Mark Best’s Pei Modern to launch in Sydney at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney on October 15, 2014

Sydney, Australia, 2014-8-27 — /Travel PR News/ — Pei Modern, Mark Best’s internationally recognized modern bistro, will launch in Sydney at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney on October 15, 2014.

Founded on the principles of bistronomie that demand a commitment to locally sourced, quality seasonal produce and wines that speak of their place and style, Pei Modern opened in Melbourne in 2012 to critical acclaim, winning The Age Best New Restaurant Award for 2013.

Best said, “I’m incredibly excited to open Pei Modern in an iconic location of my beautiful hometown. Pei Modern Sydney will respond to the local environment, location, customer and produce. I’m excited to get into this amazing kitchen and cook from the wood fired grill and oven.”

Best quipped, “The cuisine style will be ‘primal modern.'”

Matt Germanchis, founding chef from Pei Modern Melbourne, has relocated to open Pei Modern Sydney and Ainslie Lubbock, multiple award-winning maitre d’, will ensure that the same professional service and old fashioned warmth that has defined Pei Modern in Melbourne will be brought to Sydney as she oversees the opening period before returning to Melbourne. Dishes such as “that” sauternes custard, and jerusalem artichoke with duck egg and truffle will make the journey north to Sydney.

Helen Rice, architect, will again oversee the transformation of the ground-floor space at Four Seasons to a “Pei Modern space.”

Rudolf van Dijk, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Sydney says, “We’re delighted to welcome Pei Modern toFour Seasons. We know Mark, Matt and Ainslie will truly deliver a world-class bistro that all Sydneysiders and Hotel guests will enjoy.”

Pei Modern Sydney will be open for lunch Monday to Friday including the “Eat.Pei.Quick” express offer, and dinner Monday to Saturday.
