So, to whittle down your foodie hit list, we are taste-testing our way around town to reveal the hottest new restaurants on the Sydney dining scene. These are the best new restaurants in Sydney that are so worth clearing a space in your diary for.
Joining the ranks of Potts Point’s flourishing dining scene, SUNDAY is a sophisticated-yet-friendly neighbourhood restaurant and bar showcasing hearty plates with a playful take on traditional cuisine. The rotisserie is at the heart of the restaurant and the free-range, chemical and hormone-free Bannockburn Chicken is the star of the show. Pair their humble cuisine with a bespoke pre-batched cocktail, and you can expect to take your quiet little dinner to the next level!

The Bentley Group's new dining destination in the heart of Potts Point is serving up sumptuous slices and soul-warming drops. Ria Pizza + Wine takes everyone's favourites and gives them a refresh.

Opening late last year amidst the COVID-19 restrictions, the Bodega Team's newest opening packs a flavour-infused punch. For a hearty feast, may we suggest ordering the bullhorn pepper stuffed with anchovy and salsa verde, the corn agnolotti with brown butter, capers and sage, and the stracciatella, paired with an Italian vino. Absolutely delicious!
