When you think of Sydney Tower, shopping, sightseeing and school excursions may come to mind. But add "fabulous dining experience" to that list. Thanks to a six-month renovation, the Sydney Tower Dining precinct is once again a gleaming new jewel atop Sydney's tallest structure.
Eighty-one floors above Sydney sits Infinity at Sydney Tower, which reopens under the aegis of executive chef Darren Templeman. Templeman brings to the role 34 years of experience in renowned establishments throughout the UK, Singapore and Sydney, including Michelin-starred restaurants. Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and Bruno Loubet are among the culinary icons Templeman has had the honour of working under.
Templeman’s Modern Australian cooking nods to Mediterranean and Japanese influences and his ever-changing menu is crafted with a strong ‘farm-to-table’ philosophy. Expect the likes of Wagyu "sukiyaki", seared scallops and foie gras, WA marron with bush tomato butter, and black barley with wood ear mushrooms, ginger and shallot broth.
This is fare with enough pulling power to compete with what’s outside the window – because the views are truly something else from up here. On a clear day, you can see clear to the Blue Mountains and out to the Pacific. So imagine the sense of prestige and occasion this venue could bring to your festive get-together. Infinity is open for Christmas Eve Dinner as well as Christmas Day Lunch and NYE Dinner and is now taking reservations.
Christmas Eve is three courses à la carte for $125; five courses with a guaranteed window table and glass of sparkling on arrival is $185; and six courses with a guaranteed window table and a glass of Champagne on arrival is $210. Christmas Day lunch is three courses for $185 (or $199 for a window table).
New Year's Eve at Infinity (for 18+ only) is $600 for six courses with matching wines and the city's highest viewing point for the fireworks. All this plus a guaranteed window table is $650.
The launch of Infinity, together with the opening of new sister venues SkyFeast and Bar 83, marks a reset for Sydney Tower Dining’s food and bar offerings. It’s apparent these high-altitude venues are aiming to offer a food experience that’s every bit on the same elevated level as the world-class views.
