Eat, Sydney / 10 November 2021

With grand chandeliers, a modern Italian menu and a world-class wine list, this new venue is here to impress!

The newly developed Barangaroo precinct has quickly become a foodie destination for Sydneysiders. With the likes of Marble BBQ, Tequila Daisy and Cirrus Dining, there are many impressive drinking and dining experiences to choose from. To add to their repertoire, Corso Brio has introduced their new 120-seater venue to the streets, boasting boujee interiors, a modern Italian menu and an impressive wine list to match.

Corso Brio is led by a strong hospitality team including Italian-born executive chef Massimo De Michele. His passion for food has developed over two decades and he brings his culinary experiences from Europe and Asia to the table. De Michele has been behind the kitchen at three Michelin starred II Ristorante at the Bulgari Hotel in Milan and the Michelin starred Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin at the Bulgari Hotel in Tokyo. Alongside him, Head Chef Alessandro Morabito brings his cultural roots from Calabria in southern Italy. Combine this with Jacopo Mastrocinque and Simone Gibillini’s Managerial skills and you have a seamless experience for diners.
The menu features a combination of a la carte dishes, set menu experiences and antipasti to share. Dishes include Beef Carpaccio, Wild-Caught New Zealand Scampi, Slow-Cooked Margra Lamb Shoulder and Citrus with Buffalo Ricotta. There’s also a selection of specialty risottos and handmade pasta including Spaghetti with Fraser Island Crab, Homemade Egg Tagliatelle with Slow-Cooked Venison Ragu and Risotto with Carnaroli Rice and Stracciatella.

One of Australia’s most renowned wine experts is behind the bar with a 400 bin wine list. Jon Osbeiston showcases a serious selection of wines from around the world with a strong focus on Italian wine regions like Barolo, Barbaresco and Chianti. Australian wines are also a highlight, especially the aged Semillons from Hunter Valley.

The restaurant draws elegance from the grand ballrooms of Europe. The space boasts ornate ceilings, grand chandeliers, rich timber finishes and a wine wall showcasing the best drops. The interiors were inspired by the team’s travels to Europe and particularly the Renaissance era in Venice and Florence. This is all complemented by modern Italian cuisine, world-class wine and that warm European hospitality.

Corso Brio is open six days for lunch and dinner and offers group bookings as well as function and event room hire.
