Icebergs Dining Room and Bar Restaurateur Maurice Terzini’s long-held ambitions for a CBD restaurant are finally about to come true.
The veteran hotel operator is part of a group that has ensnared the revamped Jacksons on George mega site.
Sydney’s landmark has been one of the city’s most contested properties, now part of Lendlease’s massive Circular Quay development, Sydney Place.
The multi-level space includes a gastropub downstairs, a restaurant and wine bar upstairs, and a rooftop bar.
Terzini is part of DTL Entertainment’s winning bid, led by entrepreneurs Paul Ford and Steve Bannigan, publican Michael Broome and DTL Entertainment’s creative director, Terzini himself.
The aim is for the three levels of Jacksons on George to include a modern and sophisticated pub on the ground floor, a restaurant and wine bar on the first level and a sunny roof terrace and cocktail bar, says Terzini.
“The past few years have been difficult for Sydney’s hospitality industry, but we are determined and more than ready to turn the tide. It’s time to be a global city again,” he said.
“At Jacksons, we are creating an innovative and exciting destination where the food and drink will be simple and elegant, the service will be traditional and the atmosphere will be unforgettable.
“The Jacksons experience will be an ever-changing experience immersed in local culture with cutting-edge contemporary music, art, food and drink, fashion and architecture.”
