GOOD BEER WEEK – ITALY + SPAIN

Pint of Origin ’17 is at LADRO!
Until Sunday 21st MAY, you can sample some of the finest rare brews from Italy + Spain. Drink your way through continental Europe without ever having left Prahran. Don’t fancy beer?… Try the LoverBeer Sour, similar to an aged, oaked flinty riesling, or 7 other brews from Italy’s BREWFIST, BIRRA DEL BORGO and Spain’s most awarded craft brewery, NAPARBIER. Try them all with a TAP paddle. We also have our usual vino TAP selection as well as some local gems.

FOH ALLSTARS RAISE $42K @ Ladro!

The Annual FOH ALLSTARS DINNER!

Showcasing the very best in hospitality to support the phenomenal work of StreetSmart. Since 2008 Ladro has been a proud participant and supporter of StreetSmart and this year, [for the 2nd time], we hosted the 2017 dinner in Prahran. Over $42,000 was raised for StreetSmart on the night, helping to empower homeless people and support them through local, grassroots community projects.
100% of money raised on the night was donated.

A special thank you to Eleven Madison Park’s Daniel Humm who dropped into Ladro on the night and offered 2 x tickets to his restaurant Eleven Madison in NYC…They were auctioned off and sold, raising a phenomenal $5000!!! Of course, later that week Eleven Madison went on to take the gong for the world’s #1 restaurant. BIG congratulations from Ladro and all at StreetSmart! X

OUR WASTE…YOUR COMPOST!

SUSTAINABILITY at LADRO

It can be tricky knowing how to introduce sustainable practices into your small business, but we think this one is a no brainer…

We use a high-tec Closed Loop bio-composting system at each Ladro site to help reduce waste which would otherwise be biffed into landfill. This means that 100% of our organic waste is recycled into compost…That’s zero, zippo, nada waste! We sell it back to you for $2 a bag and make regular donations to local community gardens, schools and exchange it for goods from our farmer suppliers. Win win.

Just so you know eating and drinking at Ladro is one way you can lessen your footprint on the planet, we also:
– Use Who Gives a Crap loo paper.
– Use eco-keg mineral water by the awesome DHSMWCo.
– Make honey with our friends at Rooftop Honey.
– Use 100% Aussie owned renewable energy by Momentum.
– Use 100% biodegradable BioPak packaging.
– Burn only sustainable timber from The Green Centre.
– Make our own vino in eco-kegs for Ladro TAP.
– Use only the best local and, where possible, sustainable, free-range or organic suppliers.
– We give back to the community with our Charity BYO $5 initiative every Monday.

BUON ANNO + HAPPY 2016!

2016-LadroHappy New Year! 

We all slept in today…No, not really, but we are opening up a little later than usual due to the joys of using a wood fire oven. When we shut down for long periods, say 9 days like we did this year, the oven can take more than 24 hours to warm up again to over 400 degrees! Hot stuff!

So today we are opening at:
5:30 in FITZROY and 4pm in PRAHRAN.

See you tonight for the first pizza in 2016 ! ! !
