Where To Celebrate In Sydney

I got married at Quay and our wedding anniversary is a great excuse to keep going back. The location is outstanding and the menu is constantly evolving which keeps it interesting. Sixpenny is an intimate fine diner in Stanmore. The tasting menu there is a great option when celebrating a special occasion.

Snacks At The Wine Bar

For more casual dining, I’m loving Poly, a wine bar in Surry Hills. The snacks there are really tasty and there are lots of great options on the wine list. 

Where To Take A Group (or the Family)

At the moment, my favourite local eatery that welcomes groups and families is Barzaari in Marrickville. The chef there is Daryl Martin who is a great cook. He has his own approach to Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food. Everything is made in house. The meats are wood fired or cooked over charcoal. The vegetarian offering – from the falafels to the sides – is fantastic as well. It truly is a family-run restaurant and you can feel it in the generosity of the hospitality. It’s a place where you can go with the family and always feel welcome.

The City’s Favourite Yakitori

To experience the local scene, Darlinghurst yakitori-style restaurant Chaco Bar is a great option. It’s small and only fits 25 people and serves excellent grilled meats as well as a great beer and sake list.

Where Staff Go After Work

French Restaurant Hubert is just around the corner from Bentley, our restaurant in the CBD, so it’s the ideal option for a late-night meal or drink after work. The fit-out is really immersive so it’s a great escape for the staff after a long night.

This is where you say something cool and awesome about this website and business. Can be whatever the hell you want.
