Something for everyone at 277
The Scentre Group has unveiled three new food partners for its $790 million Westfield Newmarket development, providing a taste of fresh food and dining offering to underpin the flagship living centre when it opens later this year.
Something & Social, a new concept from the team behind Auckland’s award-winning drinking and dining space, Pilkingtons, has been confirmed as the latest venue for Westfield Newmarket’s rooftop dining precinct. Something & Social promises to deliver “something for everyone”, with an all-day casual dining offer including a speciality pizza menu, a great premium beer, wine and cocktail list, coffee and a dedicated Gin garden with a specialised Gin menu. Something & Social will be in great company at Rooftop on Broadway, alongside White + Wong’s’ new concept restaurant and bar that was announced late last year.
Commenting on the partnership, Director Chester Hospitality, Paul Lomax said: “We share the same dedication to delivering exceptional social experiences so the partnership with Scentre Group was a natural fit for us.
“We are looking forward to opening our all-day concept at Westfield Newmarket and are confident the casual vibe we are creating with Something & Social will make it a regular for locals – a great place to catch up with friends for a drink or a bite to eat with family.”
Meanwhile, popular free-range rotisserie chicken eatery Bird on a Wire will bring ‘good vibes only’ to the centre’s fresh food market. Bird on a Wire currently has restaurants in Orakei, Takapuna, Ponsonby and will soon open in Tauranga, making Westfield Newmarket Bird on a Wire’s fifth eatery.
Finally, specialty Asian supermarket Tai Ping will open its 10th Auckland store in the fresh food precinct at Westfield Newmarket.
Scentre Group Director, Leasing & Retail Solutions and New Zealand Development, John Papagiannis, said: “Exceptional dining and leisure experiences are an essential part of our living centre offering. We are pleased to be working with some of New Zealand’s hottest hospitality brands including Something & Social, Bird on a Wire and Tai Ping to offer a combination of new food and dining concepts all under the one roof at Westfield Newmarket.” “We are looking forward to delivering an unparalleled fresh food and dining experience for our customers at Westfield Newmarket,” he said.
Westfield Newmarket is set to deliver a world-class retail and lifestyle destination in the heart of Auckland. The flagship New Zealand centre will feature a compelling mix of local and international designers, new-to-market brands and some of the most well-known retailers from New Zealand and Australia. A rooftop lifestyle, dining and entertainment precinct will encompass some of the country’s finest food and beverage experiences in a vibrant outdoor environment.
