Westfield Newmarket announces food partners

Scentre Group has unveiled three new food partners for its $790 million Westfield Newmarket development, which will open 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 will offer an all-day casual dining offer including a speciality pizza menu, a premium beer, wine and cocktail list, coffee and a dedicated gin garden with a specialised gin menu. Something & Social will sit alongside White + Wong’s’ new concept restaurant and bar that was announced late last year.

“We share the same dedication to delivering exceptional social experiences so the partnership with Scentre Group was a natural fit for us,” said Chester Hospitality director Paul Lomax. “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’ 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.

“Exceptional dining and leisure experiences are an essential part of our living centre offering,” said Scentre Group Director, Leasing & Retail Solutions and New Zealand Development, John Papagiannis. “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.”
