Parramatta Park Is Now Home to Misc, a Sleek 300-Seat Venue From Jad Nehmetallah and Joel Bennetts
There's something for everyone at this expansive new Western Sydney restaurant.
November 21, 2022
An impressive 300-seat restaurant has arrived in Parramatta Park, offering hearty breakfast and vibrant lunch dishes until 4pm, seven days a week. Misc. comes from a trio of Sydney mainstays — Executive Chef Sebastian Geray, Menu Collaborator Joel Bennetts and Restaurateur Jad Nehmetallah, the last of which you may recognise from Gogglebox. Together they've created an approachable all-day menu inspired by Mediterranean dishes and flavours.
Misc. arrives at an exciting time for Parramatta, bringing another top-notch hospitality offering to the bustling suburb that's seen a slew of restaurants open in recent years including the sleek new dining precinct Parramatta Square. Boasting both indoor and al fresco dining and a bright white beachy fit-out, the glossy Western Sydney restaurant is hoping to differentiate itself by offering a one-stop-shop for your morning coffee, your next group lunch booking or an afternoon drink.
"Western Sydney has been waiting for a spot to proudly call their own. At Misc., we offer an unmatched dining experience, partly due to our wine cocktail list never seen before in the western suburbs, as well as a beautiful retail section with curated products from local and international providers alike. Whether you desire a picnic in the park or bottomless brunch, Misc. can make it happen," says Nehmetallah.
Whether you're here for breakfast or lunch, the team highly recommends that you start with bread. The house-made focaccia is a star of the breakfast menu, ready to be paired with dips like hummus or labneh, or sides like bacon, fritters and mushrooms.
On the lunch menu, you'll find plenty of shared starters to pick from, including oysters, mortadella, burrata or wood-fired pita bread. From there you can add in the likes of beef tartare, king prawns, barramundi, zucchini chips and angus sirloin.
"The focus is on the food and what it means to different people," Nehmetallah continues. "It's in my blood to bring people together; to create family, fun and full stomachs. Now I'm doing it on a larger scale."
Misc. is located at Bynes Avenue, Parramatta Park, Parramatta. It's open 8am–4pm Monday–Sunday.
