The Italian word for century, 'secolo', seems a fitting name for this Italian restaurant, which has found a home in the 115-year old Legion House Building in Sydney's CBD. Secolo may take its name from its lodgings, but its vision is to produce traditional and authentic Southern Italian cuisine in a contemporary Australian setting.
The Lotus Group first claimed culinary fame in Sydney with a modern take on authentic Chinese fare and, of course, its signature dumplings. In the group’s latest hospitality venture, it has taken inspiration from further east to produce Fujisaki, a modern Japanese restaurant at Barangaroo.
With panoramic views of Sydney and vibrant, greenhouse-inspired interior, The Fernery is not just another bar – it’s an urban oasis. The tastefully decorated space, designed by Pony Design Co, borrows themes from botanic gardens, with plenty of plant life and abundance of natural light.
