Bouche on Bridge

Bouche on Bridge

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be invited to lunch at Bouche on Bridge. I’m not sure what to rave about first, the food or the service, as both were outstanding. Amazingly, the restaurant opened just 8 weeks ago, but I couldn’t tell as it runs so...
William Blue Dining The Rocks

William Blue Dining The Rocks

In their own words “William Blue Dining gives (their) vocational students the chance to learn upmarket food and beverage service skills in a live environment”. Having dined at their old restaurant in North Sydney, I decided to take my aunt, uncle and two...

The Grounds of Alexandria – revisited

The Grounds of Alexandria – revisited

I went to The Grounds, as it is known as for short, a couple of weeks ago, for a coffee meetup with a few fellow solopreneurs. Amazingly, it was the first time I had been in almost a year, despite it being one of my favourite Sydney cafes. Why was this? Unfortunately,...

Burgers by Josh Pop-Up at the Annandale Hotel

I first had Burgers by Josh (or BBJ, as it is affectionately known by its fans) at The Spectrum Festival in the Domain a few months ago, and was immediately smitten. So when I found out that it was popping up for the month of April at The Annandale Hotel, just down...

O Bar & Dining

O Bar & Dining

When my cousin said she was coming up to Sydney, from Melbourne, for the weekend, I racked my brains on where we should dine last Friday night. I wanted somewhere with a view, but also great food and service. As I have mentioned before, a lot of restaurants with a...
Tella Balls Dessert Bar

Tella Balls Dessert Bar

Tella Balls Dessert Bar is proof that the best things come to those who wait! I finally went to their cafe in Dulwich Hill, and was lucky enough to go with some friends plus the brother of the owner, who gave me all the inside info. They were supposed to open about 18...

I had lunch today at UTS Haberfield Rowing Club with friends. Overlooking Iron Cove Bay, on the famous ‘Bay Run’, UTS received a huge makeover in 2013 and comprises of a large dining area upstairs (seating upto 220) and rowing club downstairs. I have eaten...
The Stinking Bishops

The Stinking Bishops

If you love cheese as much as me, you will think you have died and gone to heaven as soon as you walk in the door or The Stinking Bishops and see the huge list of cheese options on the wall. We were lucky enough to get 2 seats at the bar within about 5 minutes or...
Drummoyne Sailing Club

Drummoyne Sailing Club

Last night I dropped 1,500 receipts back at a client’s house, which I had entered in Excel for her. On the way home, we decided to drop into Drummoyne Sailing Club for dinner. I can safely say that this was one of the best spontaneous decisions I have made...
Aqua Dining

Aqua Dining

A couple of days ago, my boyfriend and I were taking out friends from the UK who were only in Sydney for a few days. We wanted somewhere with a view of course, as one does with overseas guests, and eventually decided on Aqua Dining. I had been here before, but not for...

Intercontinental Sydney Supperclub

Intercontinental Sydney Supperclub

Once upon a time you had to go to Melbourne if you wanted a decent rooftop bar. Not anymore. And I can safely say there is not a rooftop bar in Melbourne with views like this. Or anywhere in the world for that matter. Until about a year ago, if you wanted to visit...
The Palisades Hotel: Henry Deane Rooftop Bar

The Palisades Hotel: Henry Deane Rooftop Bar

It’s all about the views here. The roof terrace at The Palisades Hotel is great, but I think they rest on their laurels a bit, thanks to the stunning 270-degree views of the Harbour Bridge, city and Barangaroo. I have been twice since it opened a few weeks ago,...
Botte D’Oro

Botte D’Oro

Last weekend my partner and I moved from Forest Lodge to Leichhardt. After a lovely Christmas and hectic few days unpacking, last night we decided to do as the Romans do and try a local Italian restaurant. The first one we came to was La Botte D’Oro and what a...
Bennelong Restaurant: Cured & Cultured

Bennelong Restaurant: Cured & Cultured

A week last Sunday, a good friend from Melbourne told me that she would be in Sydney for a couple of days and was I free for dinner on Tuesday night. That gave me just 48 hours to find somewhere fabulous. I like to take overseas and interstate guests somewhere with a...
Matilda the Musical and dinner at The Star

Matilda the Musical and dinner at The Star

Last night, I finally saw Matilda the Musical at The Star. I have been wanting to watch it since I read the reviews of it on London’s West End! To be honest, I could hardly remember the story beforehand…I had read Roald Dahl’s book as a child, but...
The Theatre Bar at the End of The Wharf

The Theatre Bar at the End of The Wharf

Last Tuesday, I went to see the hilarious Wharf Revue at Sydney Theatre Company. We ummed and aaahed about where to go for dinner beforehand. We thought about the revamped Pallisades Hotel, the newly named View by Sydney (was Dedes on the Wharf) and old faithful Cafe...

Lûmé

Lûmé

Old Clare Hotel

Old Clare Hotel

After a long hiatus, The Old Clare Hotel recently reopened! It is certainly the centrepiece of the $2 billion redevelopment of the former Carlton United Brewery site as Kensington Street laneway precint. You can stay here of course, in one of the luxury hotel rooms....
Spanish Tapas

Spanish Tapas

A spontaneous night out on Saturday led to dinner at Spanish Tapas. Living just 15 walks away, I can’t believe I had not been here earlier. We chose to sit outside as it was a very warm evening, which meant unfortunately that we did not get a great view of the...
Watershed Kitchen

Watershed Kitchen

I dined at Watershed Kitchen for the first time yesterday. It was just brunch, but I have a feeling I will be back very soon. In addition to the lovely water views and great service, the food is good. Okay, my toast was a bit dry, but nothing the hollandaise sauce...
