From their much loved, big-windowed, minimalist decor to their epic Game of Thrones themed feasts, Gastro Park has proved their slogan, "a fairground of deliciousness", rings true for Sydneysiders for six years now. In bittersweet news, this year will mark the next phase for the two-hatted venue, which will close its doors on May 20 and be replaced with a new venture by executive chef Grant King (Gault Millau Chef of the Year 2017).

"We've had a fantastic six years as Gastro Park and are proud of what we've achieved [but] the ethos has evolved and we want to do something more representative of that," Gastro Park representatives told Concrete Playground.

For those who have yet to experience Gastro Park, there's still time to dig into their seven- or ten-course tasting menu ($140–$170 per person) and, our personal favourite a la carte item, the liquid butternut gnocchi mushroom consommé ($30). We sincerely hope this delectable dish is resurrected in King's new venue.

While the team is keeping details of the new venture close-to-chest for the time being, we've been promised further details in the coming weeks. It will surely be a distinct departure from Gastro Parks, but we've got our fingers crossed that the new digs and venue-mantra will leave room for a new wave of Game of Thrones dinners. But seriously, we'll take that gnocchi any day.

Gastro Park will close May 20 at 5-9 Roslyn Street, Potts Point.
