Western Sydney’s world-class dining precinct, the $2.7 billion Parramatta Square, is set to welcome two new eateries as City of Parramatta Council launches its search for innovative food and beverage entrepreneurs.

Expressions of interest are now open for experienced operators to run a café in Council’s iconic new community, cultural and civic building, 5 Parramatta Square, and a restaurant with al fresco dining in the refurbished Town Hall, known as 7 Parramatta Square.

New images released today offer a first look at the soon-to-come dining hotspots, which will serve up healthy, modern cuisine to thousands of workers, residents and visitors each day. 

“Parramatta Square is a bustling dining precinct in the heart of the CBD, boasting some of the best restaurants in Australia, and the food offerings at 5 & 7 Parramatta Square will be just as fantastic,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Bob Dwyer said.

“We’re looking for exceptional food and beverage operators to transform 5 & 7 Parramatta Square into foodie destinations, dishing out healthy meals and memorable dining experiences in the centre of global Sydney.

“We are excited to partner with gutsy and dynamic food entrepreneurs to create vibrant, accessible and welcoming spaces where people from all walks of life can meet and eat.”

5 & 7 Parramatta Square are set to open mid-2022.

The $130 million 5 Parramatta Square will contain a state-of-the-art public library, cultural spaces, and community meeting rooms. The ground-floor café will offer a healthy menu throughout the day, with a mix of full service a la carte, fast table service, counter service, and grab and go.

The revitalised Town Hall will feature a new function and event space, meeting rooms, and an upgraded Main Hall. Serving a creative menu, the restaurant in Jubilee Hall will offer all-day al fresco dining in a heritage setting, with the potential for a licensed bar.

Parramatta Square is a three-hectare precinct in the Parramatta CBD with award-winning architecture, commercial towers, premium-grade office space, civic facilities, retailers, first-class restaurants, and a large welcoming public domain.
