Fast Festival Feasts, 2016 Sydney Festival

When the flames on the pudding have been extinguished and the ham's down to its last slices, we can start to focus on what's really important: cramming as much fun as possible into the New Year. Hello, Sydney Festival.

From 7 to 26 January, Sydney gets its groove on with art, theatre, dance and music performances popping up all over the city as part of the annual festival. And with all those high kicks, you're bound to work up an appetite.

Balla, La Rosa the Strand and Regatta are just some of the eateries bringing the noise to the Fast Festival Feasts program, which sees nearly 30 restaurants around the city offering special $30, $55 and à la carte menu deals for the month of January.

Enjoy Meow Meow's Little Mermaid in the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, with a side of pork polpettine at La Rosa the Strand pre-show or post-show ($55 for two courses and a glass of wine). And after participating in Olivier Grossetête's installation The Ephemeral City at Barangaroo's Cutaway Park, you could grab a quick glass of wine and a tasting plate of cured meats, pickles and grissini at Walsh Bay Kitchen ($30), or dip into a host of other options at the likes of Sokyo and Red Lantern on Riley.

Roll on 2016.

For the full program, see sydneyfestival.org.au/fff.
