Pei in the Sky

For foodies headed Down Under, Pei Modern, Mark Best's internationally recognised modern bistro, will launch in Sydney at the 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.

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 also make the journey north to Sydney.

Architect Helen Rice will again oversee the transformation of Four Seasons' ground-floor space to a "Pei Modern space".
