‘Bring on the 11th’: Lunch spots are filling fast at Bill Drakopoulos’ Sydney restaurants


Sydneysiders who are still deciding which restaurant to book when the city emerges from lockdown best hurry, as many high-profile venues are rapidly filling their reservations lists through to the end of the year.

The easing of COVID-19 restrictions to allow in-restaurant dining from October 11 couldn’t have come at a better time, with the warmer weather encouraging people to eat outside and by the water.

Bill Drakopoulos, who counts Ormeggio, Ripples Milsons Point and The Fenwick in Balmain as part of his Sydney Restaurant Group portfolio, told Good Food he couldn’t be happier.

Mr Drakopoulos said Ormeggio at The Spit in Mosman is already booked for many group sittings on weekends through to December.

“For most of our sites, even though they’re on the water and ideal for tourists, the cornerstone of the business is locals,” Mr Drakopoulos said.

“I have been doing this for 40 years and sharing with friends is the way to dine. Order a few dishes, engage, have fun. Bring on the 11th!”
