Review: 12-Micron is a stunning new entry on The Streets of Barangaroo (Sydney)

What is Australian cuisine, and in particular, modern Australian cuisine? At 12-Micron, this means creating a space that showcases the very best this country has to offer, from the cuisine to the interior, from the produce to the plates they ultimately sit on. This is what Barangaroo’s latest stands for right down to its namesake, after the desirable fine 12-micron wool fibre which, much like an ingredient in the kitchen, can be refined into something beautiful and delicious....

Barangaroo serves up the impressive 12-Micron restaurant and late-night dessert bar (Sydney)

Our 23 favourite Sydney restaurants, bars and cafes of 2016

Why 23? Are you turning into Buzzfeed with your arbitrary numbers based on how much you can be bothered googling and presenting to your readers as some kind of faux-authoritative listicle they’ll share with their friends and be like “omgod dis so me fo’ real, fam. Sc-uhhh-reaming!”? Well, not quite. There has been too many great openings in Sydney as of late, so we had to stretch the below list from the originally planned 20 to 23 because it was just too damn hard to leave even one of these out. ...

Untied: Barangaroo’s first rooftop bar comes from the same team behind The Norfolk (Sydney)

Modern Australian influences drip all over Barangaroo’s new rooftop bar, which is now open and comes to us from Dixon Hospitality, the fine folk behind institutions like The Norfolk and Forresters. Dubbed Untied, the breezy indoor-outdoor addition to the flash precinct is a light-hearted look at Australiana through the lens of Queensland’s tropical rainforests, meaning that guests are greeted with lush greenery pairing with the bar’s external green stairwell, and sleek, vivid colourful furniture spread through the 260-capacity space....

Review: Devon Cafe brings their award winning food to Barangaroo (Sydney)

A few years ago, Surry Hills’ much awarded Devon Cafe expanded to include a spin-off a few suburbs over, gifting Waterloo Devon on Danks, an enormously popular venture that allowed for some bigger turns into the flavour-rich world of Asian fusion. As an essential brunch destination, the cafe dominated Danks street right up until it was sadly closed down earlier this year, leaving space for an expansion to the increasingly crowded Barangaroo precinct. It seems Sydney’s slick new waterfront destination couldn’t do without one of the most consistent cafes in the city, as if Belles Hot Chicken, Banksii, Ume Burger, and a 5-in-1 emporium wasn’t enough....

Nestled in Barangaroo Reserve’s Nawi Cove will be a new iteration of Taste Orange set for later this month. The cool-climate food and wine festival dedicated completely to Orange has become best known around Sydney for its annual two-day celebration at Martin Place each September, and Barangaroo’s turn to host a new expression of the event will no doubt be building upon that success, providing a deeper insight into what has made Orange one of the fastest growing food and wine destinations in the state....

Ume Burger opens on Barangaroo’s Wulugul Walk (Sydney)

If you to too have felt the pains and pangs of arriving to Kerby Craig’s wildly popular burger pop ups, which he began two years ago, only to hear the dreaded phrase “sold out” over and over again then you’d understand how long many have waited for the fine-dining chef to turn to burgers in a permanent capacity. Finally Craig and chef Regina Jose have ensured that no longer will we have to miss out on these uniquely Japanese style burgers. First Craig opened Bar Ume in Surry Hills a few months ago, and now the duo have given Barangaroo it’s first burger-centric opening with Ume Burger – trust the shiny new precinct to aim high with their obligatory burger joint....

Bar H team opens Banksii, a vermouth focused bar and bistro at Barangaroo (Sydney)

Botanicals in wines, botanicals in food, botanicals in cocktails – that’s just some of what you can expect from Banksii, Barangaroo’s newest resident from award-winning duo-sommelier duo Hamish Ingham and Rebecca Lines, best known as the masterminds behind treasured inner-city restaurant Bar H.

Review: Bel & Brio – Barangaroo (Sydney)

Now that The Streets of Barangaroo are beginning to take shape, the timing is right for the immense harbourside precinct to get its very own European style emporium. That would be Bel & Brio, a 5-in-1 venue which is now open in one of the area’s premier sites, offering a multitude of experiences, blending high quality farm-to-table dining and a comprehensive wine bar with takeaway, coffee and retail. By design, there are plenty of ways to approach the 800 square metre site, which has been fitted out by the exceedingly talented DS17 (Alpha, Lotus the Galeries) so that the brass-driven rose gold glow of the bar is almost impossible to ignore when walking around the area....
