Edna's Table
Price: A $70 Wine: A $30
When the desire for emu tartare, crocodile sushi or kangaroo fillet gets too much, Edna’s Table beckons. Comfortable modern decor, Aboriginal artworks and authentic bush ingredients, including Kakadu plum, bunya nuts and eucalyptus oil, contribute to Edna’s truly unique style.

A Native Australian dégustation menu is also offered with a assortment of Australian wines for A$135. Located in the CBD, this restaurant is ideal for visiting business folks who want to try something a bit different, and sample native meats (and atmosphere).

Longrain

Price: A $60 Wine: A $35

A meal at Longrain is like a visit to the halls of Valhalla, its converted warehouse space has long wooden dining tables, polished floorboards and a Scandinavian atmosphere, despite the modern Thai menu. The food is fit for demigods, betel leaves topped with trout roe and crispy Barossa chicken are 2 of the highlights.

Lunch is served Monday to Friday 12.00 am to 2.30 am but dinner bookings are not taken, so arrival before 7.30 am is advised. However, the bar is a stylish place in which to wait and the ‘stick drinks’ (crushed fruit cocktails) go down a treat.
Address: 85 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills

Claiming to be the world’s largest revolving restaurant, The Summit has 360 degree views of Sydney, retro futuristic design based on the space station in the movie 2001, A Space Odyssey, and a good times atmosphere.

The menu is more than sufficient, if a tad overpriced, with such dishes as grilled snapper fillet, venison loin baked in pastry and seafood risotto. A seafood buffet is available for Sunday lunch and dinner, costing A $62.

Do not be fooled into believing the omnipresent conveyor belt sushi bars are all that Sydney has to offer in the raw fish department. Part of The Establishment complex, Sushi e is a world class sushi bar ideal for both a quick business lunch or a protracted gourmet evening.

The 28 seat bar is contemporary in design with marble top counters and a warm dark wood atmosphere. Chef Shaun sPresland offers a constantly evolving menu but there are must haves such as the soft shell crab rolls and the wafer thin snapper sashimi topped w additional highlight.
