Esteban evolves with modern Mexican eats and live Latin American music

Live music was hard to come by all throughout last year in Sydney, for obvious reasons, but now a swift return to in-the-flesh sounds of all kinds is back on the cards. We’ve already seen Sydney come to life with a new outdoor concert series, and now one of the city’s best new Mexican restaurants is getting in on the action.

Albeit its a bit more niche, and squeezed into a CBD laneway.

Esteban, the new laneway Mexican restaurant just a stone’s throw from Wynyard Station, is now going to be hosting live Latin American music every Thursday-Saturday night over the next three months.

Featuring Latin-inspired performances, there will be a rolling program of Samba bands, tango artists, Cuban acoustic artists, sultry Salsa solos, a Rumba and Funk trio playing over 20 instruments, and much more.

In addition to the music program guests will also enjoy an innovative dining menu showcasing authentic Mexican dishes while seated in the vibrant, alfresco laneway area or across the split-level indoor venue.

The menu designed by Executive Group Chef John Frid, whose culinary career spans 24+ years in the kitchen, showcases regional dishes and traditional Mexican cooking techniques, demonstrating the versatility of Mexican cuisine and its influencers – ranging from Mayan, Aztec, Spanish and Portuguese, to Afro Caribbean. Incorporating Australian native ingredients and locally sourced, sustainable produce, Frid and his team have created a menu of sophisticated dishes which boast many elements made in-house.
