Planar Restaurant is the latest venue launched by the Platinum Restaurant Group at Darling Harbour. As part of the International Convention Centre, it has spectacular city and water views. It is a large space with a long bar, complemented with indoor and outdoor seating.
Like some of the other restaurants in the Platinum Restaurant Group, the menu is modern Australian and caters for diverse tastes. It is open for breakfast lunch and dinner..
With the opening of the bar, Planar Restaurant is now offering $95 cocktail masterclasses that require a minimum of ten attendees and pizza making classes for a group of ten people at $75 a head.
While we did not get to taste their pizzas nor cocktails at the launch, we did try canape versions of other items on the menu. Their pita bread (with dips) that were made in the pizza oven and their fresh seafood, particularly the prawns lollipops (prawns covered in sriracha butter sauce, lime and bronze fennel) were a standout. I can only surmise from those dishes that the lobster pizza on the menu will be a hit.
I also could not help but notice their happy hour on their website with $5 house wine, $5 Coronas, $5 spirits and $9 cocktails every weekday from 3pm to 6pm. That sounds like a bargain to me!
