The arrival of a higher-end dining option such as Husk & Vine Kitchen & Bar in Parramatta is big news: it’s the sort of swank restaurant the area was waiting for, confirming the suburb’s status as being ‘on the move’ and adding to the rejuvenation of the city’s west. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of Skye Hotel Suites, the suburb’s first five-star hotel offering luxury boutique apartments, and the dining demographic ranges from locals looking for something fancier than Neil Perry's Burger Project next door to international visitors doing business in Sydney's second CBD.
The Parramatta precinct has been growing fast in recent years – the CBD here is now one of the second biggest commercial hubs outside the Sydney CBD – and so the restaurant scene is on the rise.
