Michael Bradley, co-owner of Lot. One Potts Point, has brought what was formerly Lot1 in Sydney’s CBD to the leafy suburb of Potts Point — and given it a slight re-brand. Although the venue was dubbed a seemingly difficult spot to open a restaurant, the locals are loving the addition to their suburb. EatClub is delighted to have Lot. One on the platform, as are many of Sydney’s EatClub users. This inviting restaurant is tucked away just off the main strip of Potts Point. Look for the red door and the Edison light globes.
Lot. One opened in May 2018.
Before that, Michael Bradley, Xenia Jade and a few other hospitality professionals had decided to take a leap in their careers. The company of Lot. One was already set up, they just needed to find the right venue. After viewing the Potts Point venue, it was unanimous: Lot. One had found its home. The walls and ceiling were darkened, the exposed brick was left untouched and they changed all of the lighting to create the alluring, sexy space that is Lot. One.
With a menu executed by chef and co-owner Xenia Jade, Lot. One represents ‘modern Australian dining’, which according to Bradley is multicultural: ‘It’s everything from BBQ meats to Japanese, to Vietnamese and Italian. And it’s evolving’. The blending of Australian produce with subtle international influences comes from the internationality of their diverse, well-travelled team. They offer an exciting menu that follows the seasons and is never too over the top. ‘We offer a menu so that everybody can find dishes they like — dishes that excite the whole table.’
The majority of the wine list features Australian wines with smatterings of wines from New Zealand. It features some Spanish, French and Italian wines but they try to source an Australian version of the varietal first. ‘We have an Italian section called “Italian selections and their Aussie mates”, featuring Italian varietals that are grown in Australia,’ says Bradley.
The welcoming lot at Lot. One will make you feel right at home.
Lot. One’s team is small but loaded with experience and passion. Bradley describes their attitude: ‘our restaurant is our house and everybody that comes through the door we like to welcome as though they’re a friend, a long-lost relative or someone we’ve not seen in a while.’
You’ll feel so welcome at Lot. One.
