Bentley Restaurant & Bar (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Bentley offers delicious, modern Australian food in a relaxed setting with one of the best wine lists in town (700+ bottle selections and 25 wines by the glass).

121BC (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Hidden in a backstreet in Surry Hills and a little bit difficult to find, this small, dark place brings Italy’s best to Sydney. Giorgio de Maria landed in Sydney in 2011, after sommelier stints in Italy, Ireland and Japan. He opened 121BC Cantina & Enoteca as an Italian...Read Full Story
