Four Seasons Hotel Sydney announced the launch of Mode Kitchen & Bar in July 2017 with Francesco Mannelli, ex Balla, est. and Uccello, as Head Chef.
Mode Kitchen & Bar, the latest addition to Sydney’s burgeoning CBD dining scene, will strike the perfect balance between casual bistro and fine dining and is a reflection of what guests and Sydneysiders are looking for in a contemporary dining experience today (Mode: of the moment).
Renowned Sydney design team, Luchetti Krelle has overhauled the former Pei Modern space to create a restaurant drawing from the glamour of the 1920s – velvet, polished brass, marble and leather finishes all hark back to the grand days of art deco hotels. The restaurant has also been enclosed by fluted glass to create an intimate dining room setting.
Mode Kitchen & Bar seats up to 200 guests across a mix of seating options including stools at the new central bar, a chef’s table, banquettes, lounge seating and two private dining spaces.
Mannelli has been entrusted to create a menu which delivers simple dishes executed exceptionally well, drawing from his rich experience in Australia. The best seasonal produce is a given with a roster of Mannelli’s favourite produce already on board, including calamari from South Australia, New Zealand scampi and fresh truffles from Tasmania.
Mode Kitchen & Bar is located on the ground floor of the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, near Sydney’s beautiful Circular Quay and will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. More details can be found on their website.
