Paris comes to Sydney in the latest dining space to open in the CBD, Bistro Mint.

Located on the first floor of Sydney’s historic Mint building, the bistro offers a modern take on French cuisine for breakfast and lunch.

At the official opening of Bistro Mint this week, heritage minister Rob Stokes said the new space presented an engaging way for locals and visitors to experience Sydney’s heritage.

“The opening of Bistro Mint in Sydney’s oldest public building is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate and protect the building’s heritage while also supporting new business opportunities.”

Bistro Mint is the result of a close partnership between the Historic Houses Trust and Restaurant Associates.

Its unpretentious fare, contemporary styling, organic and seasonal produce offers guests a delicious slice of France to escape to during the day.

The beautifully restored venue appeals to all diners – from shoppers and city workers to tourists and business people.

“The newly opened Bistro Mint is the result of an extensive, yet sensitive refurbishment of the first floor of The Mint,” director of the Historic Houses Trust, Mark Goggin, said.

Bistro Mint also offers an exclusive private dining and events space, delivering a unique setting and dining experience for social and corporate events.

Bistro Mint, 10 Macquarie Street, is open Monday to Friday for breakfast and lunch from 8am to 4pm.
