REVIEW | The Ternary

Reviewed by Georgia Cassimatis

 With its name originating from the Latin word ‘ternarius’: ‘consisting

of three elements’, this Grill Wok Wine restaurant is fast becoming a

well-known joint to meet, eat and drink. Not only that, but it is a place

to customise whatever social occasion is so desired: a get together

with friends? Intimate dinner for two? Somewhere fun for the family?

Corporate gig?

This large, modern hidden gem in the heart of Darling Harbour

ensconced in an impressive chic glass lined venue, with a kitsch

lounge area, coupled with an outdoor St Tropez style ‘poolside’

veranda feels as though you’re in a Vogue Living magazine.

At the helm of its recent launch, as it continues to win awards and

torpedo up the Trip Advisor ladder, is Director of Culinary, Anthony

Flowers, renowned for his success at Sydney restaurants Ad Lib

Bistro Pymble/Double Bay, Berowra Waters Inn and Forty One.

With a food philosophy of top quality produce sourced locally and

internationally Flowers has devised three kitchens to customise

those tastebuds: The Grill Kitchen, Asian Kitchen and the Wine Bar.

Tonight after dining in the Orange Lounge sipping the Cocktail of the

Month: the Bulb Intentions: overflowing with cognac, vermouth and

pineapple, we opted for fine dining at The Grill and devoured the

much talked about Tomahawk: cape grim grass fed angus with

potatoes and spinach, and what ended up being my favourite the

Pulled Peppered Beef in Crispy paster with water chestnuts and

tamarind jam. Never one to miss out on dessert we had to try the

Apple Martini dessert: warm apple compote, cinnamon ice cream and

biscuit crunch. Not ready to go home yet, we decided to take our

Heggies Botrytis Riesling, which was expertly paired with our feast,

to the St Tropez style banana lounges outside to sip our tipple under

umbrellas while enjoying the sparkling views of the city nightlife.

A one stop shop for all tastebuds and culinary desires, this 600

people venue caters for any event: from formal to cocktail,

celebratory or corporate and with its mantra: ‘The Best Things In Life


Are Meant To Be Shared’ this sophisticated, family friendly

restaurant with a touch of chic is one place to feast your eyes on.

Open Seven Days.
