So many places to eat and only so little time. Maintaining a foodie lifestyle can be stressful on many levels, so whilst we can’t guarantee the welfare of your hips (or your hip pocket) we have removed the need for you to find failsafe dining options this weekend.
Give these 6 Sydney restaurants a visit; they’re sure to keep your belly happy all weekend long.
Situated within the MediTrainean restaurant, Blue Caboose is bringing a touch of the Mediterranean back home. Cocktails, wine, tapas and… crepes? Yes, we said crepes. Enjoy a range of shared boards, tapas and kebabs, finishing off with crepes for dessert. Perhaps pair them with a craft cocktail? These guys assure us that cocktails and crepes are a combo that works. This is the perfect place to graze and sip for lunch, dinner or anywhere in between.
With menu that focuses on seafood (we’re hungry already) Lotus Dining is a place where pleasure and indulgence are a plenty. An abundance of dumplings grace the menu, amongst other creative dishes. Make sure you try the handmade mung bean noodles and of course the BBQ duck. Lotus Dining know how to put on a seriously good looking spread.
In the heart of Darlinghurst lies Classico Moderno. A true gem that combines traditional Italian flavours with modern dining. Classico Moderno takes you on a journey through Italy’s Emilia-Romagna, starting in the mountains filtering all the way to the ocean. Three 6-course menus are the go to here with each one inspired by the land, meat, the coast, seafood and the valley, otherwise known as the vego option. If you’re not vibing the 6 courses, build your own 3-course meal. There is something for everyone and plenty of wine options to match. Obviously, we’re going to have to visit these guys at least three times to try each menu, no point pretending like we can choose just one.
Keeping the café scene of Annandale zesty (see what we did there?) Lemonia is producing fresh creative meals all day, everyday. And, much to our delight they are now open from 6pm-late throughout spring. So #whenlifegivesyoulemonia head to the Inner West and see what this little cottage turned Mediterranean café has to offer, our bet is it’ll spruce up your day.
Wholefoods Dept are striving to create a more wholesome and vibrant community through good food and good living. There are so many scrumptious options to choose from, it’s overwhelming starting with the Green Buddha Bowl. With a variety of smoothies and juices Wholefoods Dept is a great place to refuel after a Saturday morning workout, or the perfect location to get some work done whilst enjoying a golden latte in the outdoor sunlit courtyard.
Three levels, three bars, three menus. Okay, let’s just take this one level at a time. The ground floor is home to the public bar housing copious amount of wines including a few cheeky limited editions. Level 2 is the athletics club, a sports bar where the beer and whisky are flowing freely. Atop of the building is of course, a rooftop. How we love rooftops in summer. Enjoy the views of Sydney’s skyline whilst having a yarn and sipping on cocktails. The guys at East Village have nailed it and we can’t wait to spend a few warm summer nights perusing between the bars.
