Time Out says

Chow down on a bespoke lunchtime dining experience to help kickstart Sydney’s dining scene

Sydney’s hospo venues copped a massive blow in 2021, with the city shut down for over a quarter of the year. But now that we’re back open for business, the NSW Government is launching a one-day event to support the recovery of Sydney’s hospitality industry and boost economic activity.

Mark your calendars, because on December 3, Sydney’s Open For Lunch will take over public spaces and bring together renowned culinary talent for a day (and night) long festival of food, with heaps of eat and drink pop-ups all over town. So gather the squad – friends, family, colleagues, well-wishers, whoever – because it’s time to reconnect with our city and help out our beloved dining scene, all the while enjoying some of the best food in the state.

Some of the massive names joining this not-to-be-missed culinary moment include Luke Mangan, Kylie Kwong, Palisa Anderson, and Mike McEnearney, and there’ll be events popping up across Sydney and Parramatta CBDs and city fringes feature a whole host of other hospo legends. 

The three-course luncheon on George Street in the city is already sold out, but there’s still tickets left for long-lunch events in Eveleigh, Parramatta and YCK Laneways, so be quick if you don't want to miss out.

In South Eveleigh, Lucky Kwong’s Kylie Kwong will serve up a curated menu that showcases the lively culture of the inner-west's new buzzing dining precinct. The inner-city foodies paradise is set to become one big food, drink, and entertainment bonanza all day and night.

In Parramatta, Parramatta Square's Long Lunch involves a three-course lunch designed by either Ruse Bar & Grill, CicciaBella or Lilymu, served in Parramatta Square to the chilled grooves of post-hop artists Nardean.

Finally, in the CBD, on York, Clarence, and Kent Streets – aka Sydney's new late-night and entertainment precinct, YCK Laneways – there will be a bunch of events, including a long table lunch with a Japanese-inspired menu and live music.

Tickets to the huge range of Sydney's Open For Lunch events can be purchased now via Ticketek.
