An excellent CBD location, award-winning food and wine menu and efficient service make Glass Brasserie at Hilton Sydney an ideal business lunch destination.
Seeing as some of the best business is discussed over lunch, a booking at Glass Brasserie with renowned chef Luke Mangan should be at the top of any businessperson’s to-do list.
Currently holding One Chefs Hat, as awarded by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide, Mr Mangan’s dishes combine classical French bistro cuisine with modern Asian flavours and techniques.
Delicate starter dishes such as the signature Hiramasa kingfish sashimi with ginger, eschallot and Persian feta and an egg omelette of blue swimmer crab meat, enoki mushroom and herb salad in a miso mustard broth are a great prelude to a main menu that features a variety of grilled fish and meat dishes.
Highlights include the roasted barramundi served with chicken wing, snow crab, clams, turnip, chicory and bacon dashi and a 450g Greenham dry-aged rib eye served with garlic mushrooms and pepper sauce.
“My team at glass know what constitutes a successful business lunch; great food, great wine and timely, efficient service. At glass, we do all of that and we do it well. We’re well versed in the art of the business lunch so if a deal is to be done, it’s definitely going to be done at glass.” says Mr Mangan.
Accompanying Mangan’s menu is a 1000 bottle strong list of wines from across the globe.
Curated by Head Sommelier Mauro Bortolato, the award-winning wine list offers rare bottles as well as an evolving range of boutique and famous Australian wines.
In addition, Glass Wine Bar housed within the restaurant is an excellent pre or post lunch drink spot which is dramatically set off by the glass cellar which houses 3000 bottles of wine.
Mr Bortolato and his team of sommeliers are on hand to ensure excellent and complimentary wine choices.
“Whether it’s a delicate Sancerre to match Mangan’s iconic kingfish or a big, bold Barossa Shiraz to accompany the rib eye, we know the wines that will leave a lasting impression on diners. “ Mr Bortolato says.
Illuminated with natural light from a 13 metre floor to ceiling glass wall which frames a breathtaking view of the Queen Victoria Building, Glass Brasserie combines contemporary design with striking high ceilings and warm wood tones.
The main dining area is an open space that can seat up to 220 diners, while a private dining room that can seat up to 14 guests and a chef’s kitchen table seating up to eight guests are perfect spaces for more private business lunches.
Glass Wine Bar is also a unique event space that seats up to 40 guests for an exclusive lunch or dinner and 70 guests for a standing drinks or canapé event.
Set in the heart of Sydney’s CBD on George Street, the convenience of Glass Brasserie’s location allows for a time-efficient business lunch which is further supported by a team of professional staff who understand the importance of timing and proficiency when serving patrons at a lunch meeting.
