Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

Sean’s Panaroma
A chic beachside restaurant, Sean’s Panaroma is market-driven, with a seasonal menu and al fresco seating.
Saint Peter
Saint Peter in Paddington is a restaurant that specialises in serving the very best Australian fish and seafood, treating it simply, creatively and with respect.
Automata
A stylish restaurant in Chippendale, Automata – helmed by Head Chef Clayton Wells – offers a set seasonal menu that draws diners from around Sydney.
Billy Kwong
Found in Elizabeth Bay, Billy Kwong – from chef Kylie Kwong – specialises in Australian-Chinese food that’s as sensational as it is seasonal.
Bodega
The Corner House
The only place in Sydney where you can hack at a pizza with scissors - a curiously gratifying experience, trust us - this relaxed Bondi ristorante attracts a steady stream of hip residents.
Spice Temple
Owned by Australian celebrity chef Neil Perry, this slinky, Asian restaurant is a glamorous hotspot and its dimly-lit, scarlet-coloured dining room is the high
Manta
Manta is one of the swankier spots in Sydney to sit on the waterfront, slurping down freshly-shucked oysters and looking suitably smug.
Icebergs
Where the beautiful people come to wine, dine and be seen doing both, Icebergs is one of Sydney's most stylish hangouts.
Cut Bar & Grill
Steak has never been so hip. With its moody lighting, butcher's block chopping board tables and meat cleavers instead of handles on the bathroom doors, Sydney's newest steakhouse oozes cool.
Flying Fish
Easily one of the slickest seafood joints in the city, diners get an eyeful of passenger cruisers, yachts and ferries gliding past at this stunning, two-storey harbourside loft restaurant.
Sake
Those mad about Japanese are in for a treat at Sake, where culinary superstar Shaun Presland whips up a storm in the kitchen.
Sushi e
Sushi-e was one of the first Sydney restaurants to jump on the Nobu bandwagon, and has wooed the city's glossy-maned, Manolo-wearing socialites and city bankers
LL Wine Dine
Once an illegal casino in the 1960s, then a swingers' club and even an adult bookshop named Ecstasy, this buzzy, Hong Kong-style eats 'n' drinks den sits in a pedestrian-only laneway in Sydney's former seedy red light district.
China Doll
Power lunch at China Doll, where you'll rub sharp-suited shoulders with fellow hedge-funders and corporate types; as you'd expect, the Asian menu is to-dine-for.
