Everyone has a favourite restaurant and a go-to bar. They’re the types of places you’ll revisit again and again, and you always know you’re in for a good time. But Sydney’s busy hospitality scene is always welcoming new venues — and new spots vying to rank among your trusty faves. Despite the circumstances, 2021 has been well and truly delivering when it comes to all things boozy and delicious. The city is abuzz with new low-waste restaurants, revamped veterans, luxe eateries and inventive cocktail bars. Yes, the list goes on. Add these new Sydney haunts to your bucket list and make sure you head to any within your five-kilometre radius and support the chefs and restaurateurs brave enough to open during a pandemic.
