Quay Quarter Lanes

Quay Quarter Lanes now home to a host of Restaurants and Retailers

Quay Quarter precinct is breathing new life into once forgotten merchant laneways in Circular Quay. Over the last year, a host of retailers have opened their doors and welcomed their first guests at Sydney’s newest destination.
 
The newest resident in Quay Quarter Sydney’s burgeoning precinct is the cheekiest to date. Bar Mammoni is small but mighty with a zippy collection of laneway food and drinks shepherding you from your first cappuccino of the day to your last cocktail. Occupying just 100 sqm and with seating for 30, the majority of which is situated in the laneway, Bar Mammoni’s menu draws on the pastry prowess of Grana Bakery and cocktail concoctions of Apollonia, sister venues located next door at the already popular Hinchcliff House.
 
Other popular venues include, Bouillon l’Entrecote, which transports guests to the city of France, bringing authentic French cuisine to Circular Quay with a focus on classic, well-known dishes such as French onion soup, cheese souffle and steak frites. Authenticity is at the core and is reflected in both the menu and the décor.
Besuto, traditional Japanese Omakase restaurant is an immersive, one-of-a-kind culinary experience which takes your taste buds down a tantalising experience thanks to a trio of talented chefs, Hirofumi Fajita, Tomi Bjorck and Joel Best. From the moment you step foot into the venue to the moment you leave, Besuto’s entire intention is to create a new experience that, as they say, stays behind closed doors.  With an encompassed connection to the art community and a desire to give back, Besuto entangles its Japanese culture with that of the art world, where unusable space meets creativity and design. 
Londres 126 is a high-energy Mexican cantina and Mezcal Bar that pays tribute to regional Mexican cuisine and captures the eclectic and exuberant spirit of Frida Kahlo’s family home. Drenched in culture, creativity and imagination the food is exotic forms of Mexican gastronomy - charcoal grilled, exotic and gourmet products and a wide assortment of ceviches, fish, seafood and steaks. Drinks include the largest and most exclusively curated Mezcal bar in the southern hemisphere, artisanal cocktails, and an international wine list.
Enjoy traditional Italian gelato at Zini Contemporary Gelateria, Growing up in Bologna, Italy, the capital of artisanal gelato, founder Matteo Zini was inspired to share his genuine passion with Sydneysiders. It took him tasting countless Italian gelati, an economics degree, graduating from the renowned gelato school “GelAteneo”, and building four famous gelato parlours in Brisbane to create the innovative Zini Contemporary Gelateria’s concept, exclusive to Quay Quarter Lanes.

Humble Bakery at Quay Quarter Lanes features grab and go lunch options, such as salads, cakes and a selection of their famous sandwiches – filled with fresh locally sourced organic ingredients, on bread straight from the ovens of their Surry Hills bakery.
