Chinese restaurant Lotus is set to be the final retailer to occupy Grosvenor Place’s redeveloped Piazza in the Sydney CBD, adding to a multicultural range of dining options to move into the 1,950 square metre space in the third quarter of 2016.

With the final restaurant announced and construction well underway, the Grosvenor Place Piazza is expected to open to the public by late 2016.

The $10 million piazza redevelopment, is part of a broader George Street revival that includes the light rail, outdoor dining in Martin Place and the revitalisation of Circular Quay to create a new al fresco, pedestrianised precinct for Sydney. 

Lotus was voted Top Rated Asian 2016 restaurant by diners on restaurant booking network Dimmi and also figured in The Urban List’s top 10 Best Dumplings in Sydney. 

Along with its traditional cuisine, the restaurant is bringing in talented sommelier, Annette Lacey fromPei Modern and experienced cocktail artist, Kate McGraw.

"From humble beginnings at Walsh Bay, to the recently opened 270-seat CBD location in the Galeries, Grosvenor Place is the next step in the evolution of the Lotus brand. Along with our signature handmade dumplings, Grosvenor will feature a stronger focus on cocktails and a sophisticated bar atmosphere,” said Lotus dining director Michael Jiang.

The co-owners and managers of Grosvenor Place, DEXUS Property Group, Mirvac Group and Arcadia, have worked with architects, Harry Seidler & Associates to ensure the overall piazza design retains and enhances Seidler’s architecture.

Besides Lotus, the Piazza will feature Southern Italian fare at Urban Purveyor Group’s Stella Ristorante & Terrazzo; Sake Jnr’s Japanese fast fine-casual, Grand Dūk ‘s modern Australian with a Vietnamese and French twist and Georgie Boy’s French patisseries and desserts.

The adaptable format of the piazza allows the space to cater to office tower occupants across the working week, late-night theatre-goers, and arts enthusiasts during the evenings and weekends as well as tourists and inner city residents.
