Our selection of the one-day Open For Lunch festival in Sydney


Kylie Kwong’s Hokkien Noodles at South Eveleigh’s Alfresco Disco
Kwong is the ambassador of an all-day open-air nightclub in the heart of Sydney’s former industrial heart – and she will also delight party-goers with her spectacular Canton-Australian cuisine. Your $ 30 ticket includes not only admission to the event, but also a plate of food from Kwong’s Lucky Kwong Restaurant and an equally impressive cocktail Matt Whiley, owner of zero waste bar Re–. We’ll opt for a plate of sublime Hokkien noodles from Kwong, which sees raw king mackerel hiramasa meet sticky pork. The chef’s enthusiasm for the local community is demonstrated in the native herbs that dress the noodles: they are grown on site, in the native rooftop garden of South Eveleigh.
South Eveleigh’s open-air nightclub is open from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Get tickets.

Prince of York Long Lunch at Barrack Street
YCK Laneways (the congregation of bars around York, Clarence and Kent streets) is also getting into the action, with a series of pop-ups and on-site parties during the day. Our choice ? A Japanese-inspired white linen lunch hosted by the fun Prince of York bar and restaurant on Barrack Street. The Traffic Free Artery will become a dinner for 125 people in two seats, with guests feasting on 10 courses, plus a cocktail on arrival and assorted drinks. Don’t sleep on salmon and trout sashimi with yuzu kosho (aromatic chili pasta) or a heavily marbled portion of Wagyu with tangy wasabi.
The Prince of York’s long lunch takes place at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. Get tickets.

Fixed menu of Cicciabella at the Long Table Lunch in Parramatta Square
As George Street diners settle in for lunch, 400 punters will simultaneously set up a bench for a long table lunch in the sparkling new neighborhood of Parramatta Square. Choose from a three-course menu from Ruse Bar & Brasserie, Lilymu or Cicciabella. And with the tireless restaurateur Maurice Terzini at the helm of Cicciabella, this is where we put our money. The Italian trattoria will begin with a tangy tangerine spritz, followed by an antipasto to start and a main course of leg of lamb stuffed with olives, herbs and pine nuts. Sign us up.
From 12 noon. Get tickets.
