Sydney in summer’s open for lunch set to make the city sizzle
Sydney is set to burst into life this summer with five individual and unique long lunches celebrating the diversity of the Sydney hospitality scene.
Thanks to the NSW Government and part of the Sydney in Summer event series, OPEN FOR LUNCH will feature Sydney’s best chefs and restaurants including Luke Mangan, Matt Moran, Anna Polyviou and more.
Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin said OPEN FOR LUNCH will bring thousands of locals and visitors together to kick-off Sydney in Summer and inject a significant boost to NSW’s world-class hospitality industry.
“OPEN FOR LUNCH will be an unforgettable dining experience and a celebration of food, produce and award-winning chefs across four dining precincts along George Street and a once-off takeover of CommBank Stadium at Parramatta on Friday, 2 December,” Mr Franklin said.
“Top culinary delights will be on the menu featuring NSW produce and legendary musical performances across all locations, making Sydney the place to be this summer.
“This world-class event features never before seen collaborations between Sydney’s hospitality royalty including mimi’s and Tottis; and YCK venues with NOLA Smokehouse, Rockpool Bar & Grill and dessert queen, Anna Polyviou.
“These are exciting times in NSW as Sydney in Summer builds on an incredible major events line-up including Opera on Cockatoo Island, Frida Kahlo: The Life of an Icon, the Art Gallery of NSW Opening Festival, Sydney WorldPride, blockbuster musicals, festivals, major sporting events such as SailGP, the United Cup, the HSBC Sydney 7’s and racing carnivals.”
Each precinct will have different attractions from food style and beverage pairings, to the entertainment and ambiance, which includes roving performers, DJs, Ministry of Sound Orchestra, Australian Motown legends, International musical guests, amusement rides, hay bales and country music.
Tickets are now on sale to all of the long lunch options, which are priced at $65 plus a booking fee. Tickets for each dining experience are limited. You can book tickets on the OPEN FOR LUNCH website.
OPEN FOR LUNCH is the first of the Sydney in Summer event series, presented by the NSW Government via its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW.
