Gowings Bar & Grill, Sydney CBD

It’s been a while since we last visited Gowings Bar & Grill, and since then they’ve been awarded a hat by the 2014 SMH Good Food Guide – not bad within their first year of business. Situated smack bang in the middle of the city, Gowings features dark and sleek interiors, exuding a cool vibe transporting me to Melbourne, or even the New York restaurant scene.

Jones the Grocer, Westfield Sydney

We’ve been Jones the Grocer a couple times now and each time their food has never failed to deliver (that heavenly sticky date pudding anyone?). In March they revamped and extended their menu – now featuring burgers and grilled mains along with more pasta, salad and dessert options. The menu even has a pizza teaser “Where’s the pizza? Coming soon!”, perfect for the upcoming winter weather.
