Foxy, and others, have in the past recommended Katrina's in Docklands. I have no first-hand experience.

More difficult, but can be done. So-called "butcher's stripes" can work well with CBD attire i.e. dark suits. Pale pink, lavender and such can be OK with darker complexions. Palefaces like me should generally avoid them. I note that you rarely if ever wear ties (at least in the fits you post), so patterned shirts might work with plain jackets - but they should be cut to work without a tie. For instance, button-downs.

 

OK, so that's my advice dispensed for the day. Now I would like to solicit some.

 

ATTENTION SYDNEYSIDERS:

 

Can anyone recommend a good deli or supermarket focused on Italian groceries, preferably in the inner-city area? I used to shop at Norton Street Grocer in Bondi Junction, but they have tragically closed. It's hard for me to get to Leichhardt as I don't have a car.

 

I've searched high and low in the CBD for delicacies such as cotechino sausage and papardelle, and simply can't find them. Even David Jones food hall was of no use.

Sam in Docklands.

Maybe Katrina's isn't in Docklands...I might be confused. Wouldn't be the first time.

Katrina's is in Flinders Lane, Sam is in Docklands.

Much support for Sam in Docklands, Katrina's less support than in previous years.

Have used both and found them to be fine for basic alterations. One key differentiator is that Sam is a very nice bloke, the guy at Katrina's can occasionally be brusque.

Does Salts Meats Cheese fit the bill? http://www.saltmeatscheese.com.au/

Or Fratelli Fresh? Think there's one in Bridge St now and Macquarie. Or Potts Point.

Lite rail? Does stop in Taveners Hill.

Potts Point down the Reno Drive end of Macleay St has a couple of good Delis.

Also Edgecliff did/does have a proper Deli.

In addition to the above - Bottega del Vino on Macleay Street, Potts Point or Fratelli Fresh are my locals, definitely recommend. I think the butcher here has a good range of Italian sausage from time to time.

 

I also heard Fratelli Fresh is opening in Westfield CBD where Jones the Grocer was..

Sam has recently moved. He is now at 10Guest Lane in the CBD, around the corner from Ludlows. It's called Master Alteration and Dry Cleaning. Much nicer shop outfit. Dropped off a shirt there on Wednesday.

 

Has anyone gone across Siberia? Just booked tickets to go from St. Petersberg to Beijing via Mongolia.

post #2516 of 3543
Good to know Sam is in cbd now. Very happy with Katrina's myself and get along with the owner but nice to know there's other quality options around.

You got the bug, mate.

 

I'm currently in Guyana - visiting some places were less than 100 people go a year. Very lucky :)

I don't think all Fratelli Fresh locations have grocery stores attached - tried to buy some things at a CBD location recently and was told the new owners are phasing out the grocery component of all stores, leaving just the restaurants
post #2519 of 3543

Yes - only discovered Fratelli recently via its Macquarie St location. That is definitely just a bar/restaurant. I guess the new Westfield outlet might be more deli-like.

 

I can also check out the recommendations in Potts Point.

 

Not sure what/where Tavener's Hill is - anywhere near Norton St Grocer? I didn't realise the light rail went that way.

Mrs GF has corrected me the Station you want is Marion, it the stop past Tavener's Hill, then a short walk to Leichhardt Market Town Plaza.
