Quay Restaurant

Quay Restaurant
One of Australia’s greatest dining destinations, Quay at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger, reopened on Thursday following a $4 million makeover by its owners, the Fink Group.

The three-month closure for the rebuild also led to a complete design of the menu by chef Peter Gilmore.
Quay’s creative director John Fink told Business Insider Australia:
“People’s expectations around fine dining are often minding your Ps and Qs, we want to boldly move into uncharted territory in Australian fine dining by thinking outside the box and considering the dining experience as a sum of its parts.”

Fink enlisted architectural group Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, responsible for the look of their other restaurants Bennelong at the Sydney Opera House and Otto in Brisbane to rethink the 80s interior and realign it more closely with Gilmore’s approach to food. 
Fink’s brief was he wanted “the biggest little restaurant in Australia”.
