It’s no secret that the dining options available at The Star are as mouth-watering as they are vast, and we think it’s the perfect destination to suit every dad this Father’s Day. Not sure which restaurant to pick? Read on to discover how your Dad’s personality can be perfectly paired with one of our signature venues.
My dad is: Classic, refined and he doesn’t do things by halves.
Take him to: BLACK Bar & Grill
BLACK Bar & Grill is the classic steakhouse reimagined for the modern, discerning dad who has an appetite for the finer things a dining experience has to offer. It’s so much more than just steak.
Of course, with more than 10 different varieties available from the wood burning grill, if dad wants a steak he’s going to be absolutely spoilt for choice. There’s also fresh seafood on offer, including a caviar service to kick things off if dad prefers something from the ocean.
These upscale steakhouse delights are rounded out with chicken or duck from the charcoal rotisserie, spectacular sides like golden cauliflower and creamy, buttered potatoes, delectable desserts and a selection of the finest Australian cheeses. And did we mention the wine list? BLACK houses an incredible cellar with an extensive local and international wine offering that matches executive chef Dany Karam’s impeccable menu perfectly.
My dad is: Creative and well-travelled with a vivid imagination
Take him to: Sokyo
For a truly unique dining experience at The Star, you can’t go past Sokyo, perfect for that curious dad who’s always up for trying something new. The sleek decor sets the scene, and the energy from the guests and staff is always electric.
But that’s nothing compared to the array of dishes on offer at Sokyo. From melt-in-the-mouth sashimi and crisp tempura to elegant skewers hot off the robata grill, every plate is full of flavour and finessed beautifully.
No dining experience at Sokyo would be complete without a trip to Sokyo Lounge, one of the finest cocktail bars in Sydney. These aren’t just mixed drinks, they’re made to sweep you off your feet and take you somewhere special. So, whether it’s a pre or post dinner stop, make sure it’s on the itinerary to really elevate the Sokyo Father’s Day experience.
My dad is: Generous, funny and gives the best advice
Take him to: Pizzaperta
When it comes to authentic Italian done right, Pizzaperta is the real deal. The alfresco setting is perfect for dad who likes to spin a yarn that will have everyone laughing as they tuck into perfect slices of wood-fired pizza.
When we say authentic, we mean it. The wood-fired oven is direct out of Naples and the stoneground flour that goes into the perfectly crisp yet chewy base is also imported from Italy. They’re topped with the highest quality seasonal produce to complement the delicious flavour of the bases themselves.
From unbeatable classics like Margherita to something more adventurous like slow cooked lamb belly on a ricotta and herb base, the only trouble dad’s going to have is deciding what pizza not to get. To finish up, make sure you order an espresso martini to sip on while dad tosses a few more jokes around the table - they’re out of this world.
My dad is: Full of life and is always thinking ahead to the next big project
Take him to: Harvest Buffet
If your dad struggles to pick a favourite cuisine because he simply loves everything, then you need to bring him to Harvest Buffet - it’s a proper feast for the senses (and stomach!), and there’s so much variety on offer.
There’s a special Father’s Day menu happening, and seafood is going to be the star of the show. From succulent prawns and marinated mussels to freshly shucked Sydney rock oysters and flavoursome Queensland spanner crab, dad is definitely going back for seconds.
That is, if he doesn’t fill up on the moreish BBQ pork ribs, homemade beef pies and assorted dumplings that also feature on the Father’s Day menu. Dad also gets a complimentary beer, wine or spirit to really set the mood for a fantastic family dining experience.
So, how (and where) are you going to spoil dad this Father's Day?
