Take the lift up to the fifth floor of the Sofitel Wentworth Sydney and you’ll find yourself amidst an oasis of greenery and quietude, a respite from the clamour of the CBD. The restaurant opens for lunch on weekdays and is offering what they’re calling the French Art of Partager menu.

Partager means to share and the lunch menu provides several options whether you’re after a quick meal or a more leisurely experience. You’ll find a selection of charcuterie boards to tempt, classic smaller dishes such as moules frites and boeuf tartare, and larger mains ranging from pappardelle pasta to lamb shank bourguignone.

Wine Flight

To commemorate Sofitel Sydney Wentworth’s 50th Anniversary, you can indulge in the Wine Days Lunch menu that pairs every main meal with a wine flight ($30) available until 31 October 2016. Start with Banfi ‘Le Rime’ Pinot Grigio, light on the palate with pronounced fruit notes of peaches, apple and grapefruit. Continue with Yal Yal Rd Pinot Gris, a vibrant and textural wine with crisp pears and yellow peaches and finish with the Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Blanc from Alsace, with floral notes and good acidity that goes exceptionally well with hard cheeses.

Duck Confit

The South Windsor Pepe’s Duck Confit ($30) is not to be missed. The meat is beautifully cooked to the point where it easily falls off the bone. It’s big on flavour and takes you back to that restaurant in Paris that lingers in memory. Crisp Lyonnaise potatoes come with streaky bacon, and rich pan juices and the caramelised pearl onions complete the dish.
