Q Dining has launched a new menu inviting guests to dine with views of the Harbour Bridge, accompanied by some of Australia’s finest autumn flavours.
Located within Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour, Q Dining’s new contemporary a la carte menu is in keeping with its commitment to showcase rare artisan ingredients native to Australia and upholds the Indigenous influence the restaurant is known for.
The menu is designed by Executive Chef, Steven Hartert and heroes some of the best Australian home-grown ingredients of autumn with key elements that include basil, beetroot, apple and almonds.
Hartert, began his career at Berlins Krone Lamm Hotel before moving to Austria, where he rose to the role of Chef de Partie at the renowned Hilton Vienna Plaza.

Most recently, Hartert held the position of Chef de Cuisine at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth where he was responsible for creating menus and the day-to-day operation of the Sofitel’s internal venues.
