Recently had a dinner in the private room for 30 people with the cool and crazy chef Miguel Maestre. What a great location, great room, great food. You feel like you are on the center of New York when you are here. A fantastic restaurant

Nearby
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
