Chef John Nilland (of Cafe Nice) has opened a seafood restaurant in Sydney’s Paddington and the focus is on sustainably sourced, Australian-only seafood prepared in many ways. The menu features a classic fish and chips-style meal with the batter a mix of vodka, honey, rice flour and VB, alongside seafood dishes with their own unique flair. Exhibit A is the Cleveland Bay halibut for 2 with 40 (yes, 40) cloves of garlic & native thyme. Has any seafood dish ever sounded better?
On weekends, they put on a seafood-focussed brunch, which you should definitely keep in mind the next time you're in the mood for a little something different, since there are dishes like sea urchin crumpets, and hand picked spanner crab omlettes on the menu.
