• Buffet Digital has launched it’s second edition of #buffetedibleart prints, No Reservations. There are five recognisable bars and restaurants – we have our eyes on the dreamy Icebergs Dining Room and Bar shot – snapped by co-director Nikki To, all ready for you to hang and frame in your home. (A great way to have you feeling closer to your favourite haunts, even on a night in.)

• The fromage-adoring Studd Siblings have worked together with The Ace’s ground-floor eatery Loam to deliver a cheesy September-long menu. You’ve got a little over a week to savour roast tomato soup with a caramelised leek and cheddar toastie, a jalapeno-laced mac’n’cheese and super-special Galotyri PDO Aphrodite cheesecake with accompanying boozy blackberries.

•On a new episode of Broadsheet’s podcast Around Town, pioneering chef Josh Niland stopped by to deliver a quick masterclass in fish cookery and sustainability – debunking a bunch of common myths in the process. Read the recap here.

• Milly Dent has launched her next range of coveted ceramics, Intertidal, the perfect purchases to level up your springtime entertaining. Dainty clay shells are latched onto the outside of wine coolers and carafes, and there’s a limited edition range of her gem cups, dipped in a glossy deep blue glaze.

Good & Fugly, the business dedicated to reducing our food waste via saving the goods turned away by supermarkets, has expanded its delivery areas. Now, those in the Blue Mountains and Wollongong, and on the Central Coast can have seasonal fruit and veggie boxes delivered straight to their door. And Newcastle’s up next.

Tijuana’s is open over in Manly – come for a menu that deftly melds Mexican and Peruvian dishes together, in a beautiful space that looks like a hotel in Tulum.

Bistro Moncur has launched a $65 two-course menu to dine on between Tuesday and Saturday, leaving you to lean into a luxe dining experience – think honey-poached quinch tarte tatin and ricotta gnochetti – without the usual price tag.

•The team behind Bar Suze (now the soon-to-reopen BS Pasta Palace) has launched Caravin, a Paris-inspired restaurant and wine bar, in Potts Point. It’s a little bit restaurant, a little bit wine bar, and a whole lot of fun.

•We also caught up with another master, Firedoor and Gildas’ Lennox Hastie, to talk about his current menu favourites, what keeps him coming back to the fire every day, and how he unwinds after the heat of service.

• Club Sup has launched tickets for the October run of its knock-out pop-up dinner party at Theeca. On Wednesday October 4, head to the Darlinghurst eatery for two courses plus dessert, wine aplenty and lots of conversation with your soon-to-be-friends dinner dates.

• The latest opening from House Made Hospitality has roared into Bondi. Easy Tiger brings an ex-Mr Wong chef to the beachside neighbourhood, as well as an on-site micro-brewery.

• Byron Bay newcomer The Smoking Camel has teamed up with nearby distillery Brookie’s Gin to deliver Turkish Delight Gin, a rose-infused delight that features fragrant lemon-esque white aspen from the Cape Byron distillery’s rainforest. And if you happen to be in the area on Sunday September 24, there's a party at the distillery to celebrate the release.
