Meet ABODE Bistro & Bar, Darling Harbour’s Best Kept Dining Secret

Bars, Drink, Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 4 November 2020

Step into this inner-city oasis for award-winning modern Australian cuisine at its best.

Whether you’re toasting to a special occasion or catching up with family and friends, ABODE Bistro & Bar is the hidden gem you need to know about. Located in the heart of the city, next door to Darling Harbour, and five minutes walk from Town Hall station, this welcoming dining room feels like a home away from home, with an award-winning menu to match.

For the past 6 years, ABODE has been delighting guests with sophisticated modern Australian eats, crafted using fresh, seasonal local produce. At the helm of the kitchen Executive Chef, Josh Askew and Chef de Cuisine Vico Betguen has curated an innovative menu spanning from traditional dishes to smaller share plates.

And with good food comes a delicious menu of drinks, with everything from boutique wine to craft beer and signature cocktails pouring at ABODE. Whether you choose to relax in their intimate lounge area in the bar or soak in the contemporary atmosphere on the deck, you’ll be in for a treat at ABODE.

This spring, the team from ABODE has curated two bespoke menus to celebrate the best produce of the season. If you’re looking to step away from your desk or indulge in a lavish long lunch, ABODE’s spring lunch menu has you covered (available Wednesday to Friday from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm).

Plus, ABODE’s spring dinner menu (available Wednesday to Saturday from 5 pm to 10 pm) offers the perfect chance to explore new flavours and savour timeless classics. Start with smaller plates of squid ink ravioli or house-cured ora king salmon before moving onto substantial mains of spatchcock, saffron linguine, and grain-fed striploin.

Looking for a reason to indulge? ABODE’s Chef’s Selection degustation ($75 per person, or $85 per person with a bottle of selected wine) gives you the chance to enjoy five courses of seasonal, expertly curated dishes from the kitchen’s award-winning chefs. Make sure to book ahead of time to avoid disappointment, with seatings available Wednesday to Saturday nights from 5 pm to 10 pm.

Plus, don’t miss ABODE’s new limited-time menu in collaboration with Melbourne brewers Mountain Goat Beer. To celebrate the launch of Mountain Goat’s first Sydney brewpub, the venues have teamed up to create a five-course degustation paired with the best of Mountain Goat’s ales (plus gin and Prosecco). Secure your spot today for the month of December, for dates between 1st and 24th only ($85 per person with paired Mountain Goat ales, or $75 without) by clicking here.

And finally, this month (Friday, November 27th) the team from ABODE is hosting a pop-up kitchen at Mountain Goat’s Newtown Brewpub (running from 3 pm to 5 pm). Experience four bespoke complimentary canapés from ABODE’s chefs inspired by and using some of Mountain Goat’s craft brews. To score yours, simply order one of the four selected beers from the bar and the ABODE team will serve you a complimentary canapé to match.
