Paddingtons Bellevue to reopen this week
After seven months of extensive renovations, Bellevue in Sydney’s Paddington will re-open both its ground level dining spaces and the Bellevue Terrace this week.
Formerly known as The Bellevue Hotel, the pub’s transformation was overseen by the team at Humphrey & Edwards. In addition to a bright and public bar, the site also offers an elegant dining space with industrial-style finishes and an open kitchen.
The ground floor, opening on 21 July, flows from bar to dining, with the dining space doubling in size, to include seating for 70 as well as an oyster and caviar bar.
The pub offers a Modern European menu, managed by executive chef James Metcalfe, whose resume includes Etch, Becasse and The Bourbon, and dishes include Queensland spanner crab with wasabi and lime; Blackmore brisket with smoked beetroot and star anise; and chocolate tart with spiced caramel and pear ice cream.
Consultant sommelier Manuel Conti (A Tavola) has curated a list of 70+ local and international drops from both renowned and boutique producers.
Upstairs, the Bellevue Terrace – which will open on 24 July – has also had a redesign and now offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
