One of the world’s most iconic and awarded culinary figures is coming to Sydney this May.

Gordon Ramsay will bring his three-Michelin star establishment Restaurant Gordon Ramsay to Sydney’s Aria for a three-night residency, marking the first time the fine diner will leave London.

Matt Moran and Ramsay are long-time friends, with the 25-plus year friendship culminating in one of the biggest food events the city has ever seen.

“Collaborating with my dear friend Matt Moran and talented chef patron Matt Abé at Aria with its magnificent views across Sydney harbour and creating a menu that utilises Australia’s incredible local produce whilst delivering the finesse of our three-star Michelin menu is a dream come true,” says Ramsay.

The three chefs will create a $495 seven-course menu that will see the London restaurant’s dishes replicated using produce sourced from some of Australia’s best producers.

While the exact menu has yet to be revealed, guests can expect to see shellfish raviolo and a dessert of pecan praline. A premium wine pairing for $295 will also be available alongside Aria’s wine program.

The three-night residency is a full-circle moment for Abé, who worked alongside Moran before moving to London.

“I’m so excited to be heading back to the restaurant where my love for fine dining began,” he says.

“It means so much to be coming home as the first and only three-star Australian chef and to showcase what I have learnt over the years of working for Gordon. It really is an honour to be stepping back into the kitchen at Aria.”

Tickets for Restaurant Gordon Ramsay comes to Aria go on sale at 10am Thursday 13 April.

“These three nights will be a real highlight in the 23 years of Aria,” says Moran, “I can’t wait.”
