I was pretty excited to be finally dining at what I consider to be an institution, Grossi Florentino. The upstairs, fine dining arm of the Guy Grossi empire.
I think it is safe to say that Rockpool on George is Neil Perry’s flagship restaurant. It had been on the list for a long time, and J and I finally got there on a weekend trip to Sydney.
Geoff Lindsay’s latest venture, Dandelion, in Elwood, has a surprisingly low percentage of Likes on Urbanspoon. At the time of writing, only 57% of people had clicked the thumbs up button.
