Good Food in Sydney

The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide for 2004 is out, and so are the hats. Looks like there some more restuarants to add to my todo list. harbourkitchen&bar is coming up for my first year wedding anniversary, so that’s one I can strike off the list. Time to start hammering the Entertainment Book.

  1. Oh yeah… the Entertainment book rocks. Went to Ash’s on Saturday night. However, out of the ‘gold pages’, we went to Alio a few months back – well wortht it. One hat is spot on.

    Major pass on Icebergs though. Was taken there through work about 3 months back, it was good, not great. Amazing vista though. Lucky to get 2 hats IMHO.

  2. I can’t comment on Rockpool. I went to Wockpool though when it was open. It had that real “I should’ve just visited my grandma for dinner” kind of feel. The Mahjong Room is like that as well. Its good if your relatives can’t cook that kinda thing for you though 🙂

  3. Whilst some of the 2/3 hat restaurants are fantastic, you have to weight up all the factors, including the $$$. Tets was brilliant when I went there many moons ago, but the cost was well… just a little pricey.

    Grappa gets a hat, but its location bites!! Balzac well deserves the two, that’s for sure, and at those prices – what a brilliant little restaurant.
