Wellington NZ's pop up restaurant 'WLG' coming to Sydney (23 Aug 2010)

Wellington coming to Sydney

It looks like the next pop up restaurant to create a feeding frenzy in Sydney will be 'WLG' which TimeOutSydney reports. The restaurant is aims to promote some of the best chefs from Wellington including food, wines, baristas and waiters. Basically it will be $29 per person for entree share platter, main course, dessert and coffee — sounds like a bargain to me. I'm sure it will be very popular and if the New Zealand Stand at the Taste of Sydney 2010 is anything to go by I'm really looking forward to sampling the quality of what New Zealand has to offer. I'm glad this event isn't as secretive as the King's Vault Pop Up Bar and more honest about its intention than the Hidden Pizza in Melbourne.

Set price meal is $29 for 3 courses including coffee. Glasses of wine $7. Sittings from 6 pm each day. Walk-up customers are welcome although booking is advised.

Wine bar
From 5 pm weekdays, 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Wine bar price is $15 for the three most popular mini-burgers from the Burger Wellington competition, which is held annually in Wellington as part of the Wellington on a Plate festival, plus matching wine. Walk up customers are welcome.

Advance bookings
• WLG will be open from Tue 14 to Sun 26 Sep
• 8 seating times per day - 6 pm, 6.15, 6.30, 6.45 and 8 pm, 8.15, 8.30 and 8.45
• Maximum 6 persons per booking
• If you do not arrive within 15 minutes of your booking, your table will be released
• Walk up places, first come first served, have been kept for each day and for the wine bar from 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays

I think Matthew (above) is thinking this will be in Melbourne. It's in Sydney, Matthew. If you look at the photo on the Time Out link you'll see the side of my head next to Anna Tait-Jamieson on the right! It was a great preview to what we'll have in Sydney

Aww Welly! I grew up there :D I wonder if they'll ever do this in Melbourne. It definitely sounds like a bargain - look forward to reading about your experience!

hi matthew, thanks for the compliment and reading my blog. let's certainly hope the pop up restaurant is a successful one and they do it right.

hi john, i wonder if they'll do something similar in Melbourne. probably only a matter of time.

hi agnes, i reckon it's only a matter of time before they do it in Melbourne as well. Sydney might just be a test run for other cities perhaps? :-)
