Essenza Italian Kitchen

Essenza Italian Kitchen and Rogue Italian Cafe continues the story of food and hospitality within the historic J.Grocer building which dates back to 1912 and originally sold groceries to Surry Hills locals.

The inspiration for their chapter is founded upon the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of this grand old building, the fundamentals of authentic Italian cooking teamed up with contemporary Australian produce, and floor staff delivering great old school hospitality.

They have seating options inside, perhaps by the old fireplace, and also outside in their idyllic stone courtyard which will transport you right back to your last trip to Tuscany in a flash. The courtyard has a all weather retractable roof making this a dining destination all year round.
