A regular in The World’s 50 Best list, Attica offers emotional, boundary-pushing Australian cuisine at its very best. Ben Shewry’s multi-course tasting menu draws on local myths and personal experiences to reimagine native ingredients. Think bunya nuts, finger limes and unusual herbs, mostly grown on neighbouring Rippon Lea Estate. An equally adventurous drinks list includes everything from cold smoked apple juice to serious South-Australian skin-contact wines. Reservations are taken on the first Wednesday of each month for the following three months and are typically filled within hours. Set a reminder and act fast.
