To get to the CBD’s new Bowery Lane, you step inside a set of office-like sliding glass doors. But rather than walking straight into another of Sydney’s sky-high office buildings, a sharp left will take you into what feels like a Manhattan loft. Copper piping complements black leather seating here, and a few fiddle leaf figs add a nice green touch to the dining room.

For breakfast, you’ll find gussied-up standards such as a house take on an eggs benedict; a potato rosti served with broccolini, sriracha-spiked hollondaise and your choice of salmon, bacon or haloumi. Small, shareable snacks and bowls take the stage at lunchtime, from beetroot-cured Hiramasa kingfish to a Korean-inspired chicken and rice bowl. There are also large format proteins such as lamb rump with carrot purée, green peas, pickled onion, sumac and jus. The chilli crab linguine is a particular highlight.

Cocktails are named for NYC favourites; try a Mulberry Street Negroni, where the classic is stirred down with house-made cold-drip coffee, or a New York Sour. There are also beers by Young Henrys.

A smaller, adjacent market-style deli counter serves quick and easy lunch options, from sandwiches to smaller versions of the dinner plates. It’s all complemented with coffee by Single Origin Roasters.
