The menu is driven by raw, cured and cultured produce. Those opting for this dining experience may choose to sit at The Cured & Cultured counter with a view of the chefs at work on the central level, or join the casual-seating area in The Circle on the upper level of Bennelong near the bar. Diners are able to order from the restaurant’s dessert menu.

In keeping with the philosophy of Bennelong, the cocktail list focuses on using local Australian produce and inspiration.
