It will finally swing open its doors at the Parramatta Square development on October 21, and it won't be alone.
Chatter on Parramatta eat streets that it would be joined by a new restaurant from the team behind Surry Hills' venues Nour and Henrietta proved on the money. Its new Asian restaurant in Parra will be named LilyMu.
While Parramatta hasn't proved a happy hunting ground for all operators – Jamie Oliver and Chophouse are among those to have abandoned the postcode – there have been success stories, bar-tsar Sven Almenning's Nick & Nora's among the stayers.
CicciaBella and LilyMu will have plenty of company. Rivareno Gelato is also headed into Parramatta Square, and Fishbowl and Betty's Burgers have already swung open their doors.
