Brasserie 1930, Sydney’s newest brasserie opens its doors on 15 March 2023 – located in the stunning Capella Sydney Hotel. The 120-seat venue will offer an experience showcasing cutting-edge Sydney dining, synonymous with The Bentley Group.

Located in the historic Sandstone precinct of Sydney’s CBD, the dining room captures the essence of a traditional brasserie, delivered through a contemporary Australian lens. Dovetailing a sophisticated design approach with meticulously restored architectural features, Brasserie 1930 is set to become one of Sydney’s most desirable dining destinations.

Designed by Bentley Group’s owner and chef, Brent Savage, Brasserie 1930’s food direction draws on cooking methods such as curing, smoking, fermenting, preserving and pickling with the charcoal grill becoming the theatrical centrepiece of the open kitchen. The menu, designed to share, opens with appetisers including a selection of oysters and caviar, alongside charcuterie and raw Paradise prawns with fermented chilli mayonnaise.

Starters include Flinders Island scallop with brown butter and finger lime; glazed qual with whipped feta and green olive salsa; and a vegetable tart with wattle seed curd and white balsamic.

Mains include a selection of steaks cooked on the charcoal grill including wagyu rump cap and Blackmore 9+ rib-eye; coal-roasted Murry Cod with pepper berry butter and chives; and a whole roasted duck that is served as breasts and duck neck sausages, accompanied by roasted plum, fennel, spinach and glazed eschalot.

Desserts feature a dark chocolate mille feuille with passionfruit sorbet and vanilla cremaux, and a white chocolate custard with Luxardo preserved cherries.

“We are really excited to be opening Brasserie 1930 in partnership with Capella Sydney. The menu is our take on an Australian brasserie. We’ve taken brasserie classics and put our own spin on them,” says Brent. 

Nick Hildebrandt – Bentley’s owner and sommelier – says his wine program will champion new and interesting producers along with iconic Australian and European labels for Brasserie 1930. The wine list will showcase 400 iconic international producers and a rotating by-the-glass list from The Bentley Group’s Bentley Wine Vault list.

“Brasserie 1930 combines a level of grandeur and comfort we don’t often see in Sydney. The wine program has been designed to not only pair with the food menu but also with the elegant, glamorous dining room,” Hildebrandt said.  

Brasserie 1930 opens on 15 March 2023 for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday, with reservations now open.
