Poetica is a refined and light-filled restaurant and bar that we recommend booking yourself a spot at quick smart. The 120-seat space boasts a 700-bottle wine wall, dry-ageing cabinets and a 15-metre-long open kitchen. Stone, copper, wood and burnt honey upholstery contribute to the relaxed yet luxurious aesthetic. 

Head Chef Connor Hartley-Simpson's menu champions local produce as well as cooking methods that have stood the test of time - from pickling and fermenting to wood-fire and charcoal. You can expect to see dry-aged swordfish cooking over the fire before being caramelised on the hot grill whilst leek tops are charred in the Josper. As for the wine list, vintage gems and beloved classics make up the 450-strong offering. One for the bucket list! 

Sitchu Tip: Do not leave without sampling the wood-grilled Sugar Loaf Cabbage!

Loulou Bistro

Lavender Bay's French bistro has quickly become one of North Sydney's go-to's for fabulous French fare. Loulou is a bistro, boulangerie and traiteur. The dishes are recognisable French classics but with a lighter technique. Think crab soufflé omelet, hand-cut steak tartare with potato crisps, rotisserie chicken, pâté en croute and, of course, a glass or two of bubbles!

Sitchu Tip: If you're popping by for lunch, be sure to swing past Lou Lou's Boulangerie next door to stock up on fresh loaves and French treats.
