The Restaurant EVERYONE’S talking about
A new food destination in Sydney has transformed Australia’s largest surviving paper mill into a stylist restaurant and community hub.
The new destination on the George’s River, in Liverpool, in Sydney’s west has been reborn as the ‘The Paper Mill Food’ – which features four restaurants under the one roof that’s attracted some of Sydney’s best chefs.
The hub is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee in the heritage-listed building.
In 1868, the Australian Paper Company opened the country’s first ever paper mill, which produced 20 tonnes a week.
The refurbishment focuses on the eclectic saw-tooth feature, which hovers over four dining experiences offered from traditional stalls, an artisanal bakery and cafe, a rotisserie, woodfire pizza kitchen, dessert carts and in-house brewery.
The 570-seat space includes period features such as original brickwork while also incorporating contemporary updates.
No detail is overlooked, with features including bespoke timber joinery, Carrara marble and custom cast iron sculpting resembling 19th-century ovens.
An expansive hand-made mosaic tile floor is a highlight of the light-filled interior.
Coronation Property has taken charge of the precinct renovations, which is part of a wider redevelopment of the area, including the construction of 882 apartments.
