Dining out at Neil Perry’s newest restaurant, Margaret

Sydney eastern suburbs property developer Danny Avidan, who has just knocked back $14m for the penthouse in his Kalypso development in Tamarama, was one of hundreds of guests treated to truffle toasties, freshly shucked Sydney rock oysters, to white sturgeon caviar tarts at Pallas Capital’s launch of its new Pallas House development in Double Bay.

Guests including Avidan, his fashion designer wife Charlie Brown, and Woollahra mayor Susan Wynne were then treated to a stunning multi-course dinner at a soft launch of Neil Perry’s newest restaurant, Margaret. Headed by executive chairman Patrick Keenan, Pallas Capital’s new Bay St office premises, which have been fully leased out, include a cosy cigar room and fireplace with harbour views.

Meanwhile Avidan, chief executive of Dare Property Group, says he is holding out for $16m for the penthouse with interiors by Melbourne’s MIM Design. The penthouse is one of 11 apartments on the site overlooking the surrounding beaches.
