A lovely winter garden is popping up in Randwick’s newest neighbourhood this month. The precinct is set to transform into a dusk dining hotspot with heaps of Sydney favourites getting in on the fun. The event will run every Thursday until the end of July with wine tastings, live jazz music and hanging garden installations taking over the venue.
Enjoy your favourite dishes under a sky of forest vines and pretty foliage. While you dine the evening away, there’ll be elegant jazz music to keep you entertained with bands Vintage Pop Collective and The Uprights bringing in all the dreamy vibes.
Attendees are also encouraged to peruse through the extensive selection of food retailers and exclusive offers.
As for food offerings, it’s a huge mix of cuisines and restaurants. There’s RaRa Ramen bringing their hearty chicken katsu curry to the table along with their house made Japanese curry and crispy panko crumbed free-range chicken. If you’re hunting for truffle you’ll find roasted shiitake, crispy egg yolk and truffle pecorino fondue courtesy of Mediterranean restaurant Sella Vinoteca. You can also get feasting on chicken roulade, roasted artichokes, smoked cauliflower truffle jus and more. For a classic pasta and wine combo, Baccomatto Osteria will be on-site slinging a sublime homemade pappardelle with porcini mushroom, chestnuts and parmesan. You can also get your hands dirty with a premium truffle and bacon burger by Ribs & Burgers.
And who better to tie it all up with dessert than the gelato giants themselves? Head to Messina for citrusy yuzu-scented, baked cheesecake, gelato smashed with chunks of banana bread and melt-in-your-mouth honey-soaked loukoumades.
Dusk Dining at Randwick Newmarket kicks off on July 7 until July 28 every Thursday for one whole month of dreamy jazz and food evenings. Head to their website for details.
