Culinary journey at Star City The launch of Sean’s Kitchen in September is set to revitalise the Pyrmont dining scene with its sumptuous interiors, inspiring cuisine and theatrical presentation. Signalling a new style of dining, Sean’s Kitchen encourages customers to rediscover the art of eating, whether through a quick encounter at the bar, the comfort of table dining, or for a casual plate of Jamon in the tapas lounge. After scouring the globe for inspiration Sean Connolly (current SMH Chef of the Year) brings his passion for the finest produce and clean Mediterranean flavours to this new venture. “For me, great food is all about fantastic ingredients,” he said. “From the best Jamon sourced from Seville, to the freshest Australian seafood I want to present simple, clean flavours perfectly cooked.” This philosophy is evident in Sean’s Kitchen menu, where prime cuts of steak are on offer alongside line caught snapper, slow cooked seasonal dishes, freshly baked bread and indulgent desserts. Open from breakfast to supper, prices range from $14 for a plate of crispy prawns in the tapas bar, to $400 for a signature Fruit de Mer grande, featuring rock lobster, ocean trout sashimi, soused sardines and Balmain bugs. With Mediterranean classics such as the Seafood Paella on offer alongside a 200g Oakleigh Ranch Wagyu tenderloin, Sean’s Kitchen is the missing link to the current Star City dining options - the $6m investment a clear sign of Star City’s ongoing commitment to revitalise the area. General manager of hotel food and beverage, Richard Munro, says this restaurant represents the first major step in Star City’s plan to change Star City into a true dining destination. “With Astral already well established as one of Sydney’s top restaurants, we believe Sean’s Kitchen will give diners another exciting destination within Star City,” he says. Sean’s Kitchen is set to open in Star City in September. Officially launching its residential promotion for PCOs, pictured with the “talent” is Alison Hammill, general manager of Global 1 Training.
