Lotus Dining is the creation of Sydney culinary innovator Michael Jiang. Michael dreamed of owning restaurants that conjured childhood food memories born of his Chinese heritage. The marriage of cooking excellence and creativity led to Lotus Dumpling Bar, one of the best Chinese restaurants in Sydney. From humble beginnings, Lotus Dining has grown to six restaurants and is one of the most revered hospitality groups in Sydney, mixing innovation, creativity, and exemplary dining experiences. As such 3 Glowpear Café Planters were specified for a "mixology kitchen garden" at Lotus Barangaroo, consisting of chillis, shiso, lemongrass and Vietnamese mint to provide garnishes for exotic cocktails. Café Planters provide Lotus flexibility, in that by day they act as green space and hedging for guests, whilst they can be rolled in at night securely from the Barangaroo waterfront promenade.
