Extract from The Loft Project website:
Thomas Lim and Mitchell Orr met in Sydney just over a year ago. Mitchell, a former Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year winner, has worked in some of Australia’s most important kitchens, including Pilu at Freshwater and Sepia.
Having cut his teeth at the harbour city’s perennial performer, Tetsuya’s, Thomas spent several years away from professional kitchens concentrating on The Duxford, his pirate diner. There, with carte blanche, he put together dinners for friends and family, realising a singular style.
In late 2010, the two opened Duke, a late-night bistro in Sydney’s Darlinghurst where the emphasis is on clever, colourful share plates - things to pick at, pull apart, wrap up and pass. It is food that deals in nostalgia, generosity, and wit- it is big on flavour and free of nonsense.
