aria turns 20


Matt Moran, Bruce Solomon and the Aria team recently celebrated our 20th birthday in late 2019. Since opening in December 1999, we are proud of our reputation for fine dining, a world-class wine list and stunning Sydney views. To mark the significant milestone and of the Sydney community who have played a part in shaping Aria, we celebrated with a birthday tasting menu, a celebration dinner and a special New Year's Eve party to ring in 2020 in style.

20th birthday tasting menu

To mark the significant milestone throughout October, we served a custom eight-course tasting menu from 2nd to 31st October that brought back some of our most beloved dishes from the past 20 years. Executive Chef Joel Bickford produced his modern interpretation of favourite dishes.
