Since early 2018, Yellow re-launched their dinner menu to be 100% vegetarian. Having recognized a growing demand in recent years, Head Chef and co-owner Brent Savage says: “I’ve always loved cooking with vegetables and having a solely vegetable driven menu gives me the opportunity to focus on interesting and heirloom varietals, grown by local suppliers”.The building is steeped in artistic history with collaborative artists’ movement inhabiting the ‘Yellow House’ in the ’60s and changed the face of Potts Point, bringing a bohemian feeling which remains to this day.
