Had dinner at City Extra in Parramatta at 10.30pm last night. I know CE doesn't have the greatest reputation for food, but the atmosphere was quite good. It even started to fill up while i was there and was nearly full at 11pm. Other resturants on Church street were still open at this time as well so the street had quite a vibe.

Not had for a Sunday night.

MR. WONG OPENS FRIDAY 10 AUGUST

Layered with timeless colonial furnishings including timber floors with tiled inlay, bamboo framed French woven chairs and slow turning ceiling fans, Mr. Wong pays homage to classic Chinese influences in a contemporary style. The Cantonese-style menu features over 60 dishes including Chinese roasted duck, faux Shark Fin Soup and Abalone served Steamboat style, as well as an unrivalled dim sum selection.

Sprawled over two levels, the 240 seater Mr. Wong is one of the largest restaurants in the northern end of the Sydney CBD. It offers a range of dining options varying from private dining rooms and large group tables, through to intimate tables for two and seating at the open kitchen. Located within an easy walk of trains, buses and parking stations, it’s perfectly placed for a quick lunch time snack, pre and post theatre suppers, late night dining, large celebratory events and family get-togethers.

The menu is available for viewing at the link above.

Excitingly, Mr Wong's will be open 7 days and Thurs-Sat til 2am

Angel's new star ready to spice up central business district
Angel Place already has its quirky birdcage art installation and, from this week, the city laneway has a new restaurant to go with it. The co-owner of China Lane restaurant, Steve Anastasiou, wants to add to the lane's art theme, lodging a development application to project giant images on the blank wall opposite the new restaurant after being inspired by images of giant goldfish on a visit to Macau. Anastasiou says the Loop Creative interior deliberately restricts the Asian influence to a few accessories, in a venue where he describes the food as ''mod Oz meets Asian''. Chef Ben Haywood has produced an opening menu that includes pulled pork, steamed bao, sriracha mayonnaise and crispy shallots, and a dish of tomato fried rice with pickled mustard and green beans.''We went for a Mad Men, Blade Runner feel, with couches rather than banquettes to give it more personality,'' he says.

Diverse dining deals deliver more reasons to eat up
The Sydney Morning Herald's Appetite for Sydney campaign continues to list new offers around the city, giving diners a good reason to head out to eat and support their local restaurants.

Lochiel House, the regional restaurant of the year in the 2012 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide, has an irresistible Sunday special. ''Book a Chook'' is a roasted free-range chicken with bread sauce, Yorkshire puddings, vegetables and spuds, $100 for four with a glass of sparkling wine. Worth a trip to Kurrajong Heights.

Hugos Bar Pizza at Kings Cross and Hugos Manly have half-price pizza from 5pm, Tuesday to Thursday evenings - just mention Appetite for Sydney when booking.

At Love, Tilly Devine in Darlinghurst, it's $15 for a glass of KT Tinta by KT Tempranillo and a plate of Burrawong duck liver pate, Tuesday to Thursday.

Thursday is $10 wood-fired pizza and pasta night at Flame Gourmet, Bankstown, or choose from the $15 steak, ribs and chicken meals.

Two diners paying $44 a head for all-you-can-eat barbecued meats and sides get a pitcher of sangria at the Churrasco Brazilian BBQ restaurants at Woolloomooloo, Coogee and Caringbah, Monday to Friday, 6-8pm.

At King Street Wharf, Georges Mediterranean Bar and Grill has a Greek Feast banquet of taramosalata, squid, zucchini fritters, slow-roasted lamb and more, $45 a head for two, lunch and dinner daily.

To see the full list, or to add to it, see smh.com.au/appetite.

Open season once again in Sydney
You just can't keep a food city like Sydney down. After a couple of months of high-profile restaurant closures that shook the city, get ready for Sydney's now-standard dose of openings. Chef Luke Mangan continues to be spotted on Danks Street, Waterloo, firming rumours of an opening there this year, while John Fink and Lennox Hastie have been seen repeatedly touring a site in the born-again food precinct of East Sydney. Down at The Rocks, the empty restaurant space where Damien Pignolet was headed before deciding to join the Bellevue Hotel is back on the burner. The John Szangolies-owned site, next door to his Sake Restaurant at 12 Argyle Street, has signed a new chef, Jerome Lagarde, who worked at the three-starred Sens & Bund in Shanghai. It will open in September and be named Brasserie Ananas, after the French word for pineapple. Szangolies explains the name was inspired by a recent trip to France. ''Everywhere we went, pineapples kept popping up,'' he says. ''They were used in art, as the end of curtain rods … and it turns out the pineapple is the sign of good hospitality." Let's hope customers can remember the Ananas name. Think of bananas without the ''b''.

