While renovations are happening at the Moore Street location, Dave Young is packing up the pans at Temporada and taking over the kitchen at Intra for a couple of weeks.
"We're calling them the 'Temporary Relocation Dinners'," says Young.
"We're taking the show on the road while the whole building, and the restaurant, are getting a facelift.
"It's not great timing in the grand scheme of things but it definitely could be worse."
Young says if there's one thing the ongoing situation has taught him, and indeed the whole hospitality industry, it's to keep evolving, to find new ways to do business, ways to feed people.
"These will be pretty intimate dinners, we'll be seating a maximum of 14 people at a time, offering a four course set menu with the option of matched wines."
We've been to Intra before and the aesthetic is a great fit for Temporada. It's sleek and dark and minimalist and while it does a roaring daytime trade, the space transforms at night.
It's not a big kitchen by any means - "that's going to be a challenge," Young says, "We might have to set the Weber up outside" - but that's half the fun with these kinds of projects. A while back I ran a pop-up called The Side Project and we cooked dinners once a month for 30 guests upstairs at Lonsdale St Roasters No7," Young says.
"They were amazing, one sitting, one menu, communal tables, matched wines only ... However, the current state of affairs prevents us from doing the same thing - so we'll be taking individual tables across multiple time slots, and offering choices for drinks. It'll be Temporada, but not as you know it."
The Temporary Relocation Dinners will run for two weeks, from August 11-15 and 18-22. There'll be a four-course set menu for $75pp and wines will be by the glass/bottle/or matched for $55.
"Expect to see some strange and unique wines from around the world," Young says.
"What you can expect though is the same commitment to interesting and innovative dishes, local produce, and service. It's the chance to see Temporada through a different lens."
