When you’re in the mood for something fancy, don your best attire and head to Bentley Restaurant and Bar. After seven years in Surry Hills, Nick Hildebrandt and Brent Savage moved their restaurant to the ground floor of the Radisson Blu Hotel in the CBD and got award-winning architect Pascale Gomes-McNabb to take care of the interior design. The menu features a full a-la-carte, tasting menu, and fine wines from around the world – the general theme is progressive, surprising and innovative. Diners are welcome to come in for dinner, a quick bite and a drink, or take advantage of the function room that seats up to 50 guests – enough space for all the vegetarians you know.
