The Bentley was opened in March 2006 by Chef Brent Savage and Sommelier Nick Hildebrandt in a former pub in Surry Hills. It was a new kind of restaurant for Sydney – one where the food could challenge and inspire you, but in a relaxed atmosphere where you could find an eclectic list of wines not offered anywhere else.
With Brent’s flavoursome food and Nick’s love of introducing customers to wines by international boutique producers, the Bentley quickly earned a reputation for leading diners to some new and exciting places. The vision paid off and Bentley was named ‘Best New Restaurant’ at the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide Awards, as well as earning two Chef’s hats and a coveted wine glass, which it has retained ever since.
Since those early days, Brent and Nick have continued to steer the Bentley to a place where it has become known as one of the most influential restaurants in the country. It has been lauded by restaurant reviewers from around the world, recognised with a swag of awards by influential publications including Australian Gourmet Traveller, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian and consistently featured in the Top 20 of Gourmet Traveller’s Top 100 Australian restaurants.
