Jon Adgemis to revamp Sydney’s Norfolk hotel with Ricos Tacos


Entrepreneur Jon Adgemis has partnered with owner and chef, Toby Wilson, with an announcement Ricos Tacos will be taking over The Norfolk hotel in Redfern, the Public Hospitality Group’s Cleveland street pub.

Last month, Ricos Tacos announced it was closing up at its Chippendale spot. The taco restaurant will be revamped in the new location at The Norfolk.

Mr Adgemis said in a statement, Ricos Tacos will “complete the precinct” by moving to The Norfolk.

“Redfern is an important location for us to invest in further as we have with the success of La Salut” Adgemis said, adding his confidence in partnering with Ricos Tacos.

Mr Adgemis, Public Chief Executive of the Public Hospitality Group, is on a mission to transform Sydney city’s hospitality and dining experiences and the relocation of Ricos Tacos to The Norfolk, adds to the public groups unfolding portfolio.

The group has also recently partnered with the likes of big-deal chefs and restaurants, recently signing with Automata’s Clayton Wells as creative culinary director and Melbourne’s Guy Grossi for the brand’s first Victorian venue, Puttanesca.

In February, chef Wilson was approached by the expanding hospitality group Public, agreeing to work together within a couple of days of meeting.

“It just made sense for both of us,” Mr Wilson tells The Sydney Morning Herald in an interview.

The Norfolk’s upstairs bar will become Club Ricos, a lounge inspired by Mexican sports bars of the 1960s and is set to open in September this year.

Ricos will be taking over both floors of the pub, with downstairs being a bigger and more expansive version of the classic Ricos Tacos experience and upstairs being home to the new “Club Ricos”, the Ricos website reads.

The Ricos menu will remain true to what customers know it to be with the usual tacos and weekly favourites.

Mr Wilson tells Broadsheet in an interview, “It’s all about championing the things that we’ve always done, that represent us well.”
