Classico Moderno – Darlinghurst, Sydney

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Classico Moderno is an Italian pop-up restaurant currently located in Darlinghurst, set up by Italian chef Bryan Gerlini. You may know that name in connection with Darlinghurst’s most loved pop-up restaurant to date – Cafe Paci. Apparently he did a stint there! However, don’t expect the food to be anything like Cafe Paci’s. It’s an Italian restaurant and well, everything about it is very…Italian.

Acre Eatery – Camperdown, Sydney

Acre is supposed the new ‘Grounds of Alexandria’ but in Camperdown. Don’t get me wrong – I like the Grounds, but I hardly ever go because the parking is atrocious, it’s always ridiculously packed and you always have to queue. So while it’s nice when I’m there, the thought of braving all of the above often scares me away from the place. I was bracing myself for the same kind of thing at Acre but was pleasantly surprised!

Saturday in Melbourne – Top Paddock, Tipo 00, Shortstop Coffe & Donuts, Transformer

Our second full day in Melbourne was even more food-filled than the night before. Let me preface this by saying that all the food we ate was excellent, but we ate so much that it was sometimes difficult to enjoy every mouthful, especially when it felt like we just went from meal to meal…regardless, I wouldn’t have had it any other way, so here is our Saturday spent at Top Paddock, Tipo 00, Shortstop Coffee & Donuts and Transformer.
