All-day dining is on the cards at Opera Kitchen, and Australian producers are at the heart of the offering.

The Solotel-run Opera Bar is also switching things up, focusing on Australian wines and spirits and launching a new food offering in place of the raw bar.

“There will be seafood platters and we’ve got a Japanese bar popping up [with] sake and hand rolls, but all good Aussie seafood,” Chef Matt Moran said on Today.

The venue will have a capacity of 300 people and will be adhering to all COVID Safe requirements.

“We have a COVID safety officer and all the things in place to minimise the risk of that [COVID cases] from happening,” said Moran.

Guests can also book tables at Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen for the first time and redeem $5 parking.
