Beloved by off-duty chefs, Ester gets back to basics in the best possible way. The fit out is minimal, mood informal and selection of wood-fired small plates ruthlessly streamlined. Mat Lindsay – who honed his craft at Sydney favourites Billy Kwong and Rockpool – has the confidence to let locally sourced ingredients do most of the talking. Signature dishes include a blood sausage sandwich and king prawns doused in fermented shrimp butter. Organic and biodynamic wines characterise the clever drinks list, which also boasts an interesting selection of oranges wines. Bag yourself one of the hottest seats in Sydney.
