Restaurant
“Moor Newcastle East brings to you an eclectic fare with fresh and aromatic flavours stemming from Middle Eastern, Spanish and North African influences. The concept is simple: food that is unassuming, fresh and unique with a sharing-style menu that allows for conversational, collaborative dining. At Moor, we also love coffee. We believe with carefully selected beans together with skilled baristas and a whole lot of love, the coffee will speak for itself. Within the city centre and a stone's throw from Newcastle main beach, Moor Newcastle East is the creation of two local chefs, Graham Sincock and Shane Brunt. ”
