Bistro Guillaume Hits Sydney

After much anticipation from foodies in Sydney, Bistro Guillaume has opened in the heart of the CBD. Adding to Brahimi Guillaume’s successful Sydney restaurants, this will be the acclaimed French-born chef’s third bistro and fifth restaurant across Australia. The 120-seat restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner while the casual 20-seat bar area serves light lunches during the day and drinks at night, with Brahimi’s first ever patisserie as well. Indulge in classics like onion soup or twice-baked cheese soufflé or try a dish completely new to the menu like the lamb pithivier. Finish your meal off with a taste from the dessert trolley served tableside, you can’t go past the lemon tart or pistachio trifle.

Butcher and the Farmer Makes Glebe Home

The ethos of Butcher and the Farmer, a new 300-seat restaurant, bar and dining room, is to celebrate ingredients and produce sourced largely from farmers with a direct relationship to the venue. Chef Jared Ingersoll and head chef Simon Van Twillert have created a menu that will feature whole animals roasted over coal, a rotisserie, smoked meats and vegetables from their Southern Pride pit, a huge smoker imported from Texas, housemade charcuterie and cultured yoghurt. It’s all about good, honest food at Butcher and the Farmer, located within beautifully restored tramsheds in Glebe.

Popina: A Culinary Collaboration

Circular Quay is booming right now with the opening of many new eateries. Popina is one of these new additions at Gateway Sydney and it certainly won’t disappoint with its popular layout of restaurant and rooftop bar. The restaurant will span two levels facing the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and sees renowned Italian providores and restaurant group Salt Meats Cheese join forces with Middle Eastern mecca Shuk, to bring a totally new dining concept to Australia. Think decadent cocktails, handmade pastas, local and imported cheese served with fresh Israeli hummus and warm za’tar pita bread straight from the wood fire oven, perfect.

Osaka Trading Co. Opens With New Chef

The new modern Japanese restaurant, Osaka Trading Co., has excitedly appointed Shota Sato as head chef. Osaka Trading Co. at Tramsheds is an 80-seat Japanese restaurant with a seafood focus from the owner-operators of Tokyo Bird in Surry Hills. The brand new restaurant offers sophisticated Japanese cuisine alongside quality cocktails and drinks, and the friendly, knowledgeable service for which Tokyo Bird is well known. Sato’s view of Japanese cuisine is modern and innovative yet classic, using a mix of Japanese and Western techniques to showcase his style.
