Contrabando, Wynyard

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Barrafina Tapas and when I heard that they were opening up a brand new Latin American restaurant next door called Contrabando, I just had to check it out. The team behind Barrafina Tapas has taken over the old Noble House Chinese restaurant site and revamped the basement location into something completely different – starting with the graffiti adorned hidden entrance, signposted only by the upside down Noble House sign on the street.

MoVida Special: MoVida Sydney, Surry Hills and MoVida Bar de Tapas y Vino, Melbourne

I am a massive fan of Spanish cuisine and have been waiting patiently to try the tapas at MoVida for months. I first tried my luck at booking a table at MoVida Sydney back when it first opened, but it seemed that the rest of Sydney had the same idea as me and it was practically booked out for months.

These wines are hand picked by some of Australia’s most well-known chefs to match with their signature cuisines and are only available through Wine Selectors and the chefs’ restaurants.

The Hudson, King Street Wharf

This restaurant is now closed.

A sleek new restaurant and bar has opened its doors at King Street Wharf and it goes by the name of The Hudson, serving up Modern European cuisine with a hint of molecular gastronomy. It’s clear that the decor is inspired by Manhattan, with the plush dark leather seats and eye-catching lights hanging vertically from the ceiling exuding an aura of luxury. The lights were dimmed when we arrived on a Friday night, adding to the glamorous ambience and accentuating the stunning view of Darling Harbour through its windows.
