An extra special evening is what we’ve all been waiting for. So, forget diamonds, this New Year’s Eve it’s all about pearls—or to be exact, one stunning South Sea Pearl, thanks to The Star Sydney.
On the last evening of 2021, every diner at Sokyo, BLACK Bar & Grill, Flying Fish and Cucina Porto will not only enjoy a beautifully curated meal, but will also be offered a complimentary freshly shucked oyster and glass of chilled champagne—and the chance to win a South Sea Pearl valued at up to $10,000.
Passionate about hero-ing local Australian produce, The Star has chosen to hero the oyster this New Year’s Eve and the amazing regions from which they are farmed. All four signature restaurants at The Star will be offering fresh oysters to all guests on December 31st. Every guest will be handed an entry form on arrival at the restaurant. They will then need to scan the QR code and enter their details to enter to competition.
Featuring a radiating glow and unique lustre, South Sea Pearls are known to be the rarest and most valuable of all pearls, taking up to three years to cultivate in the Pinctada maxima or the white-lipped oyster. Worn on a gold necklace or fastened on a statement ring, the South Sea Pearl is luxurious, elegant, and timeless.
To accompany the oyster offer and to give Sydneysiders a way to celebrate the New Year in luxurious style, Executive Chefs of The Star’s four flagship restaurants—Sokyo, Cucina Porto, Flying Fish and BLACK Bar & Grill—have each created a signature dish especially for New Year’s Eve, which will be available to order alongside the a la carte menu items. The four signature dishes have each been designed to celebrate Australia’s amazing fresh seafood, using sustainably sourced and high-quality ingredients.
At Sokyo, enjoy a premium sashimi platter that’s full to the brim with lobster, caviar, toro, scampi, and an abundance of fresh sashimi. BLACK Bar & Grill will be serving blacklip abalone that’s cooked over charcoal and served with seaweed butter and lemon, as well as an A5 Japanese Wagyu striploin cooked over the wood grill.
The New Year’s Eve specials at Flying Fish will be a BBQ whole Eastern rock lobster with wakama butter and lime, and miso baked aquna murray cod with pickled ginger and turmeric. Lastly, guests at Cucino Porto will be able to order antipasto di mare, which consists of a luxurious array of seafood such as Tasmanian oysters, Abrolhos Island scallops, Alaskan crab with smoked caviar, Hiramasa kingfish crudo, marinated New Zealand scampi and more.
So, be sure to make a reservation at one of The Star’s signature restaurants this New Year’s Eve and experience a special evening meal with a glass of champagne and an oyster—and you may be going home with a South Sea Pearl worth $10K. It’ll be sure to be an evening that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