Restaurateur couple looks to American dream
Restaurateurs Peter Lew and Nicole Galloway have swooped on the recently closed Reno Sweeney's at 33 Bayswater Road. The duo will open Bayswater Diner in September, where Reno Sweeney's traded for just eight weeks before shutting this month. "We're in the final stages of signing the lease," says Lew. He notes the recent tragic violence at Kings Cross has had an effect on trade. "You can really tell there is a more sombre feel around the area in the last couple of weeks," says Lew, the co-owner with Galloway of Fei Jai in Potts Point and Barrio Chino on Bayswater Road. Bayswater Diner will be their take on an American diner. "Not the vinyl Peggy Sue thing - it'll have more of a 1920s feel and we'll serve diner classics as well as US-style barbecue dishes." They've found a North American chef, Quebec native Kevin Gosselin, to head the kitchen.

Food faith shown in the Cross
The rejuvenation of the former Kellett Street site of Pond restaurant, where chef Guillaume Brahimi made his name in Sydney, is another example of restaurateurs' food faith in Kings Cross. Byron Woolfrey, the former bar manager at Tetsuya's who managed Ms G's and the Fish Shop for Merivale, has opened Chez Dee in the old Pond site. He says Chez Dee is equal parts grocer, cafe and bar. He is one of several operators in Sydney to reference chef and restaurant owner Yotam Ottolenghi in London as inspiration. Chez Dee's chef, James Robert, was a major player in the kitchen at Omega restaurant in the city. ''We have had a lot of bad publicity [in the area] of late, and now look to turn the beautiful Kellett Street around,'' Woolfrey says.

Bouris brothers come up with a new Alibi
While high-profile businessman Mark Bouris made headlines last week, with jobs shed at the Bouris-chaired technology group TZ Limited, his sons Dane and Alex are creating them with a new restaurant in Darlinghurst. The Alibi Darlinghurst opened next door to Morgans Hotel at 304 Victoria Street, which a spokeswoman for the restaurant says the brothers also own. They've assembled some promising pedigree with head chefs Shimpei Hatanaka (formerly of Sake) and Adam Lane (who worked at Tetsuya's). Bartender Andrew Thomas is formerly of Merivale, while manager Will Smallbone's surname will be familiar to customers at the old Bayswater Brasserie, where his father, Robert, was an owner.

French chef Salet fits le bill at Pelicano
As far as restaurant names go, Le Pelican and Pelicano are simply too good a match to ignore. We're happy to report the two have come together. Jean-Francois Salet, chef and co-owner at the long-established Le Pelican in Surry Hills, has stepped in to run the kitchen at Double Bay's new Pelicano at 24 Bay Street, which has a roll call of owners including Tim Holmes a Court. An Asian menu didn't work at Pelicano, so they've drafted Salet to create light Mediterranean and French dishes. They are also pitched at women. A study last week revealed Double Bay's population is female-dominated. Salet's dishes will include items to go with drinks. One crab creation is matched with herbs and consomme and served in a tumbler. Salet remains in charge at Le Pelican, where the menu is unchanged.

Cooking school relocates
Waterloo's Patisse is on the move. The Paris-style patisserie and cooking school is relocating to 67-69 Regent Street, Chippendale, next month.

What really annoys me about this SMH "Appetite for Sydney" campaign is that they are actually putting more pressure on restauranteurs... Top restaurants already work on a pencil shaving of a profit margin, but now they are making the restaurants feel obliged to draw people through the doors with loss making specials just for the hope of being able to convince the people to sped more on extras to make some money - but the truth is, people who chase these specials are, 99% of the time, unlikely to spend more than the advertised special price. The result is, the overall monetary turnover of the restaurant increases, but with every new customer taking this special, their losses increase as well.

Aroma Festival

Did anyone else attend the Sydney Aroma Festival last weekend?

Huge crowds enjoying themselves; lots of good food and coffee, etc. Pretty much the whole of The Rocks was closed to road traffic and the streets filled with all sorts of stalls.

Great fun!

