RES­TAU­RANT ORANA

Jock Zon­frillo wants to “demon­strate the value of na­tive in­gre­di­ents and how de­li­cious they are”. Dé­gus­ta­tions of up to 20 cour­ses at his 31-seat din­ing room (restau­ran­torana.com) shouldn’t be missed.

OS­TE­RIA OGGI

This con­tem­po­rary Ital­ian es­tab­lish­ment (os­te­riaoggi.com.au) serves ar­guably the best house­made pasta south of Italy. The dé­cor isn’t too shabby, either – this year the fit-out won the World In­te­ri­ors News award for best res­tau­rant in­te­rior.

BOTANIC GAR­DENS RES­TAU­RANT

With his diner’s unique lo­ca­tion in Ade­laide Botanic Gar­den (botan­ic­gar­den­srestau­rant. com.au), chef Paul Baker has a vast and var­ied kitchen gar­den at his fin­ger­tips. His goal? “To cham­pion the [botanic] gar­den and show­case Ade­laide and South Aus­tralian pro­duc­ers.”

THE POT BY EMMA McCASKILL

The first eatery (the­p­ot­foodand­wine.com.au) in Si­mon Kar­dachi’s res­tau­rant em­pire has just re­ceived a mod­ern up­date, cour­tesy of chef Emma McCaskill, for­merly of Pen­folds’ Mag­ill Es­tate Res­tau­rant.

THE MAR­KET SHED ON HOL­LAND

This Sun­day mar­ket (1 Hol­land Street; 0411 201 760) has a com­mu­nity fo­cus, a laid-back vibe and a di­verse range of food pur­vey­ors. The vegie burg­ers are al­ways pop­u­lar and one of the stalls serves lo­cal wine by the glass or bot­tle. This is Sun­day done right.

WHIS­TLE & FLUTE

This savvy café and liquor-bar hybrid (whis­tle and­flute.com.au) has a ca­sual menu burst­ing with Mid­dle East­ern, Mediter­ranean and Asian flavours. It’s the per­fect Satur­day brunch.

AFRICOLA

Dun­can Wel­ge­moed’s new North Africanin­spired menu (africola.com.au) features more ve­g­ies and fish than his pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tion and sets a new bench­mark for de­li­cious­ness.

SHŌBŌSHO

Adam Lis­ton up­rooted from Mel­bourne to helm this Kar­dachi-owned Asian bar­be­cue house (sho­bosho.com.au) where the ever-evolv­ing menu is packed with Ja­panese-in­spired flavour bombs. Eas­ily the best open­ing of the year.

THE TAST­ING ROOM

Vino is one of the bedrocks of this town and the ul­ti­mate haunt is The Tast­ing Room at East End Cel­lars (eas­t­end­cel­lars.com.au). Other great places in­clude cock­tail den Al­fred’s Bar (al­freds­bar.com.au) and Five O’Clock Some­where (fiveo­clock­some­where.com.au). Still hun­gry? Fol­low the cool kids to Sunny’s (sun­nys.pizza) for pizza and danc­ing. En­joy global flavours at Peel St (peelst.com.au). Tuck into burg­ers at Bread & Bone Wood Grill (breadand­bone.com. au). Have a late-night feast at The Pro­pa­ganda Club (the­p­ro­pa­gan­da­club.com.au). Try Afghan dishes at Par­wana (par­wana.com.au). And get your caf­feine fix at Crack Kitchen (crack­kitchen. com.au) or Mon­day’s (mon­days.cof­fee).
