Expect eats from the hatted Baccomatto Osteria, RaRa Ramen, Cali Press and more at Newmarket Dining in the heart of Randwick.
With the opening of the first phase of Sydney’s long-awaited light rail, accessing new parts of the city is now easier than ever before. And for those looking to explore the eastern suburbs, a new foodie precinct has just launched in the heart of Randwick. Introducing Newmarket Dining, the new food and lifestyle destination that has just launched the first stage of its newly opened venues earlier this month.
Set just a short stroll from the light rail, Newmarket Dining’s first phase of openings boasts five exciting new flagship venues for punters to experience. Coming to diners direct from Surry Hills is the hatted Italian restaurant Baccomatto Osteria, delivering signature hand-made pasta and wood-fired meats and more. Since closing their doors on Riley Street in late 2019, the team has found a new home at Newmarket Dining, bringing the same authentic Italian flavour and cult-classic dishes diners came to expect from the original outpost. On the menu, you’ll find everything from Rigatoni Ragù with mouth-watering slow-cooked Roman ragù alongside a series of more experimental specials.
Redfern’s oh-so-popular ramen eatery RaRa will also be launching their second venue at Newmarket Dining, bringing a fun and casual Japanese dining experience to the heart of Randwick. Get ready to indulge in fresh springy noodles from the venue’s on-site noodle making machine (imported directly from Japan), used to create RaRa’s signature ramen bowls. Grab a seat at the bar and prepare to be transported to the laneways of Tokyo at this bustling new bar and kitchen.
Next up is the new 2.0 concept space from the team at Cali Press. Here you’ll find the venue’s pioneering cold-pressed juices in abundance, alongside flavourful dishes that pack a nutritional punch including gourmet toasted sandwiches, superfood lattes, smoothie bowls, salad bowls and healthy dinner options. Make sure to try their Cali Harvest, featuring grilled chicken, goats feta, freshly sliced apple, brown rice, spinach and sunflower seeds.
To round out Newmarket Dining’s launch venues, you’ll also find Café Mckenzie serving specialty coffee along with Middle Eastern eats plus Barber Signature, a boutique barber serving both men and women.
Watch this space, the complete of Newmarket Dining’s venues is set to be announced in March 2020. To find out more about the precinct, click here.
