What was once the famed Summit Restaurant (oops – I said it) is now the beautifully re-modelled O Bar and Dining. Internationally renowned chef and owner Michael Moore is the driving force behind the venture, which has been re-designed with simple, plush interiors and a stylish palette of chocolate browns, silvers and black. What hasn’t changed, however, is the famous 360 view, which captures the glamour and excitement of our beautiful city.
On Wednesday night, the Best Restaurant team headed to the iconic Harry Seidler-designed Australia Square to celebrate the launch this stunning space. It was indeed a star-studded affair with Kerri Anne Kennerley, Kurt Pengilly, Jane Flemming and Layne Beachley joining in the celebrations. Chef Moore briefly chatted to the vivacious crowd, thanking his family and warning the crowd that anybody who uses the word “Summit” is banned from the premises.
As the crowd explored the new O Bar space, including an incredible revolving outer floor, guests were introduced to a range of dishes from the Moore’s revamped menu. Drawing inspiration from the healthy eating philosophy from Moore’s latest cookbook Blood Sugar ($45), guests sampled sesame crusted salmon tataki with quinoa salad, beef capaccio with house mustard and sprouts and a selection of crisp corn tacos.
