BLACK Bar & Grill

Chef Dany Karam conjures all his culinary skills with dishes including a lightly smoked and chargrilled Wagyu striploin. And along with the seafood and whole roast duck, there’s an encyclopaedic wine list with unique, old and rare bottles waiting to be discovered.



Dany Karam

Executive Chef

Since taking the helm, Dany has designed bold, seasonal menus that draw on expert craftsmanship and superior ingredients to unleash a spectrum of delicate flavours. Dany’s international culinary journey began in his home country of Lebanon, where he trained for five years, including a stint as Senior Chef de Partie Chef at Beirut’s award-winning restaurant Le Centrale. He then moved to Nice, France where he honed his skills and further developed his unique approach to modern cuisine at Michelin-starred restaurant, Particulier. He moved to Australia in 2009 to join The Star Sydney as a Junior Sous Chef. Since then he has made waves across The Star’s dining portfolio with his international palette, expert artistry and fresh takes on traditional cuisine. In 2014, Dany drew on his culinary talents and business acumen to assist fellow Star chef, Chase Kojima to open Kiyomi at Jupiters Gold Coast, before taking the role of Executive Chef at BLACK Bar & Grill. In 2017, Dany’s achievements were recognized at the Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA) NSW Awards for Excellence, where he took out the coveted Chef of the Year title. Dany is an authority on all things steak and grilling and speaks with passion about sourcing and working with the best produce Australia has to offer.
