Today, Eater returns to Sydney, Australia to focus on 10 exciting restaurants and bars heating up the city's dining scene that have opened in the past 12 months. As was the case last time around, Australia-based restaurant expert Sharlee Gibb — who also recently weighed in on the Eater Melbourne heatmap — returns to kindly share her picks for the hottest drinking and dining Sydney has to offer.
Among the map's offerings are new restaurants from chefs with some serious pedigrees, including a restaurant offering a seasonal set menu from former Marque chef Pasi Petanen (Cafe Paci) and a hotspot with an even hotter wood-fired oven from former Billy Kwong chef Mat Lindsay (Ester). Sydney has also been buzzing about a bar serving killer burgers (Mary's) and a newcomer that showcases the crafts of fermenting, curing, and smoking (Nomad). And, of course, there's the grand new location for chef Neil Perry's 25-year-old flagship restaurant (Rockpool). Here now, listed in alphabetical order, the Eater Heatmap to Sydney:
