Swine & Co, Wynyard

Swine & Co has taken over the old Bavarian Bier Café site on O’Connell Street, glamming things up with a more luxe fit out than its predecessor, although the structural bones of the restaurant have stayed the same. As befits its name, the focus of its menu is pork, pork and more pork in all shapes and forms.

Onyx Lounge, Newtown

Nestled right above Newtown station and just around the corner from Cuckoo Callay is Onyx Lounge, a relatively new bar/restaurant with an impressive drinks and food menu. The front entrance doesn’t reveal much other than just a door next to a concealed window behind some curtains, but once you head upstairs you’ll find a spacious dining area that is certainly unexpected from the entrance.

Rabbit Hole Bar and Dining, Sydney

SoCal, Neutral Bay

SoCal has been open for less than a year but is already a hit with Sydneysiders all over. Nestled just off the busy Military Rd, Neutral, they bring to the area a southern Californian surf vibe and theme featuring lots of bite-sized eats (perfect for sharing!) and cocktails too. They’re owned by the same guys who opened The Botanist and the last time I visited SoCal, I absolutely loved their food! This time I’m visiting on a Tuesday as part of a food bloggers social event and it’s near packed out – pretty impressive for a weeknight.
