Turn off everything in the kitchen. Clean out your fridge. Hop in the passenger seat, sit back and relax. We’re offering you and three friends the chance to be chauffeured around town in a stylish new Honda HR-V, to enjoy dinner at some of the city’s best restaurants – every night for a week. That’s right, for seven consecutive days in September you’ll be wined, dined, picked up and taken home, all on Broadsheet and the Honda HR-V.
Here’s the plan.
The week-long tour of Sydney’s best spots begins at The Dolphin in Surry Hills. Pizza is a favourite at this casual diner, where a good deal of the menu is sourced locally and sits alongside a 150-plus-strong wine list by sommelier James Hird.
Long Chim will serve Thai street food with a deft touch and attention to detail. Noodles arrived from south-east Thailand, fish sauce is made in-house and the bar blends flavours from the kitchen into drinks that balance salty, sweet, sour and spicy to perfection.
Dinner at Bacco Osteria e Espresso. The regularly changing menu here is short and sweet. Simple and traditional Italian dishes from the country’s many regions are paired with a 70-strong wine list of predominantly Italian drops.
Seafood is the speciality at Cirrus at Barangaroo. Go all out with the spectacular seafood platter of oysters, Skull Island prawns, strawberry clams, ocean bugs and pipis with seaweed mayo ponzu and red-wine vinaigrette for dipping. The wine list is made to complement the menu, with a particular focus on white wine and lighter reds.
Bodega 1904 brings Spanish flair to Forest Lodge. Settle in for tapas at the bar (you can watch the show in the open kitchen from here), or nestle into a cosy booth and order more substantial plates. The wine list is almost entirely Australian and Spanish.
Celebrate the weekend with an evening at ACME. The attention to detail comes from the eponymous hospitality all-stars behind the venue – Andy Emerson (The Passage); Cam Fairbairn (The Passage, Pinbone); Mitchell Orr (Duke Bistro, 121BC); and Ed Loveday (The Passage). Pasta and Mediterranean fare sit alongside a long wine list, meticulously put together with the expertise of the ex-Passage crew.
Finish the week with dinner at Saint Peter, where the specialty is seasonal vegetables and fresh all-Australian fish. The menu changes daily, but always features an artichoke-caramel tart and bread made locally at Brookvale’s Berkelo Bakery.
Seven Dinners in Seven Nights will run from September 11 to 17. Don’t miss this one. Fill in the form below by September 4 for your chance to win.
