Whether you seek indulgence in modern Asian or a big Greek feast, there’s a venue to fulfil your wishes. So here are the best one’s in town, we’ll leave the company in your capable hands.
Salt Meats Cheese just opened in Circular Quay, and it is everything that you would imagine, and then some. The interiors are gorgeous and the food is delicious. Indecisive eaters in the group? Not a problem. At $65 per person, the Chefs Selection of dishes covers everything; fresh, creamy burrata to fried pizza with dip, ragu of wagyu beef, pork cheeks and tiramisu. Come summer you will be having your aperol alfresco style with the opening of their rooftop in December.
