Food trends and restau­rant news.

1 South Bris­bane’s CHU THE PHAT (above) might draw culi­nary in­spi­ra­tion from the hawker stalls of Hong Kong, Korea and Tai­wan, but its sprawl­ing, split-level de­sign evokes an elab­o­rate din­ing hall in New York. The ca­sual sib­ling to Madame Wu has a menu that runs from snacks like trout frit­ters and pig tails to smoked and fried duck with chilli sauce. 2 Sal­vaged tim­ber, swirling mar­ble and stained glass have been har­nessed with ex­quis­ite ef­fect at Syd­ney’s THE GROUNDS OF THE CITY (above), a lav­ish spin-off to the beloved Alexan­dria cafe. With grilled lob­ster, grain-fed ten­der­loin, and af­fogato, it’s a mag­net for the Zegna crowd. There’s even a cof­fee som­me­lier. 3 Wil­son & Mar­ket, Paul Wil­son’s brasserie at Prahran Mar­ket in Mel­bourne, show­cases bio­dy­namic vegeta­bles, sus­tain­able seafood and eth­i­cally reared meats. De­sign­ers Kestie Lane Stu­dio melded the farm-to-ta­ble con­cept with so­phis­ti­cated fur­nish­ings. The 250-seater (above, right) is open from break­fast to din­ner five days a week.
