Emirates Leisure Retail Australia (ELRA) will launch Kitchen By Mike in the newly transformed Sydney Airport T1 International City View precinct in mid-February.
Kitchen By Mike’s Mike McEnearney closed the flagship venue in Rosebery in 2015, but it’s being brought back to life at the airport as a 90-seater. McEnearney will join internationally acclaimed chef, Wolfgang Puck who just opened The Bistro by Wolfgang Puck, along with Australia’s first flagship Heineken venue, Heineken House.
Kitchen by Mike will showcase an all-day menu featuring a number of the eatery’s favourites, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. Guests can expect to find at least two meat or fish dishes such as Kurobutta ham with mash and cumberland sauce; wood roasted herb chicken with carrots and salsa verde; and mackerel with asparagus and herb butter. Salads will include peach, fennel, olive and pine nut salad; green bean, fig, hazelnut and feta salad; cucumber with mirin and sesame; wood fired pumpkin with nigella seeds; avocado with black bean vinaigrette; and watermelon and heirloom tomatoes with chilli salt.
McEnearney has also created Fly By Mike carry on tray-packs, allowing guests to select from Kitchen by Mike salads and roast vegetables; light meat and fish dishes; homemade cakes and puddings; seasonal fruit; as well as kombucha and cold pressed juices.
There will also be a retail component, Mike at Home, selling Kitchen by Mike’s jams, chutneys and sauces, keep-cups and cookbooks.
Kitchen By Mike will be located at Sydney Airport T1 International, Pier B between Gates 10-24. It will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 6am until 10pm.
