Frankbone? Pinklin? The official title is actually "Pinbone at Franklin", meaning that, yes, Pinbone, Sydney's favourite culinary young-gun trio, is making its way to Hobart for the summer. Since the 'Bones - chefs Jemma Whiteman and Mike Eggert, and manager Berri Eggert - decamped from their Woollahra digs in winter, they've done pop-ups as far afield as Singapore, but their stay at Franklin looks to be more like a residency, as they hitch their wagon to the Hobart hot-spot for three months. Details are still being worked out, but Mike Eggert says a Sunday takeover is a lock, with Franklin chef David Moyle joining Eggert and Whiteman  "cooking and slinging booze in a much more casual style", while Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays may see Team Pinbone doing either a "ghetto Chinese restaurant or a small, Sidecar-style wine bar" as an adjunct to regular Franklin operations. The adventure begins in early December. Stay tuned for more details.
