It is, Susan! A real insider's view with eclectic & contemporary options for everyone who wants to get beyond Paddy's & Bondi Beach.

Interesting discussion on the ABC just now saying that outbound tourists report coming for the natural beauty & leave raving about our wonderful food, something they didn't expect.

I'm embarrassed to confess that there's heaps on that list that I've not done.
2014 might have to be the year to get to know my own city a little better!

I feel the same - I saw the list in something I linked to by chance yesterday - and I don't get out much (child-minding when not working). Still, I now have aspirations ...

Mr Wong (latest Merivale restaurant) is brilliant if you haven't been.

I was taken to Frankies by some young people, the pizza is amazing, but have to confess I could never find it again! This guide to small bars is also useful, it has the address of Frankies and Baxter Inn.

Cathie & Susan - we need to do a club crawl . Friends have been telling me about Baxters for a year or so - but said I'd need a blood hound to find it.

It's a great idea, I'm warning you though, I'm a very poor drinker these days. Two cocktails and I'll be completely gone.

Susan7, you lucky girl! If you would like a restaurant recommendation, we had a fantastic meal at Budakan (sp) which is more or less next door to The Chelsea Food market. You'll need to book. I don't know if you are a fan of Sex and the City but it's the restaurant where Carrie's wedding rehearsal dinner was held. The venue is spectacular as was the food. Modern Asian food.
