1 Cantonese standards such as charsiu pork and lemon chicken are elevated with exquisite produce at JADE TEMPLE (above), Rockpool Dining Group’s latest foray in Sydney’s CBD. Group culinary director Neil Perry oversaw the menu, while designer Grant Cheyne remade the Eleven Bridge space with red tables, plantation shutters and dramatic lights. 2 Make a beeline for SHUKAH in Melbourne’s Windsor for progressive and piquant Armenian fare. Think corn fritters with tahini, and lamb shoulder glazed with pomegranate. Even baklava gets a new guise under restaurateur Garen Maskal’s watchful eye; it’s served as a sundae with ice cream and salted caramel (above). 3 THE ISLAND in Surfers Paradise, a refurbed hotel with a sun-drenched rooftop bar, is the type of island you’d like to be stranded on. Its new Italian-inspired restaurant (above right) serves panzanella salad, linguini with prawns, and bistecca
fiorentina made from organic beef. Buonappetito!
