Opulent sky-high feasts to champagne-soaked dinners – here’s how The Star is doing Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (it’s February 14, just in case you needed a little reminder) and when it comes to the day of love, a little effort can go a long way. Whether you’re keen to roll like a baller or keep things low-key, The Star Gold Coast has you covered with a range of options to suit.
Set the bar sky-high (literally) with a fanciful feast at Nineteen at The Star. From the moment you step out of the elevator and are greeted with a glass of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Champagne, it will be pretty apparent this is not your average dinner date. The menu, crafted by Executive Chef Uday Huja, features caviar, Appellation oysters, succulent steak and a little something sweet to finish. Nineteen at The Star’s Valentine’s Day set menu is $150 per person and bookings are strictly limited so if you’re keen, call 0409 439 078 or email [email protected] stat! If a cocktail under the stars sounds like more your vibe, Garden Kitchen & Bar is set to impress. Take a seat in the newly revamped restaurant and enjoy the freedom of the a-la-carte menu or if you’re keen to leave a lasting impression, indulge in the champagne-paired shared menu complete with oysters, ceviche, cherry sorbet, blow-torched scallops and charred whole quail. To finish, graze your way through the Valentine’s Chocolate Patch filled with chocolate truffles, chocolate tart, chocolate-dipped strawberries, ganache and raspberry sorbet. The champagne shared menu starts at $89 with the option to upgrade the tipple.
Kiyomi will leave a sweet taste with a decadent Valentine’s dessert of Yamasaki dark-chocolate sorbet with matcha cookies and Cucina Vivo is luring lovers with a five-course Italian-inspired degustation filled with the fresh flavours of the Amalfi Coast. Feast on Appellation oysters, burratina with San Danielle and Noosa red tomatoes, Campenelle Salsicca (pork and fennel sausage) followed by fillet mignon featuring Stanbroke beef fillet. The summer spread is $65 per person or for an extra $10 per person, you can pair it with a glass of Woodbrook chardonnay from Central Ranges in New South Wales. French fare more your vibe? You’re in luck because for the entire month of February the culinary wizards at Harvest Buffet will be adding a selection of classic French dishes to the menu so even if Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, you can still get your fill of chicken a la normande, beef bourguignon and Ratatouille.
