Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Corner House

One of the only restaurants in Sydney (probably the only one actually) that encourages patrons to cut up their pizzas with scissors, The Corner House is a fun choice for a night out. Diners in the cosy front room nestle under a wall of wine bottles, and to reach the rear dining room, with its honey-coloured Chesterfield banquettes, you have to sneak through the kitchen – a quirk that owner Anthony Kaplan intended, to emulate a hip, devil-may-care New York ‘tude. Upstairs there’s an intimate cocktail bar with a balcony for balmy nights. Though famous for the DIY chopping of their wood-fired pizzas (go for the Crowded House – quattro staggioni style with quarters of salami, anchovies, sautéed mushrooms and buffalo, provolone and fontina cheeses), the kitchen also serves up more complex fare including pork belly or spatchcock. There’s a decent wine list written on brown paper and pegged to the table – try something from the ‘crowd-pleaser’ section, like the Delta Vineyard pinot noir from New Zealand.
