Mike McEnearney’s Kitchen by Mike has cult status in the Sydney dining world. And now they’re bringing their delicious food – famed for its emphasis on seasonal local produce – to your home. The best news is, Kitchen by Mike at Home is here to stay.
From the original Kitchen by Mike Rosebery outpost where queues of eager diners would snake around the local streets for his canteen style eatery; to their Sydney Airport initiative (named best casual airport dining experience in the world); to the newer CBD location which opened in 2019, where diners can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner… it’s the focus on the best local, seasonal produce, generosity and attention to flavour that sets Kitchen by Mike apart. Menus are set daily based on what the chefs find at the markets – the common thread to all menus is seasonality, simplicity and freshness.
Executive chef and founder Mike McEnearney is also Creative Director of Sydney’s famed Carriageworks Farmers Market (which receives 5,000 visitors every Saturday). Mike has created an authentic farmer’s market in an urban environment. He nurtures over 80 New South Wales artisan producers and champions the importance of buying local and forming a relationship with the food you eat and where it is from. This provides Mike with an intimate knowledge of New South Wales’ most exciting and diverse producers and allows him first pick to work with ingredients from across the region for both his CBD
restaurant Kitchen by Mike and Kitchen by Mike at Home.
