Capella Hotels and Resorts is partnering with The Bentley Group on the landmark Brasserie 1930 restaurant set within Capella Sydney, preparing to launch in March 2023.
Located in the historic Sandstone Precinct of Sydney’s CBD, and the heritage-listed Department of Education building, Brasserie 1930 captures the essence of a traditional brasserie, delivered through a contemporary Australian lens. Dovetailing a sophisticated design approach with meticulously restored architectural features, the dining room will be one of the city’s most desirable destinations to experience world-class cuisine.
“Capella Sydney will be a world-class hotel and we are committed to working with the most visionary minds to create that realisation,” said Marc von Arnim, Capella Sydney’s General Manager of The Bentley Group’s Brent Savage and Nick Hildebrandt.
“Nick and Brent are two of the most talented industry leaders in the country. Our Capella Sydney Executive Chef, Gabriele Taddeucci and Head Chef, Niroshan Richards are thrilled to be working in partnership with the accomplished duo to showcase the magic of The Bentley Group within Brasserie 1930.”
Brasserie 1930 will offer guests a menu of modern brasserie fare, that will hero small, independent farmers and growers to celebrate the best of Australian produce. Cooking methods will draw upon age-old techniques such as curing, smoking, fermenting, preserving and pickling with a charcoal grill becoming the theatrical centrepiece of the open kitchen.
“We are really excited to be partnering with Capella to open Brasserie 1930,” Savage said. “The heritage dining room is one of the most beautiful we’ve seen, and our intention is to create a Sydney institution. The menu will hero brasserie classics done our way.”
Hildebrandt’s wine program will champion new and interesting producers along with iconic Australian and European labels. The wine list will also tap into The Bentley Group’s aged cellar drawn from The Bentley Wine Vault, offering rare and aged wines to be savoured in the luxurious surrounds.
“The wine program has been designed to not only pair with the food menu, but also with the elegant, glamorous dining room,” Hildebrandt said. “Our shared focus with Capella is on the guests, and we feel that Brasserie 1930 combines a level of grandeur and comfort we haven’t before seen in Sydney.”
Brasserie 1930 will open in March 2023. Hotel reservations are slated to open in mid-December.
