Jock Zonfrillo’s new, two-level restaurant, Street-ADL and Orana, has arrived on Rundle St with a focus on local ingredients and dual dining.
Helmed by chef/founder Jock Zonfrillo (pictured), formerly of Magill Estate, the new eatery is comprised of two dining areas; downstairs is Street-ADL, an accessible bar offering informal dining, cocktails and ‘street’ food, and upstairs is Orana, a small, intimate restaurant offering more complex dishes. Local graphic design group MASH designed the fit-out of both restaurants. Pertaining to the concept of ‘dual’ dining, both eateries are connected by a continuous piece of art, painted by Italian artist 2501. “Street-ADL is a fun, loud, almost chaotic location with a strong, dynamic energy. However, in direct contrast, Orana is more intimate, more understated and it was here that we wanted to provide a subtle link to Jock’s amazing and visionary support of Indigenous ingredients and growers,” MASH Creative Director Dom Roberts said in a press release. Joining Zonfrillo at Street-ADL and Orana are former Magill Estate employees Shannon Fleming (Head Chef), Aaron Fenwick (Restaurant Manager) and Wine Director Joshua Picken. Both restaurants are open to the public now. The two menu experiences, as described by the Street-ADL and Orana team, are below. Street-ADL “Every nation in the world celebrates its own identity and culture through its street food. At Street-ADL, the tastes and flavours of Australia are celebrated with dishes like Pulled Sangas (sandwiches with hot smoked kangaroo shoulder), BBQ KI Marron (Kangaroo Island marron quickly blanched and then BBQ’d with Australian mountain pepper) and Pork Ribs (marinated, slow cooked, glazed and fried in quandong and bush tomato). Street-ADL is a large bar and restaurant with shared seating for informal fun dining. The menus are displayed in a series of light boards, creating a unique and purposeful art installation. The use of native ingredients spreads from the dishes into the cocktail menu where classics are influenced using the flavours of quandong jam, native mint and lemon aspen, amongst others. The spontaneous energy at the bar can often overflow and, with access to these unique ingredients from the kitchen, bespoke one-off cocktails are created in the moment, such as riberry caipirinhas or cinnamon myrtle sours. Street-ADL is about enjoyment – it’s about accessibility and having a great time with great food and great drinks.” Orana “The upstairs restaurant, Orana, meaning “welcome” in some Aboriginal language, is by contrast a smaller restaurant for 25 guests. It has its own separate entrance and includes a dedicated small and private lounge area. Zonfrillo has created two tasting menus that can be matched by wines or by juices suggested by the establishments’ wine director, Joshua Picken. Dishes like Fire Charred Coorong Mullet, Flax Lilly & Sweet Apple Berries or Fresh Mudcrab, Sandpaper Fig & Wild Pea showcase Jock Zonfrillo’s philosophy and journey of country.” Street-ADL and Orana are open now, located at 285 Rundle St, Adelaide.
