Funky places to dine out in Sydney

The lockdowns of the pandemic are over (hopefully forever) and everyone is allowed out again.

While Sydney did lose some iconic eateries, new venues have sprung up to take their place. In 2022, there are a heap of new and exciting places to eat out in NSW. Have a look at some of our top picks:

The best restaurants in Sydney

Bert’s Bar and Brasserie: Head up to Sydney’s beautiful Northern beaches to enjoy some fine dining 1930s style at Bert’s Bar and Brasserie. Adjoining The Newport and overlooking the Pittwater, Bert’s offers a bar menu as well as fine dining in the restaurant.

Chef Jordan Troft specialises in seafood with his delicious European ocean menu. Poultry, beef, and pork aren’t ignored, with meats either roasted in the charcoal oven or over the Basque grills. Bert’s also boasts a world-class wine selection chosen by sommelier Franck Moreau MS.

Bert’s is not brand new but if you haven’t yet visited, we recommend checking it out.

Backyard at the Alex: Enjoy good food and good music in the backyard of the heritage-listed Alexandria Hotel. The Backyard at the Alex celebrates the great Aussie backyard with communal tables perfect for enjoying some live music with your mates. Sports fans are also welcome to come and cheer on the Sydney Swans on the big screen.

MuMu: MuMu is all about South-East Asian food, cocktails and late nights. Situated on George Street in the heart of Sydney, MuMu combines the exciting flavours of Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Expect to stay late, eat lots, and leave happy.

The Erko:
If you’re anywhere near Erskineville, you have to stop in at the Erko. The Erko has been serving up classic Aussie pub food for decades now making it an Erskinville institution. Whether your preferred brew is old school or new school, the Ersko will have a beer to suit you. Book a table for a delicious pub meal or just drop in with some mates for a perfect Saturday arvo.

Public House Petersham: For Sydneysiders in and around the inner west, you can’t go past the Public House at Petersham. Public House is a local favourite for a reason. If a huge beer garden, a chef who specialises in woodfired pizza, a selection of craft beers, and lots of entertainment don’t sound good to you then what does???

Smoke at Barangaroo: For a bit of a change why not party on a rooftop? Smoke is as close as you can get to the trendy rooftop venues of New York and LA. Eat, drink, party, enjoy the cocktails and admire the stars.

AALIA: AALIA is the very definition of mid-century cool. One of the newest venues on Martin Place, AALIA’s stylish, curving interior design coupled with the Middle Eastern nuances in their menu makes for a unique dining experience. Add a wide selection of fine wines to the mix and AALIA is something you can’t miss.

Circa Restaurant Bar: Seafood and rosé are always in style at Circa. The Double Bay restaurant takes inspiration from Japanese and South-East Asian cooking to create their unique cuisine. Circa is a perfect place to enjoy alfresco dining on the shimmering streets of Double Bay.

Fortuna: Italian food will never go out of style. For a taste of modern Italian cooking, grab a ride to Fortuna in Darlinghurst. You can enjoy breakfast or lunch every day and dinner Wednesday through Sunday. Enjoy a modern take on the classic Italian menu.
