Sat in the Sydney Opera House, this multi-level restaurant offers everything from a casual ‘cured and cultured’ bar, serving snacks such as red claw crayfish with cream, to a formal dining room boasting waterfront views. An iconic setting calls for an iconic chef, and Peter Gilmore steps up to the pass with aplomb. Less boundary-pushing than Gilmore’s other restaurant, Quay, his menus showcase the flavour, diversity and quality of seasonal Australian produce in deconstructed versions of comfort classics. Think John Dory smothered in umami butter and a whimsical take on a lamington. The wine cellar is equally celebratory.
