Good Foodstuff Manual 2022 NSW: The It List

Fine Sydney diners at the leading of their activity.

Bentley Cafe

Welcome to good eating, the 2022 edition. Where anything is just that very little much more comforting. Wherever slivers of tender kangaroo meat may well be chargrilled tableside and placed on puffy, yielding minimal naan. Where by tacos, infused with kelp and crammed with Balmain bug, appear finished with cape gooseberry, Yarra Valley trout roe and shreds of shiso leaf. We won’t be able to wait to go again.

LuMi Eating

Federico Zanellato life in a environment of umami. The Italian-born, Japanese-motivated chef operates with sea urchin, caviar, porcini, koshihikari rice, truffle butter, miso, shiitake, lobster and quail. Dish just after dish flows from the kitchen area like a parade of magic tips, as lights from the glass-walled cafe glitter on the harbour like fireflies.

You would think that Peter Gilmore would operate out of surprises right after 20 years at the helm of this glamorous, immaculately operate harbourside cafe, but no. A journey of six or eight programs is all thriller and no filler, from bone marrow noodles tangled with ribbons of squid and sea cucumber crackling, to sea-sweet lobster with ginger-scented milk curd like a wonderful chawanmushi.
