From 1 January 2016, Fresh Catering will take over as exclusive venue caterer and operator at Sydney’s The Mint and Justice & Police Museum.

The company plans to give the existing Bistro Mint on level one of The Mint a complete revitalisation while also introducing a new espresso, flower and gift retail concept on the ground floor of the historic site.

The Mint and Justice & Police Museum are part of Sydney Living Museums portfolio of historic museums, houses and gardens in NSW. In addition to this new partnership at The Mint and Justice & Police Museum, Fresh Catering is also operator of The Governors Table and exclusive caterer at Museum of Sydney, Vaucluse House Tearooms and Elizabeth Bay House.

Kristie Paul from Inochi Design Life, will oversee the transformation of the restaurant space at The Mint, working in close collaboration with the site’s operators, Sydney Living Museums. In 2014, Paul designed The Governors Table at Museum of Sydney, another Sydney Living Museums venue.

Chef Simon Collier of Vaucluse House Tearooms will serve contemporary bistro-style food for lunch on Monday to Friday, with a focus on high quality produce, while functions and events at both The Mint and Justice & Police Museum will be under the eye of Fresh Catering’s executive chef, Geoff Haviland. 

Fresh Catering’s managing director, Peter McCloskey said “We are thrilled to be joining forces with Sydney Living Museums once again and even more so in such iconic, historic destinations. This development will expand our presence and profile by adding two new retail businesses and two fabulous function and event destinations that both offer that mix of essential ingredients; uniqueness and quality.”
