Romeo’s first European-inspired food hall to open next month

Romeo’s Retail Group is preparing to open Sydney’s first Locali by Romeo’s food hall at 388 George Street.

The European-inspired fresh food hall will open mid-March. A second Locali by Romeo’s, announced last week, will open mid-year at Brookfield Place Sydney.

Situated in the lower level of 388 George Street, the new store will have pedestrian access provided via both King and George Streets.

The Group has signed a 15-year lease for approximately 1600sqm of space and will deliver a contemporary fresh food market featuring a walk-in cheese room, commercial kitchen, dine-in café and restaurant, sushi bar, meat and fish offering, continental delicatessen, nut bar, salumi bar, authentic fresh pizza, Italian bakery, florist, and a liquor store (offering wine tastings).

“Our unique in-store experience of fresh food and dine-in options is strongly supported by our niche, locally-sourced products which support Australian farmers and producers,” says Romeo Retail Group owner and Director Joseph Romeo. “This is complemented by our unique global range.”

The $200 million transformation project of 388 George Street was completed in November last year.

Brookfield Properties Executive Vice President and Co-Head Danny Poljak says the Romeo family is innovating the way Sydneysiders and CBD workers view their local grocer.

“With Locali by Romeo’s, they are really carving out a niche in the Sydney market by providing outstanding food and beverage choice combined with everyday essentials and amenity,” he says.
