Husk & Vine Kitchen and Bar to Open in Parramatta

Husk & Vine Kitchen and Bar is set to open in early July in Parramatta, headed by ex-Flying Fish chef Stephen Seckold.

Husk & Vine

Occupying the former site of the Wheatsheaf Hotel, Husk & Vine sits alongside a public display showcasing the remains of an 1840’s convict hut, Wheelwright’s workshop and the cellar of the Wheatsheaf – all discovered during excavation of the site. These historical artefacts have been preserved in an outdoor archaeological display, complete with a glass floor viewing platform that restaurant guests and members of the public can observe.

The cuisine by Head Chef Ashley Brennan  pays homage to the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cultural influences that of Parramatta and the surrounding area. Expect flatbreads and pides, as well as roast, large cuts of meat and whole birds for guests to share, such as whole lamb shoulders with harissa, okra and chickpea stew.

The drinks list focuses on boutique wineries, small producers from Australia and abroad – with a concentration on Australian cool climate wines, as well as French and Italian classics. Cocktails use a range of native ingredients such as eucalyptus and lemon myrtle in house-blended syrups, with a strong low and non-alcoholic drinks menu.

The interiors were created by Nic Graham with timber, leather and linen accents, while sandstones appear suspended in a mirrored infinity grid around a double-height void, a nod to the venue’s rock foundations.

Husk & Vine sits within a precinct that is also home to the V by Crown Group apartments, and SKYE Hotel Suites, Parramatta’s first luxury five-star offering, which opens on August 1.

Husk & Vine Kitchen and Bar is slated to open in July 2017.
