La Brasserie, Darlinghurst

There’s a French reality TV show filming in Sydney at the moment called “Les Anges de la Télé-réalité” (Angels of Reality) which rounds up previous winners of reality TV shows and places them in another country Big Brother style, with various challenges set to their career aspirations. One of the contestants in the current season is previous Top Chef winner Latifa Ichou, whose challenge was to serve up a 3-course French dinner at La Brasserie to a restaurant full of guests.

RivaReno Gelato, Darlinghurst

A brand new gelato bar has just opened in the heart of Darlinghurst! Introducing RivaReno which hails from Italy,  this established gelato chain has opened up its first branch outside of the mother country with its new Sydney store. RivaReno brings a taste of the land of gelato to our shores by serving up a premium range of creamy and fruity gelatos, along with sorbets, granitas and yoghurt. Unlike the open displays which are the norm at gelato stores throughout Sydney, RivaReno keeps their gelatos under wraps in steel containers to maintain optimum serving temperature and the result is a delectably soft gelato which stays true to its flavour.
