Dining, Pyrmont Style…

The restaurants of Pyrmont have come together under the Pyrmont Festival of Wine, Food & Art to showcase the very best of their dining experiences, complimented by exquisite country wines from central NSW.

Choose your indulgence from a plethora of lunches, dinners and tastings all carefully matched with boutique wines from the cellar doors of the Mudgee region. The award-winning local establishments getting involved cover everything from the best brunches to the most unique cultural flavour fusions.

Known as one of the ‘most Instagrammable cafes of Sydney’ (BuzzFeed Oz) Café Morso is renowned as a fantastic brunch spot and one of Jones Bay Wharf’s most charming heritage features.

Following a longstanding tradition of Taiwanese hospitality with a distinct personal touch, the Blue Eye Dragon is considered by many as Pyrmont’s ‘hidden gem’ and one of the best Chinese dining experiences in the city. (Their steamed dumplings are so impressive you may find yourself taking home a frozen kilo of them.)

Illuminated at night by the glow of tiny lights hanging from the ceiling and serving up modern Italian with Japanese influences in a glass-walled waterfront venue described as a ‘light box’, LuMi Bar & Dining has quickly established itself as one of Sydney’s most stunning dining experiences since opening late last year.

Constructed from an original heritage wharf site and surrounded by stunning views of the Sydney Harbour, The Flying Fish Restaurant & Bar will be hosting an intimate wine dinner on Friday the 22nd to showcase the country charm of Mudgee and the delights of their contemporary and unique dining experience.

If attempting to restrict yourself to only one of the dining experiences Pyrmont has to offer is a task leaving you with inner turmoil and a serious case of FOMO, then set your inner conflict aside and book yourself into The Sydney Connection’s Progressive Dining Walk. For one night only on Wednesday May 20th you have the opportunity to tag along on a degustation of discovery throughout Pyrmont’s diverse dining establishments. Starting on Harris Street with a pre-dinner drink at local favourite Gallon Bar, you will then be guided through a culinary trail including visits to Brio, The Persian Room and last but not least – LuMi.

No matter where you choose to dine in Pyrmont you can expect high quality cuisine conceived and dished up by dedicated professionals, along with the ambience of one of inner-Sydney’s most stunning areas. Throughout the Pyrmont Festival you can also expect to sample some of Mudgee’s finest boutique country wines without leaving the city.
