Nestled beside Sonoma and Miss Chu in the new Bondi Beach complex is Paper Planes. Under Head chef Jin Kung, the menu features modern Japanese dishes. The fit out is cool with the roof lined with skateboard decks and aluminium origami.
Holistic cafes are popping up everywhere around Sydney but The Grounds of Alexandria is the crème de la crème of this new trend.

A degustation-only menu at Sixpenny may be brave choice in these tough hospitality times but with chefs’ Dan Puskas and James Parry behind the venture, the boys will be sure to pull it off. Replacing Stanmore stalwart The Codfather, Sixpenny’s interior is simple, yet elegant, with wooden tabletops and warm-toned hues.
