From the highly inventive and sophisticated cuisine, to the warm and professional service team, Marque restaurant delivers a truly exceptional fine dining experience in Sydney. Having successfully placed Australia firmly on the international culinary radar, Marque restaurant was recently voted as the 70th Best Restaurant in 2011 at the recent World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards. In a unique twist, Marque’s highly talented chef Mark Best started his career as an electrician in a coal mine in Western Australia, and at the age of 25 changed focus to pursue a career as a chef. He opened Marque over a decade ago and has been turning heads with his highly inventive, refined and exquisite modern Australian cuisine ever since. Set within a warm and sophisticated setting within Sydney’s trendy Surry Hills district, chef Mark Best and his team will take you on an unforgettable culinary journey of globally-inspired flavours which showcase the season’s finest produce. The journey may begin with a mouthful of deeply sumptuous almond jelly with blue swimmer crab, almond gazpacho sweet corn and avruga; melt-in-your-mouth smoked bonito with foie gras butter, olive truffle and sesame salt; culminating with a perfectly tender grain-fed Wagyu bavette with black tea and onion. Not only are his dishes a sheer joy for the palette, they’re also beautifully and artistically presented. The highly professional and warm service team is led by the chef’s charming and glamourous wife Valerie, who oversees this seamless dining experience. If there’s only one restaurant that you visit in Sydney, make sure that it’s Marque. Bookings essential.
