The plan to take Quay to greater heights

The plan to take Quay to greater heights

Quay will temporarily close its doors on 19th March 2018 for three months whilst it undergoes a major renovation to the restaurant and kitchen. Quay’s dining experience will also undergo extensive changes including a complete transformation of the menu as well as changes to the service and guest interaction with the aim of taking Quay to even greater heights.

“Quay has long been at the forefront of Australian dining”, says John Fink, Creative Director of the Fink Group.“ Peter Gilmore is at the peak of his creative abilities, and he is showing no signs of slowing down. Peter’s creative skills are inspiring us to push Quay’s fine dining experience to a next level. This is an opportunity to take a fresh look at how we do fine dining.” With a state of the art kitchen and revamped dining room, Quay will offer a tasting menu only experience for the first time. Whilst Quay’s menu has had endless reinvention over the years, the renovation will give Peter the opportunity to reinvent his food for the new space.

“After 16 years of Quay in its current form, this new incarnation will give me the opportunity to fulfil even greater aspirations for my food” says Peter Gilmore. “This new chapter will facilitate a long held desire to take the diner on an even more personal dining experience. My aim is to create a more interactive journey representing my own culinary evolution.” The menu reinvention will see Quay say goodbye to some of Peter’s most defining dishes but will the snow egg carry its legacy through to the new Quay? “This is a time of change and I want to be looking forward,” answers Peter.

The Fink Restaurant Group is working with TZG architects on the renovation, the same firm responsible for Bennelong and OTTO Brisbane. The look and feel of the restaurant will be more in line with Peter Gilmore’s approach to food – nature, texture, intensity and purity. “Today, dining is not only about what is on the plate but also what is around you, we want there to be a natural thread linking Peter’s food with the room.” says John.

The restaurant will be repositioned to open up dining on the Harbour Bridge side and will feature a series of small dining spaces around the restaurant. “We want to rethink how we do fine dining at Quay. Currently we can seat 100 guests, with the new layout we will reduce numbers and create intimate dining pockets allowing us to take the dining experience up to a wonderful new level. All decisions will be based on creating the best possible dining experience,” says John. The event spaces at Quay will also undergo a transformation with extra amenities and a dedicated open kitchen.

Reservations are open until the restaurant temporarily closes its doors in late March giving diners the last opportunity to experience Quay in its current form. A series of retrospective events with Peter will also be announced in the lead up to the renovation.

World’s 50 Best

World’s 50 Best

Ahead of the prestigious World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 awards, Quay has been named at number 95 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 51-100 list.  For nine consecutive years, Quay has been included in the top 100 restaurants, with five of those years spent in the top 50.

Hosted by Tourism Australia and state partner, Visit Victoria, the highly anticipated World’s 50 Best Restaurants arrives in Australia on Saturday, 1 April with a talk featuring Executive Chef Peter Gilmore at the Sydney Opera House.

Says Peter Gilmore: “We are absolutely thrilled to be on the list again this year. It’s just such a huge privilege to be listed amongst such icons of the industry. We’re also incredibly grateful to the Quay team who work so hard every day…they are the reason we’ve made it onto the list again.”

Tourism Australia Managing Director John O’Sullivan follows, “It is tremendous to once again see Quay recognised as one of the best restaurants in the world ahead of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 awards. Quay, under the stewardship of chef Peter Gilmore, truly reflects the culinary excellence that can be achieved through the combination of Australia’s incredible people, abundant fresh produce and spectacular natural environment – these are the attributes that also underpin our global Restaurant Australia campaign which Peter has been a key part of since 2014.”

Quay first broke onto the list in 2009 debuting at number 46, then No 27 in 2010, No 26 at 2011, No 29 in 2012, No 48 in 2013, No 60 in 2014, No 58 in 2015 and No 98 in 2016. In 2010, Quay was named The Best Restaurant in Australasia, and held onto the title for three years. With its stunning nature-based cuisine and breathtaking Sydney harbour setting, Quay is one Australia’s most awarded restaurants, and has maintained three hats in The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide and three stars in the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide for 15 years in a row. Last year Quay was named Restaurant of the Year in The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.
