Head to this slick, sophisticated restaurant for a modern interpretation of classic Japanese dishes. The pre-theatre menu delivers a tasty insight into Kazan’s wider culinary offerings, and is just $60 per person for any two courses. You can begin with miso soup and nasu dengaku (miso eggplant with green chilli and mixed nuts), and follow it up with a main dish like the tai sakamushi – sake-steamed New Zealand red snapper with ginger and shimeji soy. If you lean more to the sweet side on the taste spectrum, swap the entrée for dessert and go the chocolate fondant with coffee ice cream.
In case you hadn’t realised, the theatre and dining precinct at 25 Martin Place is now complete – and there’s no better time to experience it than when the Tony Award-winning SIX the Musical returns to Sydney by popular demand on August 26. Playing at the Theatre Royal Sydney with enhanced theatrical staging, this record-breaking musical remixes 500 years of historical heartbreak and reimagines the six Tudor wives of Henry VIII as modern pop divas.
But this high-octane, 75-minute global pop phenomenon is a production you don’t want to watch on an empty stomach. Luckily, theatregoers who head to 25 Martin Place are spoiled for choice when it comes to premium dining options. From modern Japanese to Italian and Middle Eastern, there’s a restaurant to cater for all culinary cravings. Plus, some of the city’s best bars are also located here – which is especially handy if you’re after a pre- or post-show beverage.
All of these venues offer special theatre menus, or early sittings to align with show schedules at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Sydney. So if you’re keen to experience the very best of Sydney’s cultural, entertainment and dining scene in one convenient location, look no further than 25 Martin Place.
