Dany Karam exited The Star Sydney’s Black Bar & Grill back in 2022 after spending five years as executive chef at the fine diner.

And after taking on various consulting gigs, he’s been appointed the culinary ambassador of Cabra-Vale Diggers as the venue commences a multi-stage redevelopment in South West Sydney.

At its completion, the site will host a 140-room hotel tower as well as a range of new culinary offerings that will join the existing District 8 dining precinct.

“Having Dany Karam join forces with the Cabra-Vale Diggers Group is a testament to our bold vision for the future,” says CEO Boris Belevski.

“This collaboration underscores our club’s progressive approach to offering unparalleled culinary experiences to our valued members and guests.”

Stage two will see Karam launch two concepts including a 160-seat steakhouse and whisky bar along with a 300-seat Italian restaurant.

“I’m looking forward to bringing my passion for exceptional produce and culinary exploration to what will be an esteemed establishment,” says the chef.

“Together, we will add another layer of excellence that you would normally expect from a CBD establishment, but in South West Sydney.”
