Mr. Wong

Establishment Precinct, George Street, CBD

In this spacious yet intimate restaurant, traditional Cantonese cuisine is served with many modern flourishes. With a moody atmosphere created by the dim lighting and soft jazz music playing in the background, Mr. Wong is the perfect location for a date or a dinner catch-up with a friend. Get cosy in one of the many nooks for two and be spoilt for choice with a selection of up to 80 different dishes with the barbecue ducks being a favourite among most guests. Dumpling fans will swoon over the dumpling station, where an army of busy chefs work with quick, deft hands to create that steamed goodness that China is famous for. And for lovers of prawn toast and other rich delicacies, Mr Wong’s version includes foie gras.

Mary Street, Surry Hills

With a kitchen solely powered by wood fire, Firedoor is committed to quality, sustainability and a primal dining experience. With a menu that changes daily based upon the fresh ingredients available, dishes can range from snow crab to grilled Bundarra pork, the highlight being a mouth-watering 190-day aged rib beef valued at $200 per kilogram. Chef Lennox Hastie (formerly of grill mecca Asador Etxebarri in Spain) – uses eleven kinds of wood to add a subtle smokiness to all dishes. We all know Spaniards love their wine, so it’s no surprise that for three consecutive years, Firedoor has held the award for Best Wine List in Australia. Indulge in a shiraz or a chardonnay while enjoying a dynamic dining experience to write home about.

Bouillon l’Entrecôte

Gateway Sydney, Loftus Street

Without the splendid view across bustling Circular Quay, when dining at Bouillon l’Entrecôte one might think they were sitting in a charming Parisian restaurant. With a vintage approach to the décor and authentic French dishes for both lunch and dinner, the eatery mesmerises its guests with style and the scent of fabulous French feasts. Choose traditional yet innovative dishes in an unforgettable three-course meal – such as a cheesy twice-baked soufflé for an entrée, followed by a 200-gram sirloin served with the kitchen’s famous secret sauce, and one of the Bouillon’s tasty thrice-baked caramelised upside-down apple tarts. They are lip-smackingly good.

Pellegrino 2000

Campbell Street, Surry Hills

Pellegrino is a household name that most associate with the sparkling mineral water. The eatery, located on the corner of Campbell and Foster Street, resembles a traditional trattoria straight from the streets of Rome. With a lively main dining room on the ground-level and a candle-lit wine cellar down below, the venue is cosy, spacious and flooded with the scent of food made with love. Tuck into the kitchen’s handmade tortellini, pappardelle Bolognese or fritto misto, and pick a Barolo or a Chianti from a carefully curated wine list. Pellegrino 2000 offers guests a laid back yet first-class dining experience and some of the best Italian fare dished up in Sydney. Saluti to that!

Saint Peter

Oxford Street, Paddington

Named after the biblical fisherman, Saint Peter is the brainchild of decorated Head Chef, innovator and founder Josh Niland, who holds a firm spot as one of the world’s top 100 best chefs. His sustainable seafood strategy focuses on gill-to-fin cooking – meaning he uses all of the fish that he orders. Sadly, two-thirds of the fish Australians eat is thrown away, and Josh set out to change how people eat this precious resource. Even dessert at Saint Peter contains fish, as Niland uses flavourless carcass elements to replace ingredients such as gelatine. To secure a table, bookings need to be made weeks in advance, as the venue only hosts up to 30 guests.
