Redfern stalwart The Norfolk House and Hotel was due to reopen with new owners just as the Sydney lockdown hit. Now there's some extra bite to its second chance at a reboot. A wine bar from the Love Tilly Group is included as part of its plans.

La Salut, a wine bar inside The Norfolk, will open in spring. It's a joint venture between hospitality and accommodation group The People and LTG, the outfit behind a string of venues including Ragazzi and Dear Sainte Eloise.

Word is La Salut will lean heavily on natural Spanish wines and small plates. The 40-seat wine bar will slide into The Norfolk's former sports bar, with executive chef and co-owner Scott McComas-Williams plotting an opening menu of manchego and anchovies, fried quail with morcilla "spice" and three types of jamon. It'll push into big dish territory with house-made Catalan-style sausage with clams and beans.

The Norfolk's  bottleshop will also feature a line-up curated by La Salut.