Shucked to Order at The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room
After an exciting redevelopment, The Morrison opens its doors with a revival of the oyster bar.
By Claire Story, 6th August 2012

A welcomed overhaul has transformed this large space on George Street into an authentic New York style brasserie. The spacious 250-seat venue spans three different spaces: the Oyster Room (taking centre stage on the front stoop), the Parlour (the bottom bar) and the Conservatory, an outdoor terrace, all with ultra-modern decor and an industrial feel.

Inside, exposed brick walls, polished concrete pillars, dark wood and dim lighting give the bar a cool ambience, while the multicoloured mosaic tables and lush indoor plants add a splash of colour to the urban interior. Outside, the Conservatory provides a open-air environment complete with an open fireplace and views onto Grosvenor Place.

Fresh produce and ingredients are the key to the venue’s modern Australian cuisine, with a strong emphasis on the popular, but somewhat forgotten, Oyster Bar. The Morrison offers up to five different freshly shucked oysters per day, including the Coffin Bay Angassi and the Port Stephens Rock, served with lemon, homemade tomato sauce with fresh horseradish and vinaigrette. Varieties differ from week to week and all are shucked to order.

Head chef Sean Connolly achieves complex flavours by cooking on the bone or in the shell, so try the southern style fried chicken lollipops and the heritage pork chop. Get a side of the thrice-cooked duck fat chips (like Heston does them), or for something lighter, try a crab and lettuce taco.

You’ll need a drink to wash it down and the bar offering here is extensive. Using unique flavours and ingredients, the innovative signature cocktails include the Sweet Rhubarb (rhubarb, agave and pomegranate grenadine), the tropical Castro (whiskey smoked pineapple and spiced rum, and the warming Winter Dust (tequila, hibiscus tea reduction and habanero shrub). But drink bubbles with your molluscs – it’ll make the slurping and sucking seem so much more sophisticated.

Restaurant review: The Century
August 7, 2012
Terry Durack

RATING: 15/20

I think we can stop saying Peruvian cuisine is going to be the next big thing, thank you very much. Four of the most important new openings in Sydney are Asian, from China Republic in World Square with its Beijing cuisine and Peking duck, to the dim sum-laden Mr Wong from Merivale, and China Lane in Angel Place, third in the China Doll/China Beach trilogy. It’s a timely focus, considering we are 12 years into the century in which China will be the dominating economic global force. So, welcome to the Chinese Century.

And welcome, too, to The Century, from the people who brought you the Golden Century, Sydney’s favourite Chinatown family banquetarium and late-night chef hangout since 1986.

The GC must have its nose out of joint just a little now the entrepreneurial Wong family – Eric and Linda, and sons Billy and Alex – are busy fussing over their new baby, recently arrived at the Star casino complex in Pyrmont. Billy is the restaurant’s director while Alex’s company, Paring Onions, is responsible for the design.

The attention to detail is impressive. A total of 82,320 chopsticks died to create the glossily ridged walls, and the hidden wine bar is backed by a wall of the same American oak used for wine barrels. The wall-mounted flat-screen televisions of the old GC might be missing, but colour and movement come from the 15 double-glazed fish tanks that separate the entrance from the main dining room.

As in Chinatown, the inhabitants play starring roles in the leather-bound menu, with its full colour photographs of Golden Century classics such as king crab two ways, braised lobster with ginger and shallot, abalone steamboat and garlic prawns.

Pippies, you say? Of course there are pippies. I don’t think I’ve ever been to the Golden Century and not ordered the pippies with XO chilli sauce (market price $58 a kilogram). It’s one of Sydney’s greatest dishes – just ask David Chang of Momofuku, for whom it’s a favourite order. A big oval platter carries a midden of the smooth, triangular shells, coated in a thick, dark sauce that soon soaks into the fried vermicelli cakes beneath. The XO sauce seems a little milder than it used to be, but the pippies are sensational – plump, juicy, rich and resilient.

Whole fish are brought from the tanks in a plastic bag for inspection before being whisked off to the kitchen, as Cantonese tradition dictates. A coral trout (market price $158 a kilogram) is too big for two, but a smaller, soft-fleshed parrot fish (market price $88 a kilogram) is another of Sydney’s great treats. Steamed in the traditional Cantonese manner, sauced with soy and ginger and topped with a thatch of shredded spring onions, then expertly filleted at the table, it’s simple, pure, un-tricky cooking that allows the fish to be hero.

But there’s more; much more. Cool, clean-tasting salmon sashimi ($22) is draped on a tangle of shredded carrot, served a little cold, perhaps. Crisp, sugary eggplant chunks ($7) come in a drizzle of savoury sauce. Snowy white rice congee with abalone and chicken ($28) is comfort food with a touch of luxury.

