Esteemed chefs Federico Zanellato and Karl Firla launch a feast for all the senses at Sydney’s premium dining destination, The Star.
If some seriously fine dining with a unique twist sounds like your idea of heaven, you’re in for a treat. A dining experience like never before, ELE – the brainchild of Federico Zanellato and Karl Firla – has recently opened at The Star Sydney.
Ambitious, innovative and original to boot, ELE fuses food, sound and art to offer diners the chance to taste an incredible menu that pays homage to the four elements – earth, wind, fire and water – while they move through the restaurant, from the bar, to the dining room, to the chef’s table.
Federico Zanellato – who began his illustrious career working in some of Europe’s finest restaurants, including La Pergola and The Ritz – says of his latest project:
“ELE is more than our food, we want to appeal to every sense when you dine with us. This is a progressive experience where you move around the whole restaurant while you eat, discovering new dishes, sounds and sights each time you sit down.”
For foodies with a penchant for a creative dish, the menu is bound to impress. Boasting delectable plates that include a sourdough crumpet topped with wagyu tartare and confit egg yolk, potato mille feuille with smoked cod brandade, dry-aged Murray Cod with roasted bone sauce and native coastal greens and toasted grains with salted caramel, ELE really is fine dining at its very best.
If that isn’t enough to tantalise your tastebuds, there too is an extensive drinks list that boasts the likes of elementary cocktails and Louis Roederer NV Champagne.
And with the concepts of earth, wind, fire and water being showcased by a stunning series of immersive art and sound installations in each of the three dining areas, ELE by Federico & Karl is an unforgettable experience, unlike anything Sydney’s dining landscape has seen before.
ELE by Federico & Karl is open Wednesday – Saturday, 5pm – 11pm. Find out more and book here.
The Star Sydney is located at Level G, Edward St Entrance, The Star, 80 Pyrmont Street Pyrmont NSW 2009.
