Drake Eatery’s chic yet homely decor would only be half the reason Bondi passers by would gravitate towards a place named after two things, the street Head Chef Ian Oakes’ grandma lived on and his favourite poultry. Focussed on simply prepared dishes that hero quality locally sourced and sustainable produce in a relaxed setting, it seems that on the eve of the venue’s first birthday any uncertainties this venture wasn’t going to fly (pun intended) may have been quietened for the time being....
