Staying true to its pop-up origins, the Crown and Anchor/Midnight Spaghetti/Roxie’s/Chateau Apollo site has announced yet another evolution, welcoming the Comida crew in to take up permanent residency in the Roxie’s kitchen.

Comida Central Market fans fear not – Brad and Fiona Sappenberghs will continue to operate their (under-rated) market stall, but will expand to introduce a “short and sweet” tapas menu full of “market stall staples” to Roxie’s and Chateau Apollo, as well as bringing over their paella night concept, and adapting the wood-fired pizza menu to take a “Spanish tack.”

“We have plenty of experience over the years of working together with Brad, Fiona and their team and respect them as operators of the highest integrity,” a statement from the venue says.

“Brad’s food from his beautiful, highly underrated little tapas bar in the markets… his myriad of festival events and his private catering has always offered some of the most delicious, creative and nourishing food around Adelaide and we can’t wait to have that in our venues.”

Comida’s residency commences on Wednesday, 15 August, is just one of many recent tweaks of the site’s offering, including the recent approval of DJs in the Roxie’s garden, and improvements to the Crown and Anchor Bandroom, courtesy of Novatech, and reportedly to the great delight of Matt Hill, the resident sound technician.

“As a venue, we fully intend to remain the heart of the East End’s music culture, until they knock us down,” the statement reads.

“The Cranker has live music six nights a week and Comedy every Tuesday, Midnight Spaghetti has DJs every night and occasional live acts, Chateau has a burgeoning music and arts program under the control Alice Fraser and Roxie’s will now have DJ’s every night of the week.”

CityMag will be following the story later this week, so stay tuned.
