Stefano Manfredi's Recommendations

Restaurants:
Special occasion at LuMi Bar and Dining
LuMi Dining on the end of the finger wharf in Pyrmont. It's new, it's modern and casual and Federico Zanellato is a great cook with an impeccable pedigree. I especially love the marinated bonito with eggplant.
Best kept secret at Blue Eye Dragon
Blue Eye Dragon is not really a secret but I'm constantly surprised at how many people don't know this wonderful Taiwanese restaurant in a backstreet in Pyrmont. Great dumplings made in house and I love the pork cheeks.
Late night dining at Love, Tilly Devine
Love Tilly Devine is small but open late. I love the weird and wonderful wines and late night snacks like the slow roasted octopus with potato and mayo.
