Damien Brassel's Recommendations

Restaurants:
Favourite international restaurant at Daniel
Daniel in New York. Daniel Boulud is an established and incredibly talented chef. Classically trained in French cuisine, his techniques and culinary vision that come through in his vision never cease to impress. Amazing established chef. Incredible food.
Best kept secret at Ester
Ester Restaurant and Bar - not so much a secret now that they won Best New Restaurant in the SMH Good Food Awards for 2015, but again great food and friendly service.
Late night dining at Golden Century Seafood Restaurant
Golden Century. This is truly a hospitality institution. It's open late till 3am every night and serves up great seafood.
Special occasion at Quay
Quay - This restaurant is brilliant for the whole package. The incredible food, impeccable service and of course the view. All of this creates a very special experience.
Best cafe at Shot Cafe
Shot on Military by Aydin and Fiona Kumral is a top cafe on the lower north shore with great coffee.
