Pei Modern will open in Sydney on October 15, 2014. This follows on from the opening of the flagship Melbourne restaurant in 2012.
Chef Mark Best said, “I’m incredibly excited to open Pei Modern in an iconic location of my beautiful home town. Pei Modern Sydney will respond to the local environment, location, customer and produce. I’m excited to get into this amazing kitchen and cook from the wood fired grill and oven.”
Pei Modern Melbourne founding chef Matt Germanchis and maitre d’ Ainslie Lubbock have both migrated north for the opening of the new restaurant, along with signature dishes such as Sauternes custard and Jerusalem artichoke with duck egg and truffle.
Architect Helen Rice, who worked on Grain Bar, will oversee the transformation of the ground-floor space.
Rudolf van Dijk, general Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Sydney said, “We’re delighted to welcome Pei Modern to Four Seasons. We know Mark, Matt and Ainslie will truly deliver a world-class bistro that all Sydneysiders and hotel guests will enjoy.”
Pei Modern Sydney will be open for lunch, Monday to Friday and dinner Monday to Saturday.
