HOME AND AWAY
THE standard hotel buffet is anathema to many a serious food lover, but seafood fans will find it hard to turn up their noses at the piscatorial offerings at Sydney’s Sheraton on the Park. A table piled high with prawns, oysters, mussels, snow crab, octopus, clams and sushi greets guests at Feast (pictured), the hotel’s first-floor buffet restaurant with expansive Hyde Park views. The restaurant, previously Botanica Brasserie, was relaunched late last year with a revamped look and name after the city-centre property’s five-year makeover. A new lounge, private dining booths and communal tables, plus an open-plan demonstration kitchen (with stone hearth oven) complete a more contemporary picture. The lunch buffet, which also has a huge range of non-seafood dishes — from pasta and pizza to Asian stir-fries and Italian desserts — is $75 a person ($85 on Sunday); dinner $85 ($99 Friday and Saturday). Bring dad for a Father’s Day treat, before nipping to nearby David Jones to peruse the sock department. More: sheraton.com/sydney.
