A popular new restaurant has opened in the heart of Sydney’s bustling CBD.
Read moreThe restaurant, The Dining Room, has just opened in Fitzroy’s Kensington Market and it is a popular spot for tourists.
The dining room is located on the corner of George Street and Pakenham Street, and is set between two shops.
The owner of the business, Matthew Deans, said the restaurant would be a “great place for families to enjoy a nice, casual meal”.
“We’ll definitely have family groups and couples as well,” he said.
“I think there’s just going to be a lot of fun in the dining room.
We’ve got the main room where you can relax with your family, or a group can get together and have a great meal.”
The restaurant is a small business, but the owners said they were determined to open it for people.
“We’re just really excited to be opening up here and hopefully get some more families to come in and have an experience,” he told the ABC.
“It’s just something that’s really fun for the kids.”
It will be open from 8pm until midnight, and you can book online.
Deans said the concept of the restaurant was to provide “a fun, casual, relaxed environment”.
“There’s just a lot to do around the dining area, so it’s really easy to get in and out of,” he added.
“So, the kids can wander around, there’s a small kids’ area, there is also a little children’s play area, and we have an adult lounge area that’s open to all.”
The Docking Street area will also be open for lunchtime business, he said, and customers can use the restaurant’s “friendly” bouncers.
There is also an outdoor seating area and a “shopping cart” which will be available.
Deants said the owners were also looking to expand the restaurant into a “bakery” to make it more accessible for the community.
“The kids really love that place, so we’ll definitely be trying to add some more food, but we just want to make sure that we give the kids something to do and have fun with,” he explained.
“They’ll also be able to come and enjoy the view and enjoy their lunch.”
Deans has been working with the local council to develop a menu that would appeal to families and the children.
“If you’re a family, I think we can cater to that,” he shared.
“Our focus will be really on the kids and then we’ll make sure they have a good experience with it.”
Deants hopes to open in the summer, and he said he would like to add more restaurants to the city’s food scene.
“There is a great dining room, and there are a lot more places that we can do it, and it’s something we can build on,” he continued.
“This is just something we’re really excited about.”
