Luxury French vodka label Grey Goose have collaborated with Potts Point restaurant Yellow to present La Boulangerie, an artisan bakery with a French twist.
Running for the remainder of August until the 6th of September, the innovative pop-up features breads baked from the same fine Winter wheat that Grey Goose is made from. To accompany the patisserie selection are limited edition Grey Goose jams. ‘L’Orange’ includes orange vodka, navel oranges and szechuan pepper, while ‘La Poire’ uses pear vodka, lemon and comice pears. Yellow restaurant have extended their mid-week trading hours for the first time to accommodate the breakfast and lunch offer.
By night, chef Brent Savage has created a five-course menu exclusively for the pop-up, with Grey Goose highlighting each dish. The entrée features kingfish cured with Grey Goose ‘Le Citron,’ celery and cod roe, while main is a choice of mahi mahi and roasted carrots in an orange-vodka bisque, or beef with charred onion and green garlic. Matching wines or cocktails are optional.
Next door to La Boulangerie, the iconic Yellow House building has been transformed into Salon de Martini, a bespoke martini bar open for only three nights, from August 27th – 29th. Usually used as an art gallery, the room was a blank canvas prior to brand experience group Yakusan’s transformation. They have decked the space out in signature Grey Goose colours, painting the walls navy and white and installing rich blue velvet sofas, sparkling candles and a mirrored bar.
Besides a classic dry or wet martini, cocktails include the Grey Goose ‘In Fashion,’ made with honey-grilled lemon syrup and yuzu bitters, and ‘Le Fizz,’ with elderflower and soda water. Bar snacks range from braised lamb shoulder sliders to chicken liver parfait, served with vodka-pickled pears. As they say, French is best.
