Gowing Bar and Grill will tantalise the taste-buds!

IMG_1804
As mentioned in my last post Fabulous, funky, and fun times at Qt Sydney our super stay at Qt Sydney was capped off by having access to the wonderful Gowings Bar & Grill that is the latest venture for acclaimed Sydney restaurateur Robert Marchetti.

Gowings Bar & Grill is styled as a European brasserie, with the same edgy contemporary design you will find throughout the Qt Sydney Hotel.

Gowings Bar & Grill offers the freshest produce from Australia’s best artisan providores, prepared with cooking techniques featuring wood fired rotisseries and ovens (you can see most of the kitchen including the wood-fired ovens from the dining room). And, with a specially curated wine list featuring young winemakers from all around the world patrons are spoilt for choice.
