MISFITS in Sydney’s Redfern is a little like a Russian nesting doll – lots of layers. Obscured behind two nondescript doors is a casual bar, dining room and rooftop terrace, but there’s also a clandestine bar hidden behind a bookshelf. The retro environs contrast with modern dishes such as fried tofu and charred octopus (above).
Ice-cream-filled macarons and frozen s’mores are some of the temptations at GLACE, Christy Tania’s artisanal dessert store in Melbourne’s Windsor. The pastry prodigy has a taste for fusing the classical with the whimsical; the sunny space is inspired by The Beatles YellowSubmarine.
CRFT WINES in the Adelaide Hills, known for their small-batch, single-vineyard wines, has converted a 100-year-old shearing shed (above right) into a handsome new tasting room open on weekends. Candice Helbig and Frewin Ries offer a choice between a sample of their drops or a single varietal flight to highlight local terroir.
