"The landscape around the in-house hotel restaurant has undergone a huge change in
the last few years and is now just as top of mind for consumers as the rest of the
hospitality scene in Sydney. ABODE is an award-winning restaurant and I look forward to
working with our kitchen team to bring to life the next stage of its culinary evolution. We
have big plans ahead but our promise to keep the food honest, authentic, fresh and
seasonal remains. You will see some new trends creep into the menu such as more
native ingredients, some raw produce and salads, salads, salads as the weather warms.
Come by, see for yourself and dine with us'.
John McFadden, Executive Chef
