Mark Best will open Pei Modern in Sydney at the Four Seasons Hotel on October 15.

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

Best said he is incredibly excited to now open Pei Modern in his 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,” he said.

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 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.

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