PATS – THE PHILLY WAY, MELBOURNE
Pipe Mania-inspired eatery eschews typical US diner aesthetic...

Remember the old Amiga game where you had to fit bits of pipe together, for reasons not entirely clear? So did we, when we experienced the striking interior of the catchily-titled PATS – The Philly Way. Bringing a taste of South Philidelphia to the Australian state of Victoria, PATS (that’s Premium Australian Trimmed Steak, HENCE THE CAPITALS) serves up its take on the famous steak sandwich born in the original stateside Pat’s in the 1930s.
Happily, there’s not much evidence of your typical US fast food joint in the Richmond eatery, however. Studio Equator, the restaurant designers, have swerved the primary colours and Hollywood schtick of Pulp Fiction’s Jack Rabbit Slim’s and have instead gone for a mixture of the industrial and the musical, calling on the history of the famous east coast American city to bring real flavour to the place. Jazz motifs evoke the spirit of the 60s and 70s, and the warm oranges and browns of the era ensure the pseudo-plumbing overhead doesn’t sterilise the dining experience. (We’re happy to report the said ceiling installations are light housings, not soil pipes).
