From the iconic Opera House to a Heritage terrace in the backstreets of Paddington, French chef Guillaume Brahimi continues to execute food of the highest standard. Your experience won't come cheap but the best things rarely are.
With restaurants in Japan and the UK and finally, household name Bill Granger has opened in his own neighborhood at Bondi. Bill's famous ricotta hotcakes and corn fritters will be on the menu at the 100-seater restaurant but, to shake things up, he's teamed up with Messina, offering a ricotta hotcake gelato. Perfect to cool you down after a day at the beach!
The restaurant may be smaller than your living room at home but the standard of food will undoubtedly be better than what you'll make in your own kitchen. Charred yakitori skewers are the order of the day – with your standard pork belly et al options, however, be game and try some of their offal specialities such as chicken heart, gizzard or liver.
After recent renovations, this Waverly stalwart has emerged with a top chef in the kitchen (Matt Kemp), an experienced team running the hotel and a fresh new fitout. Great for a pub meal on a Friday night or book a table in the restaurant and order the crispy pigs head, it's a must.
You've probably already seen photos of LP's on our favourite food blogger's instagram accounts – their smoked Toulouse sausage and lamb belly are among the most uploaded food items of 2014 and one visit to this Chippendale restaurant and you'll understand why. Smoking is their specialty but cured dishes come a close second.

Taking over the former site of Ripples, LuMi Bar and Dining delivers a refreshingly creative Italian dining experience. With former Ormeggio head chef at the helm, Federico Zanellato, expect Italian classics, served with a Japanese twist. Head to the Pyrmont markets on a Saturday morning and then book a table for lunch at LuMi.
From the Spice I Am group, Surry Hills Eating House ventures into unchartered territory with a menu that not only has roots in Thailand but also Malaysia, Singapore and even China. Don't be put off by the fact you have to order drinks at the bar, the food is worth the unconventional process.
There's no slowing down the Queen of Rice Paper Rolls. From its original Darlinghurst tuckshop to an underground hawker stall in the CBD and now to the harbour at Elizabeth Bay, this new hotspot will offer everything from Bourke Street Bakery pastries for breakfast to MissChu dumplings and rice paper rolls for lunch.
It's not exactly new but it has reopened for the summer season. This beachside venue has played host to the likes of Cate Blanchett and Baz Luhrmann but it's also very popular among the discerning Northern Beaches crowd. Plus, this season they're offering a pick up and drop off service for customers as far away as North Avalon.
From the Inner West to the Inner East, Shenkin has swung open its doors in Surry Hills, delivering its signature Israeli cuisine, coupled with the smooth blend of Mecca coffee. On the Oxford Street end of Crown, Shenkin is serving all our Israeli favourites such as pulled beef shakshuka and falafel and hummus plates, with its signature side of humble hospitality.
