Kylie Kwong has announced her iconic Sydney restaurant Billy Kwong will soon close its doors.

The Aussie chef confirmed the news on Instagram, revealing she will pursue a new dining concept in 2019.

“Billy Kwong as we know it will close so I can make way for an exciting new venture,” says Kwong. “I will be launching a completely new dining concept in my hometown of Sydney, which will celebrate my unwavering love of food, family and connection to the broader community at large. This new chapter will also facilitate the opportunity for me to further collaborate with inspiring partners both locally and abroad.”

No official word on what diners can expect just yet, but it’s reported the new venture will be smaller than Billy Kwong and offer a casual style of dining. The chef has also confirmed she will be collaborating with designer Khai Liew on the space.

Billy Kwong will remain open until a new tenant is secured for the Potts Point location.
