Here’s a review for families of The Ternary Restaurant at the Novotel, Darling Harbour. It’s a top spot for a special family dinner, kids welcome.
One of the many perks of this WAHM blogging lifestyle is… no, not getting to pick the kids up and take them to swimming lessons…. it’s going out to lunch with lots of travel writers and public relations people.
I’m a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers, one of the benefits of membership is the monthly networking lunch. These tend to be held somewhere beautiful and interesting and they don’t even cost very much. Beaut!
Somehow, getting through the domestic routine of home seems not so bad on the days I know I have a lovely lunch with funny people to go to.
Now I’ve stayed in several Novotels, they are always very family-friendly, so I guessed this restaurant would be too. But it’s also a proper grown up restaurant and would work very well for a big family lunch where you needed to cater to all the generations.
The Ternary Restaurant – What’s In That Name?
My fond notions that there had been a colony of terns on this spot proved illusory.
Ternary means ‘consisting of three things’ in the same way binary means ‘consisting of two things.’
And The Ternary is in a way three venues in one:
The Wine Bar
The Grill Kitchen
The Asian Kitchen
Between the three areas, you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, enjoying a combination of cultures and cuisines.
There is a children’s menu and high chairs can be provided. I always advise people to call ahead and try to book a high chair at any venue.
Lots of kids will love the fact that the kitchens are open so they can look at the chefs as they work – and dream of their future careers.
The Ternary Restaurant – The Details
100 Murray St, Pyrmont, NSW 2009
Phone: +61 2 9934 0000
Parking: You can park at the Wilson Harbourside Car Park which is also at 100 Murray Street Pyrmont.
There’s really nothing better than a luscious lunch with lighthearted companions. And I always, always pick up useful tips too.
Then it’s a speedy drive home to pick up the kids, sort out the bags, start the dinner, washing up, folding, hanging…. blah blah blah….
Normal life resumes…
… bring on the next lunch!
We don’t have a big family (or any family) here in Sydney, but this is one restaurant that would definitely work for those special meals out where a combination of old, young and we-in-the-middle will be eating.
Can you recommend another good restaurant that’s kid-friendly and good for special occasions?
