11/33 BARANGAROO AVE, BARANGAROO 8072 7037; BANKSII.SYDNEY
Sit on the outdoor terrace, sip on a rosé vermouth and snack on crispy school prawns.When veteran husband-and-wife team Hamish Ingham and Rebecca Lines opened Banksii last year, they brought a new concept to the streets of Barangaroo. The ‘vermouth bar and bistro’ offers a menu focused on botanicals, from pepperberry mignonette on Sydney rock oysters to gnocchi with saltbush. Cheers to that.
