With the launch of a brand new Japanese-style menu, The Rook Rooftop is transforming into a cherry blossom garden for the season. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of hanami, which translates to 'seeing flowers,' The Rook has launched a dining experience that is aesthetically pleasing all around.

As you walk through its doors, you'll be immersed in a world of pastel pink, artful cocktails and funky dishes — all while being surrounded by wonderful views of Sydney's CBD.  Some must-try bites include its loaded gyoza, served with furikake, tonkatsu sauce, kewpie and bonito flakes ($17), and the soft shell crab burger, which comes with wasabi mayo and Japanese slaw ($27).

To drink, you'll find a few classic cocktails spiced up with Japanese ingredients. Try the Sake It To Me ($16), made with sake, vermouth, lychee, lime and mint, or be a little adventurous with the Wasabi Pea Old Fashioned ($23), which mixes Japanese whiskey, vermouth, wasabi syrup and plum bitters.

The Rook is also offering daily specials for the duration of its cherry blossom pop-up. For $20, you can eat as many dumplings as your heart desires (for 90 minutes) while listening to a live jazz set on Wednesdays. Treat yourself to the Cherry Blossom Bottomless Brunch on Saturdays, where you can enjoy a five-course Japanese-style sharing menu for $49 starting at noon.

The Rook's Cherry Blossom Garden is open 4pm–midnight Monday and 12pm–midnight Tuesday–Saturday.
