Tempting Your Palate at the Best Restaurants in Sydney

April 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 181

Being booked in a Sydney 5-star hotel more or less assures one of amazing gourmet meals, world-class menus and other gustatory delights. However, if you don't get out and about and explore, you'll be missing the opportunity to see why Sydney is fast becoming one of the culinary capitals of the world!

In the past, many people tended to denigrate this Australian city as a foodie wasteland where the only things to eat were chips, burgers and beer. Those days have long passed- now one can count of a vast number of gourmet-level delights, whether within the restaurants inside one's Sydney 5-star hotel or within the CBD and further afield.

Here are just a few of the wonderful choices to be had for fine dining should one deign to venture away from that luxurious Sydney 5-star hotel.

Becasse. Westfield Sydney, Level 5, Market St (Cnr Pitt St). While Michelin still has not included Australia in its research and ratings systems, Sydney boasts a few establishments that are definite shoo-ins if they do! Becasse boasts opulent interiors - including Swarovski crystal light fittings and luxurious drapes - and even more luxurious food offerings from famed chef Justin North. It is now one of the most sought-after restaurants in the city. Among the most widely celebrated items on the menu are the confit miso blue-eye and smoked scallops, caramelised suckling pig, and the full-blooded Wagyu shin. Make sure you have the concierge at your Sydney 5-star hotel call for reservations- it can be hard to get in!

Tetsuya's. 529 Kent St. Another Michelin surefire shoo-in should they ever deign to issue a guide to the restaurants in Australia [hint, hint], this amazing restaurant in Kent Street, overlooking a Japanese Garden, is a perfect place to spend the evening away from your Sydney 5-star hotel. Chef Tetsuya Wakuda's ever-evolving menu features complex flavours from Japanese and French cuisine merged in experimental combinations - definitely not to be missed. If you only have one chance to dine here, make sure to order the signature dish: confit of Tasmanian Ocean trout with konbu. Or, if you simply can decide, try the degustation menu which offers the best of the best.

Bistro Lilly. 168 Kent St., The Rocks For a more relaxing, yet still oh-so-stylish, dining experience, Bistro Lilly offers dinner and more, either in the confines of an elegant dining room or a garden terrace - for whatever occasion you may wish to celebrate. A quiet, yet upscale hideaway in the historic Observatory Tower, you won't have to venture far from your Sydney 5-star hotel to enjoy a romantic dinner for two, corporate lunch, or special celebration. Try Chef David Koorey's signature five-course degustation menu paired with the best Australian wines.

If fine dining isn't really your style, Sydney is also home to fun, relaxing places - particularly those that serve wonderful seafood. Try Wildfire or Waterfront for a start. If you fancy a juicy burger, fish and chips or other casual, yet yummy fare away from the luxury of your Sydney 5-star hotel, you'll have an endless array of options.
