New restaurant & concept store launching at The Mint


From April, we are excited to welcome Studio Neon, led by renowned chef Aaron Teece and events director Lauren MacDougall, as the new hospitality partner for The Mint store, restaurant and events.

Following a long stint at London’s prestigious Harvey Nichols’ 5th Floor Restaurant, Aaron returned to Australia to cook in the kitchens of some of Sydney’s finest establishments, including Est., Sean’s Kitchen, Felix and Manly Pavilion. A pioneer of the foraged food movement in Australia, he swiftly became the go-to chef for food education workshops and tours.

In 2011 Aaron set up his own business, Studio Neon, specialising in creating memorable food and drink experiences. Studio Neon’s impressive client list of leading brands includes Louis Vuitton, Acne Studios, Gucci and Ferrari among others.  

Aaron and his team also produce Sunday Sous Sessions, a new month-long series of intimate Sunday dinners, where sous chefs from some of Sydney's most well-known kitchens design their own five-course degustation menus inspired by their culinary journey.

The team at Studio Neon is currently developing a pop-up coffee offering prior to launching its innovative new concept store and restaurant at The Mint in the coming months.
