Named the official “Lambassdor” and a master of meat for 2018 by True Aussie Beef & Lamb, Chef Brooks pays tribute to his home country for Australia Day, observed on January 26, by offering weeklong special menus at EDGE, Steak & Bar and a classic outdoor ‘barbie located poolside with his best ‘mates.

EDGE Steak & Bar Specials – January 21–26, 2019

For those looking to indulge in an authentic dining experience, Chef Brooks curates an exceptional menu at EDGE Steak & Bar featuring a few of his favourite dishes from back home including Australian wagyu beef, pasture raised lamb, and other regional favourites. Diners can relish in flavours from the Land Down Under on the USD 24, three-course Lunch Break menu, offered Monday through Saturday. During dinner service, the Chef’s Tasting Menu will feature five surprise Australian-inspired courses for USD 65 per person, to be featured throughout the week.

The traditional outdoor ‘barbie is back at Bahía located on the Hotel’s 7th floor pool terrace and will close out the week-long celebration on Sunday, January 27, 2019 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
