Park Hyatt Sydney is celebrating its 25th anniversary this July after having introduced the concept of luxurious harbourside living in Sydney to many celebrated and discerning guests. While the hotel provides guests with elegant and luxurious accommodation, the hotel’s restaurant, The Dining Room, offers visitors a culinary journey like no other.
We recently visited Park Hyatt’s The Dining Room for what could only be described as the meal of a lifetime. From the postcard-perfect view of the Opera House to the highly attentive staff, everything about the experience was top notch. And that’s before we even got to the food.
We were recommended the Black Truffle Tasting Menu, created by executive chef Franck Detrait, and we simply had to indulge. Just reading the menu alone had us licking our lips in anticipation. The six-course meal consisted of:
1. Organic egg, mousseline & mouillette
2. Hokkaido scallop carpaccio, virgin olive oil & fleur de sel
3. Butternut pumpkin, chestnut & matured mimolette
4. O’Connor beef Rossini, Dutch cream & quince
5. Parmegiano Reggiano, aged balsamic vinegar
6. Valrhona Chocolate Caraibe, salted caramel & feuilletine
Each course was beautifully presented and even more pleasing to the palate. After each plate reached our table, we asked ourselves if it could any better…and it did. It simply tied our tongues and tickled our taste buds. Finishing with the Valrhona Chocolate Caraibe, salted caramel & feuilletine was like that encore performance that blew you away that you just didn’t expect. If you could imagine heaven in the mouth, this was it!
If you’re considering a visit and have the spare cash, we highly recommend you also try the matching wines. While we didn’t try them all, the ones we did complemented each meal perfectly. You’ll even get a sommelier that will come and pour it for you while imparting their knowledge on each glass.
Stunning views plus remarkable service plus quality food equal a highly memorable, thoroughly enjoyable experience.
