Beloved burger haunt Mary’s has found a new way to tempt hungry Sydneysiders.
Having conquered the tastebuds of the city's burger lovers, Jake Smyth and Kenny Graham, the brains behind the tasty buns at Mary’s, have taken over recently revamped The Lansdowne Hotel in Chippendale.
Mary’s Pizzeria is now holding court in the live music venue, slinging slices that emulate the kind you’d find in Detroit and New York.
Its New York pizzas are round and have a thin, chewy crust made from dough that’s fermented for 72 hours. Toppings cover everything from a traditional margherita to a Queensland spanner crab and Calabrian chilli pie with a risqué name to match (we’ll leave it up to you to seek out the moniker on the menu).
The square Detroit pizzas are a completely different. Greasy, cheesy and crunchy, they’re the perfect way to end a big night. With even cheekier names than the New York selection, the pan pizza line-up includes a fermented chilli vegan pie and spicy slices topped with pepperoni, fennel sausage and fresh jalapeños, complete with cheese squished directly into the edge of the crust.
And while the temptation might be to grab a pizza and dig in on the way home, you can also take advantage of the pizzeria’s moody and intimate 12-seat dining area, where you can pair a pizza with a glass of natural wine.
The lengthy wine list was curated by Mary’s manager Tai Tate and includes a collection of carefully chosen natural wines from Smyth and Graham’s P&V Wine and Liquor in Newtown.
Mary’s Pizzeria is open from 4pm to 2am Monday to Thursday, 12pm to 2am Friday to Saturday and 12pm to 12am on Sunday. Bookings can be made on 0434 816 430 between 2pm and 6pm.
