There are a few quintessential vantage points around Sydney for which to fully absorb the magnificent views, and The Star’s Sky Terrace is most certainly Pyrmont’s primary position. Knowing that they have the perfect summer spot for events, The Star will be pushing more session-type events for their picturesque rooftop space alongside pop-up bars, and menus from the precinct’s renowned restaurants....

Popular CBD Japanese restaurant Yayoi Sydney is now Yayoi Garden, and while the interior has the same casual elegance, the menu has slightly changed, with set tasting menus introduced to reflect the spring-summer season, while the sake list is even more extensive than before. My previous visit was a pleasant experience, delivering a Japanese dining experience which would rather stick to authenticity than water themselves down for the sake of accessibility; I was expecting no less when I walked through those big doors off Bridge St, greeted by the same meticulous service all good Japanese restaurants deliver....

You’ll find Geisha Haus tucked away upstairs via a nondescript entrance on Roslyn St, right next to Gastro Park.

As far as burgers go, Jimmy “The Burger Lord” Hurlston, also known as the man behind Jimmy’s Burgers, just may be the most experienced and well-traveled guy in history. He has spent years trekking all over the world tackling one of the most famous food creations of all time, attempting to eat, record, and review an outrageous amount of burgers. It then makes sense that after all these years of scoffing down burgers, cooking up his own creations for other venues, and even publishing a book on burgers, that Hurlston would become co-owner of an unprecedented burger restaurant and bar in Melbourne – one that is five stories high....

Further to our look at Kiyomi last week, we also explored the other new restaurant leading the charge in the $345 million transformation that is sweeping through Jupiters Gold Coast. Italian restaurant Cucina Vivo is in stark contrast to Kiyomi in design; whereas the neighbouring Japanese restaurant is dimly lit and moody, Cucina is endearingly bright with the added bonus of having a massive outdoor dining area overlooking Jupiters’ revitalised pool area....

Acclaimed Sydney restaurant Flying Fish are in the midst of a menu change, preparing for autumn with a brand new range of tempting dishes. With food as stunning as that million dollar view at the Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont, the award winning restaurant remains one of the cities best and so we thought it’d be good to preview their new autumn menu with a dish from Executive Chef Stephen Seckold. This here is their Stout Cake with fermented fig jam, blackberries, and pearl barley ice-cream.... Read More | Share it now!
Gold Coast’s Jupiters is in the midst of a $345 million dollar refurbishment, aimed at completely revitalising the impressive building from the endearingly simple pool area to the in-house dining scene. I was kindly flown up there to check out the two starry restaurants that have opened due to the transformation, the first of which was Kiyomi, a modern Japanese restaurant opened by celebrated chef Chase Kojima of Sydney’s Sokyo fame....
