, ex-10 William St) and former owner of Darlinghurst favourite, Sagra, has found a home for his new project in Charing Cross, Australia's second-oldest shopping strip.
"After a big long lunch, everyone puts on their suits and their Sunday best and they all go out to the town square and walk around real slow, go have some gelato, or have a little drink somewhere, Nobody's in too much of a hurry, the intention is to... slow down and enjoy the little qualities of life."
- Nigel Ward
