The lock-out laws may have decimated bars, pubs and clubs in and around the Cross, but they certainly haven't dented the dining scene. Potts Point's restaurants are flourishing, from BYO dumpling houses all the way up to vegetarian fine-diner Yellow and its sister restaurant Monopole. Likewise, whether you're feeling Italian, Chinese, Japanese or Indian, there's a place to find it.
