For an incredibly limited time, fabled New York bar, the very secret PDT (Please Don’t Tell), is coming to Melbourne. Appearing as a pop up in the Attic of Fitzroy’s Black Pearl, this by appointment only residency will run from Thursday 6 August to Sunday 9 August, with timed sessions at 6:00pm to 8:00pm, 8:00pm to 10:00pm, and 10:00pm to 12:00am.
For the uninitiated, PDT is a reservation-only bar in lower Manhattan, New York City, that requires a reservation to visit and boasts an entrance via a phone booth. Just in case I didn’t have your attention before, the also have some rather famous hot dogs too. We wanted to visit when we were in New York a few years back but ran out of time so to say that we’re excited is an understatement.
PDT is the brainchild of award-winning bar team of Jeff Bell and Jim Meehan, and in this unique residency they will transform the Black Pearl’s attic, offering many of their signature cocktails, as well as Australian versions of their New York menu. Also on hand will be chef Chris Terlikar from Bluebonnet Barbecue who will be helping to recreate the PDT menu for the pop up, including famous Spicy Redneck hot dog (house dog, bacon wrapped, with chilli, coleslaw and jalapenos) and a yet to be announced local adaptation hot dog.
