Table for 20
Part-dinner party, part-guerrilla dining, Tablefor20 is one of the most clandestine and intimate restaurants in Sydney. Set in a converted warehouse with lots of exposed brick walls and flickering candlelight, dining here is a chic, one-of-a-kind experience that evolved naturally from owner Michael Fantuz’s love of throwing dinner parties for his friends. The three-course set menu is wholesome, hearty Italian fare and while groups tend to book out the restaurant, which has one massive communal table, individual reservations are also common and the vibe is convivial and warm. The best part is you never know who you might sit next to, and unlike other restaurants, striking up a friendly conversation with the stranger sitting next to you is welcome. Either bring your own bottle or order from the menu, either way, the vino flows as freely as the chat. An eclectic and incredibly enjoyable community dining experience – don’t forget to head upstairs to Sticky for some cocktails, a fantastic, equally intimate bar also owned by Fantuz.
