In lieu of an overseas trip, why not explore the bounty of what our city has to offer? An unbeatable coffee culture, a dynamic shopping scene, and collective boundary-pushing restaurants and bars - Newmarket truly is the purveyor of all things new and exciting.
Chic industrial designed interiors, widescreen views, confident and unique eateries; from every angle, Newmarket’s Westfield is well-considered and well-executed. The arrival of this new addition has undoubtedly, reinvigorated the city’s shopping experience, but it needn’t be a one-stop-shop and there’s plenty to be discovered further afield. Here are a few of Remix’s favourite haunts…
Every good shopper needs sustenance to go the distance, so it’s only natural that this gives way to a fresh crop of eateries dishing up some of the cities best. Amongst them is Nonna, an Italian eatery famed for its homemade pasta, but also a silent-achiever in the breakfast realm. You’ll find steadfast classics like salmon and avocado smash amongst more adventurous offerings such as ‘Eggs in Purgatory’ which sees a cassoulet of beans served with Italian sausage, goats cheese and olive oil.

Level 5/309 Broadway
Nic Watt’s INCA is bringing a slice of authentic Peruvian cuisine to Newmarket’s rooftop terrace. There is a lot to love about this menu, but if you’re after the star dish, there really is no need to read on past the ‘ceviche’ and
