Pre-theatre dining at The Star

Get a culinary treat before taking your seat

By Native Advertising

Going to see The Book of Mormon? Then why not make your evening complete with a fabulous meal at Momofuku Seiobo, Balla or Black Bar & Grill?

The Star’s premium restaurants are offering special menus designed for theatre-goers who need to get into the Lyric Theatre in time for curtain up. It’s a great, memorable meal for people in a hurry.

Be sure to book ahead online. The Star practises the responsible service of alcohol.

Momofuku Seiobo

The first restaurant to be opened outside of New York City by global food icon David Chang, Momofuku Seiobo is a showcase for the skills of chef Paul Carmichael, who draws upon his Caribbean heritage and the bounty of Australian ingredients.

Momofuku is normally a full-tasting-menu-only proposition at $185 (worth every cent) that takes two hours to get through. But for theatre patrons the Pre-Theatre Menu, offered Tuesday to Saturday, is a four-course affair for $115 per head, seating at 6pm and getting you out by 7.30pm.

Indeed, the Pre-Theatre Menu is a great way to experience one of the city’s best restaurants at a lower price point.

Black Bar & Grill

One of the top steakhouses in town, Black Bar & Grill is where chef Dany Karam smokes premium cuts over cherry wood before grilling them over ironbark coals.

The pre-theatre menu offers a selection from the contemporary Australian grill menu and comes with an option of a two- ($70) or a three-course meal ($80). Starters include oysters, snapper ceviche and fig salad. Mains include lamb rack, barramundi, fillet 200g grass-fed Angus beef, or pumpkin and ricotta gnocchi. For dessert there’s sorbet or Rebecca’s Lemon Cake.

Balla is The Star’s slick, upmarket Italian offering, bringing a modern interpretation of traditional Italian cooking to Sydney under the command of executive chef Gabriele Taddeucci, complemented by an extensive list of Italian wines.

Balla's pre-theatre menu comes with an option of a two- or a three-course meal ($55 or $60). Choose from polenta with pork sausage ragù; oven-baked Tomino cheese; pan-fried salmon; Black Angus beef flank; pistachio semifreddo; and chocolate tart.
