Lifestyle : Sydney, The Harbour City 2011
1HERSA1 0007 Chef Alessandro Pavoni's one hat restaurant Ormeggio at The Spit specialises in fine Contemporary Italian cuisine, with friendly and professional service and an absolute waterfront location . For the full unique experience try our 6 course degustation with matching wines, or for something lighter why not come for lunch? Lunch Special: Tuesday-Saturday 2 courses $49, 3 courses $59, including a glass of wine. D'Albora Marina The Spit, Mosman (on the left as you drive north to Manly) T: 02 9969 4088 | E: firstname.lastname@example.org www.ormeggio.com.au The Sydney Morning Herald Friday, October 7, 2011 7 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Purists will head for the roma tomato, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil-topped margherita, while the new world pizza innovation is represented by a topping of slow- roasted pork belly with sweet-and- sour onions and radicchio. Best outside table 4. Catalina, Rose Bay A table on the balcony at Catalina remains one of Sydney's deliciously unique spots to perch. Diners feast on a sweep of Sydney Harbour in full, hyperactive swing: ships pass in the distance and small sailboats dart between seaplanes taxi-ing through the bay. Catalina is in possession of a chef's hat in The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2011.Ifyou don't want a full meal there's also an outdoor bar. Quick and clever 5. Kenji, Circular Quay Opera Kitchen, tucked under the Opera House on the lower concourse, has some of Sydney's smartest quick eats. You can munch on (Becasse chef ) Justin North's Charlie & Co burgers or Miss Chu's clever Vietnamese rolls. If you want to seafood and eat it, pull up a stool and get a fix of Kenji Nishinakagawa's sushi and sashimi. The former chef at Koi in Woolwich does the standard nigiri sushi, nori- wrapped prawn tempura and a carpaccio of yellowfin tuna as pretty as the harbour. Mediterranean dreaming 6. Manly Pavilion, Manly With water views the equal of anything you might find on the Mediterranean, the food at this Manly restaurant is equally transporting. There's a strong Italian influence with snapper ravioli and a dish of pappardelle with wild-boar ragu, the menu taking a wider cruise of the Med with dishes such as shaved beetroot and yoghurt with a lather of pine-cone dressing. Waterfront cafe 7. Rose Bay Marina Kiosk, Rose Bay One of Sydney's premier seafood restaurants, Pier, resides upstairs, but this seemingly low-key kiosk provides a taste of harbourside eating at an affordable entry point. The fare might be mostly sandwiches and salads but the setting is Sydney A-grade. Any closer to the water and the marina kiosk's customers would need to be issued with lifejackets. Hilltop highlight 8. The Tea Room, Gunners' Barracks, Mosman As the town of Ravello in Italy peers over the Amalfi coast, Gunners' Barracks has a clear sight line to Sydney Harbour in all its glory. The prized front-row seats at this northside eatery offer more than just views. Gunners' Barracks is afternoon-tea central -- a $40-a-head indulgent investment in cakes, scones, finger sandwiches and tea or coffee. SPECIAL REPORT
