With cuisines from Italy- France and the Middle East we are spoilt for choice in this part of inner-city Sydney.The main streets of this precinct are a mix of commercial and residential buildings. Elegant restored pubs stand next to on-trend cafes with street seating and restaurants with secret lush courtyards hidden out the back. Favoured by professional creatives and locals for breakfast- lunch and dinner there is always a new special or cocktail to discover. There's a relaxed vibe with fabulous fashion and interior store windows competing for our eye as we stroll down Crown Street taking in the scene.Group discounts available now - see our website for detailsCOVID Safety measuresWe are limiting our group size to 6 guestsEnjoying 3 courses instead of 4 coursesBooking separate Uber's for guests & guide for pick-upPracticing social distancing on the walk between venuesDining at restaurants that adhere to the 4 square measure rule between tablesIndulging in a sit-down dessert - with sparkling - instead of lining-up for gelato (sorry Riva Reno & Messina - we will be back!)Giving a complimentary bottle of Sydney Distillery sanistiser to each guest on arrivalPlus of course we are packing masks in case you forgot yours!
