New Dining Destination: Quay Quarters Lane

Eat, Sydney / 21 June 2021

Circular Quay alleyway will be brought to life with a handful of new lifestyle and dining offerings.

Many city workers have returned to the office this year and we’re all searching for the best spots for a midweek feed. Whether you’re after a grab-and-go bite or something more substantial, there are plenty of options to choose from. And now, a new dining precinct is coming to the heart of Circular Quay, due to open in September 2021.

Say hello to Quay Quarter Lanes, the first part of the city block returning to life as part of the Quay Quarter Sydney precinct. Now in its final stages of development, Quay Quarter Lanes will be welcoming a bunch of top-notch food and lifestyle brands to the heart of Circular Quay.

So, what top-notch foodie spots can you expect to be opening at Quay Quarter Lanes? First up, we have the iconic Marrickville Pork Roll – an institution for cheap-and-cheerful authentic Vietnamese eats in the inner west. This must-try spot is set to be a bustling takeaway destination for hungry CBD workers looking for a quick lunchtime bite.

Next up, you’ll find Kobo, that latest outpost from the team behind Tokki in Surry Hills and Marble in Barangaroo. Executive Chef Jacob Lee is thrilled to be part of this transformation of Circular Quay. He says, “Kobo is really the story of my life. Kobo has no rules, from a traditional Jeolla dish, to meticulous Japanese to sophisticated modern Australian.”

You’ll also find the latest outpost of Skittle Lane finding its home at Quay Quarter Lanes. For coffee fans, this spot is going to be your go-to for a delicious specialty coffee brew and a light bite. Founding Partner Jodie Foster is thrilled to be bringing both specialty coffee and a retail offering to the precinct, telling, “being part of a new urban neighbourhood, and connecting with all the residents, office workers, and weekend visitors coming to the Quay area for culture and dining will be super-exciting. Setting up shop within one of Sydney’s most iconic destinations was always part of our vision for the brand.”

The owner of the Milpa Collective, Pablo Galindo is creating a 57 seater Mexican restaurant called Londres 126. The fit-out is inspired by parties threw by artist Frida Kahlo in the 1940s. “We are putting a great deal of consideration into our cuisine to make this a wonderful new experience for Sydney-siders”, Pablo said.

From the morning coffee to afternoon gelato, you’ll be able to hit up Zini Contemporary Gelateria. “We think our unique crafted methods are perfect for the Sydney customer”.

Sweet Grana will also open which is an extension of Hinchcliff House that opened back in April 2021. The name lets us know that they will be serving all things sweet pastries and cakes, as ‘Grana’ means grain. The cafe will open from the morning, all the way through to late night for your fix.

Plus, there’s set to be many more venues opening soon with Quay Quarter set to be home to over 50 wellbeing, dining, and lifestyle spots once it’s complete in 2022.