Tiny whitebait are flash-fried ($24) into crisp white wiggles of fishness. Roast duck ($32) from the gleaming stainless-steel kitchen’s upright duck oven is excellent, with its lacquered skin, livery-tasting meat, and good flesh-to-fat-to-bone ratio. Wok-fried baby bok choy cabbages with ginger and garlic ($28) have a good balance of softness and crispness.

An enormous wine list runs from an 1825 Chateau Lafite Rothschild for$98,800 – to go with your Peking duck, Mr High Roller? – through to 20 different vintages of Grange. A good mix of contemporary Australian labels includes a perfectly pleasant 2010 Mayhem & Co sauvignon blanc ($42) from the Adelaide Hills.

Instead of Golden Century’s famously pragmatic service style, staff here are trained-up and trying hard to please. Apart from the fact that it’s cold – the airconditioning is set on Arctic, and diners remain in their coats – it all makes for a classier, more comfortable Cantonese dining experience than any Chinatown can offer.

Greater minds than mine are grappling with how Australia should best engage with our major trading partner, but I do have one humble suggestion: let’s eat together. Forget about the mining issue and listen instead to what the Chinese have said for centuries: ‘‘If people are of one heart, even the yellow earth can become gold.’’

The Century appears to be in one hat territory. The Star has done sensational job with lining up a great array of restaurants and could be in with a shot at 4 x hatted restaurants when the 2013 Good Food Guide is released next month (Balla, Momofuku Seiobo, Sokyo, The Century).

Yes it is good news

I think opening times are influenced by the clientele and their behaviour. For instance, restaurants like Mr Wong's and The Century that offer supper later in the week do so because late night dining is more common in Chinese culture.

Chinatown, Koreatown and Thaitown have some restaurants that have late night options for the same reason. Fat Noodle at The Star opens late as well.

Here's a list from a few years back by Time Out Magazine that has a few other late night options;

Plus, it's not really part of the culture here. Even normal dinner time here is a good 1-3 hours earlier than most countries. When I moved here, I was a little confused when I would book dinner at a restaurant about 8:30-9, and the other people would tell me it was too late!
And people don't really seem to do supper after theatre/concerts here as much as they do overseas - would be great to see restaurants in close proximity to venues (such as China Lane) work on joint marketing plans to develop a supper culture.
The vast majority of people dining really late in Sydney are hospitality workers, migrants and people having a big drunk night out.
There has, however, been a gradual change to this culture over the last few years or so.


And yes, Star has done really well developing the restaurant selection. Momofuku will be at least 2 hats. Black by Ezard should get a higher score considering the calibre of it's chef. I think the whole sous vide steak thing got the reviewers a little off side, but in time, they should also rise through the ranks.

Yep of the restaurants to launch this year, I think Momofuku Seiobo, The Bridge Room and Sixpenny will be in the two hat range. Momofuku Seiobo may be promoted to three hats considering the demise of Bilsons. The Apollo, Neil Avenue, Chiswick, Xanthi, Balla, Sokyo in the one hat category, maybe also The Morrison, Mr Wong's and The Century if they are reviewed in time for the guide.

I think the idea of developing a supper culture in Sydney would be amazing, once George street is pedestrianised the city council should look at artistic and interesting lighting and promoting a more 24hour approach to eating (preferably alfresco style) so at least the heart of Sydney never sleeps! Loving the new food culture in Sydney already though, I try to support as many late opening restaurants as the budget allows!

I ate at both The Morrison and Mr Wong's on the weekend...
Like all Merivale openings, Mr Wong's was stylish and slick, and the food was absolutely delicious. I was there for lunch on Sunday, and it was packed. We were seated on the lower level not far away from an internal door that goes through to their new bar Palmer & Co - but thought it was a bit odd when they said that it doesn't open til 5pm when Mr Wong's is closed for lunch at 3. We weren't the only ones who wanted to slip in for a post-lunch drink!
Morrison was a good concept, and the food was great, but it definitely still has to find its groove. The service was inexperienced and scattered - definitely worth trying out again in a month or so!

Little Italy is great but I think it is becoming an outdated concept. Stanley Street was a Little Italy and has become anything but with now Thai and Sushi restaurants. The same can be said for Norton St, which I would say is the true Little Italy, but that places is struggling, especially The Forum and Norton St is also being diluted with other cuisines and I think Five Dock will follow the same fate.
