Taste your way round the city on this evening private tour
Gourmet Nights is part of a collection of unique and utterly compelling half day Sydney tours through the city’s streets. Each experience seamlessly combines Sydney’s colourful history, its modern and historic architecture as well as it’s eclectic food and beverage scene.
Your host for the evening will meet you at your Sydney hotel or a central spot close to circular Quay. First you’ll visit the architectural masterpiece that is Bennelong Restaurant which occupies the first sail of the Sydney Opera House. You will sit at their Cured & Cultured counter with a view of the chefs at work and indulge in a tailored tasting menu.
You’ll experience the finest Sydney rock oysters, Mooloolabah Yellowfin tuna and Red claw yabbies – all ethically, delicately and locally sourced by Head Chef Peter Gilmore.
A glass of locally produced semillon, a Hunter Valley white wine will be served to match.
Next, take a walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens and up into Potts Point where you’ll find Bistro Rex – Sydney’s hottest new eatery situated right in the heart of the ultra-trendy Potts Point. With a delicate french twist and the use of the finest Australian produce, this eatery will blow your mind in a million different ways.
Meet Head Chefs and co-owners, Michelle and Jo as they serve you your main dish for the evening as part of your gourmet journey.
Just try to choose between their Poached chicken breast confit leg with harissa broth and black olives or their classic, yet mind-blowing Steak frites. No doubt the chefs will help you make your decision and recommend a wine that will compliment their dish perfectly.
After your main dish at Bistro Rex, your host will guide you on a walk through Potts Point, Kings Cross and into Darlinghurst to Gelato Messina for dessert. Here you’ll experience possibly the best gelato ever to cross your lips in a fun, upbeat parlour space on the main street of Darlinghurst. Choose a flavour – or 3 and dive in to see what all the locals are lining up for.
And to ensure your night ends on an absolute high, let’s go for a final nightcap cocktail in Darlinghurst… on us! Your Gourmet Nights journey will end in Darlinghurst so you can stay in the area to explore further or easily make your way back to your original meeting spot.
Note – all of this tour can be done on foot. If you prefer, an UBER Black can be used to get from one destination to the next.
