Contemporary American | Sydney CBD, Sydney / New South Wales

Good night, food was good. I like the way the menu was designed, some very thoughtful dishes. A couple of dishes were under seasoned. The 'Tuscan Black Cabbage Slaw' was a really boring dish, baby cavolo leaves with julienne of carrot and squeeze of lemon juice is pretty underwhelming, thought it would be more of a South Carolina style slaw. Crab Raviolo was a good dish, fennel nage was good, lacked a bit of seasoning, could have used some fennel tops to finish, crab lacked a bit of seasoning and citrus too but overall a nice dish. Cured ocean trout was a well put together dish, seasoned well and garnished well, could have been sliced a little thinner so it was a bit more 'fine bouche'. Will definitely be back, ambience was cool and super friendly service staff. Hopefully a few more french drops on the wine menu next time ! A plus ! More

Love the food , love the cocktails, love the service .It is a fantastic restaurant however I feel that having a two hour time frame distracts from the level of enjoyment particularly when you are spending that amount of money . More

The Lucky Cat Dumpling Bar
The Lucky Cat Dumpling Bar
Chinese | Coogee, Sydney / New South Wales

The Lucky Cat is the Eastern Suburbs’ best dumpling joint 20 meters from the beach packing with all the mouth-watering dumplings, buns, wraps and veggies. It’s run by DJ Ben Nott, one of owners of the legendary group of friends who started Spring St Social and Junction Club so the vibes are on point.

To wash down the fare here, you’ll find a sling of craft beers and cocktails like, gin tea and cherry blossom martinis, all backed by the smooth sounds of jazz, Funk & deep house. On the food side of things, you can pump your bellies full of BBQ pork, duck, lamb gyoza and red spicy prawns which basically translates to a big, fat and glorious food coma.More
