PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

More than a business lunch destination, Janus offers sophisticated Italian fare in a buzzing city location. On the corner of Castlereagh, Hunter and Bligh Street, Janus is perfect for people watching – diners can sit outside and watch as office workers briskly carry about their day. With the original Janus already up and running in Darling Quarter, this Bligh Street restaurant is the second for brother and sister owners, George and Kristy Michael. The fit out is slick and sophisticated, but not without character. With indoor and outdoor seating options, diners can choose to perch under colourful public art sculptures outside or hide inside the impressive Bligh Street atrium. The glass counter is the main attraction, boasting a range of multi-coloured macarons and delicate desserts.

Divided into antipasti, bruschetta, panini, insalate and pizza, the menu is sizeable. An entree-size linguine vongole is plentiful with chilli, garlic and parsley, dripping with just the right amount of oil that doesn't jeopardise flavour without making you feel heavy and lethargic. A salad of smoked salmon, olives, capers and roasted peppers is fresh and flavoursome - again, without a heavy dressing. The standout dish however, was the hazelnut ganache with sesame croquant and coffee choc sponge. It is simply divine and serves as the perfect Monday-afternoon pick-me-up.

With the Sydney skyline as a backdrop, Janus also offers an exclusive roof top function area that can hold up to 150 people. With a range of function packages available, Janus can cater for canapé events, cocktail parties, corporate functions or any special occasion.
