Opened in the 101-year-old Beneficial House on Wynyard Lane, The Sanderson is the latest venture from The Speakeasy Group (Eau de Vie, Mjoner). And while I don’t think Sydney really needed another luxe seafood and steak house, this kitchen is ticking all the right boxes for sumptuous CBD feasts in expensive dining rooms.
On the table we see two miniature silver rams with curled horns. Our waiter flips them around, and pours us a nip of something neon-green. We’re told it’s made in-house, from sherry, green apple, cucumber, and white balsamic. Sounds a lot better than the Midori of our youth, so down it goes. Like a bright, zippy treat, actually. A sign of the fun to come.
The Sanderson is a 120-seat steak and seafood restaurant in the heritage-listed Beneficial House in Sydney’s CBD. We love the cosy booths, theatrical touches (fruity boozy shot to kick off your meal; choose your knife adventure, etc) and balanced, seasoned dishes.
Time Out tip: The Sanderson’s sibling venue, Sydney’s former world’s best cocktail bar Eau de Vie, is found in the basement below. We say kill two birds and come check out both.
