Hg2 : The Hedonist


Fico is a place to woo that special someone, toasting one another with a fabulous glass of red in a cosy nook in one of the most intimate bars in Sydney. The focus here is on wine and the staff is approachable, with knowledgeable sommeliers able to recommend from a carefully-crafted selection of 36 Australian and Italian wines. Most are sold by the glass, and each pack a punch when paired with Fico’s thoughtful bar menu. Try the salsiccette romane grigliate (grilled pork and fennel sausages) with a savoury nero d’avola, for example. Snacky plates of antipasti like proscuitto, grissini and tender baby calamari rings should sate a grumbling tum, while penny-pinchers should get there between 6pm-7pm when Fico serves aperitivo (just like in Italy), allowing you to nibble at complimentary antipasti with every glass of wine. Bellisimo!
