    Yellow pops out

    Yellow House Pop Up departs the territory in favour of The Bentley boys ... Old artists reoccupy the hallowed ground for a final remembrance ceremony ... Nosher reports 

    An empty Yellow House

    SAD to see the lads from Yellow Pop Up close up shop. 

    Jamie Morgan and Ben Sutton are looking for a new pop-up opportunity as they're making way for another branch of the Bentley Restaurant & Bar business, which plans to open soon in the Yellow House.

    The Bentley people, chef Brent Savage, sommelier Nick Hildebrandt and restaurant manager Glen Goodwin, already run the successful Monopole, a hop-step-and-a-jump further up Macleay St. 

    They are also moving their main restaurant from Surry Hills to the Radisson Blu Hotel on the corner of Pitt and Hunter Streets, once occupied by Tony Bilson's fine dining palace. 

    There was a jolly afternoon tea party on Sunday (July 28) to say au revior and thanks to Jamie and Ben.

    Some from the former artists colony that occupied the Yellow House in the 1960s were on hand, including Martin Sharp and Peter Kingston. 

    Certificates signed by Sharp from the "Ginger Meggs School of Arts" were handed out to deserving recipients, for possessing qualities such as "Sense of humourism ... Lunaparking ... Anytimeism ... Friendship". 

    Cakes were scoffed in great quantities. 

    The Yellow House property has had fixed fortunes after Lorraine Godsmark and George Sinclair moved out. 

    The Bentley will "anchor" the tenancy with a French bistro. 

    Let's hope they can persuade the council to overcome the screeches from neighbours and allow a few chairs and tables on the footpath.
