  • A fresh take on Japanese izakaya dining.

  • This “unapologetically Indian” diner packs in all the colour and fun you’d expect from the Ezra team. Its ex-Firedoor chef is repping the best of the country’s cuisine, with dishes like a scene-stealing mud crab that requires a bib to tackle.

  • Whether you’re stopping in for that iconic lasagnette bolognaise or just a snack, Frat Paz nails it every time. Its groundbreaking wine list introduced the city to many minimal-intervention styles we're now obsessed with.

  • Potts Point just scored Caravin, a Parisian restaurant and wine bar from the team behind Surry Hills favourite, Bar Suze. The menu is all about French fare with a twist, and the wine list balances natural drops and classic French varietals.

  • A spot at Kisuke’s six-seat omakase counter is the closest you’ll get to Tokyo without leaving the city. Chef Yusuke Morita prepares raw and hibachi-grilled dishes before you as you dine. You’re in his hands, and all the better for it.


  • From Neil Perry to Josh Niland, top chefs love this heaving spot and its "everyday" brunch fare for good reason. Soaking up the European vibe in Llankelly Place with a plate of eggs and caponata is peak Sydney.

  • This is more showroom than cafe, with coffee from one of Sydney's most experienced baristas.
