RESTAURANTS & BARS Icebergs Dining Room and Bar 1 Notts Avenue Bondi NSW 2026 Tel: 61 2 9365 9000 Fax: 61 2 9365 9099 Contact: Maurice Terzini Mobile: 0411 881 122 Email: Maurice_terzini@idrb.com or firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.idrb.com Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is situated in one of the most beautiful and awe- inspiring locations in the world - Bondi Beach. The panoramic views, ultra cool interiors and a menu based around a modern Mediterranean theme with a strong emphasis on seafood have kept this restaurant on the hot list since it‟s opening in December 2002. North Bondi Italian Food (NEW) 118-120 Ramsgate Av North Bondi 2026 NSW Phone: (02) 9300 4400 Chef: Robert Marchetti Contact: Maurice Terzini Mobile: 0411 881 122 Email: Maurice_terzini@idrb.com or email@example.com Website: www.idrb.com The simple name really says it all - Italian fare served above an iconic stretch of coast. North Bondi Italian Food doesn't try to be anything more than that, but with Maurice Terzini as one of the owners and the uber-sophisticated Icebergs Dining Room as its sibling, this new eatery can't help but create a stir. The former Moorish site has had a makeover, shifting the long bar over to the side of the room and filling the space with bright yellow chairs and simple unclothed tables, while enormous pleated lampshades hang above diners like '50s rock'n'roll skirts. Features such as recessed trays built into tables to store the cutlery reinforce the family-friendly, beachy attitude. Chef Robert Marchetti's menu is similarly simple and laidback. Share-style plates might display a rustic selection of Italian meats or cheeses, baccala (salted cod) balls or calamari. The intention is to create an alternative to the increasingly upmarket restaurants of Bondi, however this attempt at casualness is unlikely to stop Bondi's sparkling social set from sweeping in with expectations as high as their stiletto heels. Though it may be casual, with a pedigree like this, diners are not likely to be disappointed. SoBo (NEW) 70a Campbell Pde Bondi Beach 2026 NSW Phone: (02) 9300 8898 SoBo (the name twisting the South Bondi location with a bit of New York style) has stepped up to the plate. Designer Paul Kelly has created a restaurant that would be right at home in Manhattan - if only that iconic city had a beach like Bondi's. The resulting space features deep banquettes, Parisian-style chairs and striking burnt orange lights, combining city sophistication with cheeky beach-chic style. In the kitchen, SoBo boasts European import Xavier Mouche, whose Australian experience includes time at Bathers' Pavilion and Bennelong. Mouche's menu combines classic techniques and fresh modern tastes to create dishes such as an earthy quail and mushroom pithivier with grape jus, or escalope of salmon with a slightly acidic Champagne and sorrel sauce. To match this feast of European cuisine, there is a list of innovative cocktails and an extensive range of international boutique wines. Blue Orange 49 Hall Street, Bondi Beach Tel: 9300 9885 Contact: Shane Any cafe which uses the preferred sydneycafes website colours of blue and orange is off to a good start in our books - it's like, yep, they got the Sydney pantone there - orange signifying the sand and sun, blue the water and sky. But, who cares, we hear you cry. And you're right - far better we talk about the food. Far, far better, in fact, as the food is exquisite. Outrageously unknown chef Shane Lurie has owned Blue Orange Cafe (with business partner Tasia Doukakis) for only five months, but he's gaining fans fast. His life so far, cheffing in award-winning restaurants in Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, the UK, Ireland, and even Israel and Egypt has imbued him with a worldly instinct for eclectic fusions of flavours which, while subtle in themselves, gradually seduce the senses with sublime force. The Crispy Skin Salmon, for example, relaxes ona prawn & saffron risotto touched with baby fennel, sauce vierge and French salsa (which itself is an immaculate blend of coriander seeds, fresh basil, white balsamic olive oil and salt & pepper). It's probably the best risotto we've ever tasted! And the softest smoothest salmon- flesh around shows that Sean’s Panaroma 270 Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach Contact: Sean Ph: 9365 4924 Soak up the beach activity while having lunch at Sean's Panaroma A quirky beach cafe, half up-market restaurant - Sean's epitomizes Bondi's studied cool. People certainly love spending their weekends here soaking up fresh juices and the best brunch in town. The flavours are clean and well balanced - a simple thing, so rarely done well. Simplicity and whimsy can be a winning combination, especially when teamed with a body-surfer view of Bondi beach. Sean Moran's passion for minimal chef intervention and prime seasonal produce shines from the swinging blackboard dish lists. Fishmongers (NEW) 42 Hall Street, Bondi Tel: 93652205 Contact: Clair Statham Of course, if you're going to batter a fish then you want to get it right. Thus when the news comes that Fishmongers, Byron Bay's chippie du jour, had opened an offshoot in Bondi off we go.Fennell and chilli salmon, from the specials board, is cooked to soft perfection and arrives perched (fish pun intended) on a mound of salad containing the seemingly ubiquitous kumara, a scattering of mungbeans and the occasional slice of ginger to add a frisson to the proceedings. The salad option - it also comes with chips or tempura vegetables - includes a sliver of corn on the cob and a little plastic container of home-made pesto, which compliments everything beautifully.

The painted art deco walls are as milky as they are curvy, with the motif furthering its classic style with marble floors, vintage wood panels, dark chocolate banquettes and brass trim. Russo (ex-Aqua Luna and L'Unico) says the space reminds him of the rich architecture of 1940s Italy, even as his food is firmly footed in the present - the chef likens it to a combination of the full flavours of the south with the excellent presentation of the north.

Italofiles will love all the native touches, from the imported tableware and accoutrements to the use of Italian oils, Sicilian sea salt and the extensive Italian wine list. The menu is both simple and stimulating. Case in point: the signature squid ink tortellini, which uses ink so fresh it colours the made-to-order pasta a deep midnight black, then gives way to a subtly textured crab and mascarpone filling and a slow-cooked tomato sauce. For those in the mood for a casual affair, cross the hall to the cocktail bar, consider the generous grappa selection, and grab a plate of bite-sized arancini or any of the other well-crafted nibblies.
