Parramatta. 'Eat Street' is a treat

People may well be creatures of habit but when it comes to dining out locals are prepared to try venues, other than their favourite café or restaurant, in the “Eat Street” precinct (Church Street), and other areas in the CBD and the suburbs. Some 98 per cent of respondents in a Parramatta City Council survey replied they were prepared to try a new venue among the 300 in the local government area. Some 74 per cent gave the experience an 8-10 rating. “So join us for a meal in Parramatta,” said Lord Mayor, Paul Garrard, in the 2010 Parramatta Dining Guide, which has a print run of 70,000 copies. The survey found that 80 per cent of respondents lived within a 10-kilometre radius of the Parramatta. Council’s figures show the city’s hospitality sector (hotels and restaurants) contributes $138 million annually to Parramatta’s economy.
