Sean Connolly heads reopening of QT Sydney’s Gowings restaurant

QT Sydney’s signature restaurant, Gowings, has reopened today under the creative culinary direction of Australian chef Sean Connolly.

Following the opening of award-winning restaurant Esther at QT Auckland, Connolly has found a home in QT, leading the dining concept of QT Sydney’s signature restaurant in addition to in-room dining, and conference and events menus.

The reborn Gowings is inspired by New York’s Little Italy and steakhouse scene.

“I’m very excited to be working with Gowings, a restaurant that was a pioneer in Sydney’s dining scene, located in a building that is a huge part of Sydney’s cultural fabric,” Connolly said.

“In this new venture, I’ll bring back old school hotel dining with a twist, combining the new interiors and menu with a flair for interactive theatre.

“It’ll be a melting pot of Italian food and great Australian beef and produce.”

Gowings has also introduced a Chef’s Table in the kitchen, where up to eight guests can see the care that goes into their meals.
