Pretend your on holidays in your own city, get dressed up, treat yourself and have fun and some of the newest restaurants to hit the Sydney food scene.
Automata – Two Hats
This jazzy new restaurant in Chippendale (yep, the hottest new spot for food and wine) set the culinary world alight in its first year receiving two hats straight off the mark, which is no mean feat.
Automata is a set-menu venue, that champions quality Australian produce with a sophisticated twist. The menu is constantly changing with the seasons and is open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday, and for lunch Friday and Saturday.
Take yourself out of your comfort zone and experience some truly great modern Australian food.

2. Cirrus Dining – Two Hats
Cirrus Dining is being heralded as the Sydney seafood experience, and whilst the view may not be Bondi, eating world class seafood overlooking Pyrmont Bay isn’t too shabby.
Cirrus Dining celebrates both Sydney and seafood, and sources its produce from the finest local growers and sustainably caught seafood.
The reviews are coming in thick and fast as not just the newest, but the best seafood restaurant in Sydney, and was named in Good Food Guides “Australia’s Top 10 Hot New Restaurants 2017”.
Cirrus Dining is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

3. Saint Peter – Two hats
New kid on the block Josh Niland is the young Sydney chef who is serving up a uniquely fun menu with zero apologies. His menu is entirely Australian seafood, and its wine list is 80% white.
Josh Niland received Gourmet Traveller’s Best New Talent award for 2018, and he’s not even 30.
This young gun is serving up expertly cooked seafood and isn’t afraid to be playful with his menu. Go to Saint Peter’s now, because in 10 years’ time it might take months to get into one of Niland’s restaurants.
Oh, Saint Peters is also open for brunch Saturday and Sunday, if you were ever looking for a creative way to eat seafood at 11 am with a glass of champagne.
