For­mer Fly­ing Fish chef Stephen Seck­old’s first solo ven­ture, Salary­man (a white-col­lar worker in Ja­pan), has landed in Surry Hills.

MEL­BOURNE

It’s no se­cret that Ja­panese cui­sine is hav­ing a mo­ment right now and this, the third restau­rant in the Sydney-based Toko group’s stable, de­liv­ers on its prom­ise of crack­ing sushi, sashimi and a swag of smoky treats given life over the ro­bata grill. Drop in early for a cock­tail, then grab chop­sticks and get busy. Toko, 42 Gre­ville St, Prahran; toko-mel­bourne.com

BRISBANE

Housed in a for­mer il­le­gal casino, bath­house and brothel, this Parisian steak­house with red leather ban­quettes and clas­sic French bistro ta­bles and chairs is the talk of the Queens­land cap­i­tal. Dive in for one of the best steak-frites down un­der (it’s all that’s on of­fer), then head down­stairs to the club for a night­cap. Les Bub­bles, 144 Wick­ham St, For­ti­tude Val­ley; les­bub­bles.com.au
