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. This comes nearly a year after the last Sydney heatmap. This 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 a restaurant that's been revitalized by a young and highly pedigreed new chef who is already winning awards (Daniel-Pepperell at 10 William Street), and a new casual Chinese/Malaysian restaurant from fine dining chef Chui Lee Luk of Claude's (Chow Bar and Eating House). On the boozy side of things, there's a brand-new wine bar with an award-winning list of more than 500 wines (Monopole), and a hot new cocktail den with a rock 'n roll vibe (Vasco). Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Sydney:
