WE­can’t get enough of France and it’s re­flected in a restau­rant scene awash with new bistros and brasseries. Ananas Bar & Brasserie in Syd­ney’s his­toric The Rocks precinct is surely the most glam­orous of all, with its chic cock­tail lounge with large mar­ble-topped ta­ble sourced from an old the­atre pow­der room, oys­ter bar and restau­rant kit­ted out with lush fab­rics, over­sized chan­de­liers, etched mir­rors and Parisian flea-mar­ket finds. Or­der a pastis and feel as if you’re hav­ing a Mid­night

moment. The French flavour con­tin­ues in the menu. A whole roasted guinea fowl is brought to the ta­ble and then whisked away for carv­ing, a la Alain Du­casse, and a cute re­cur­ring pineap­ple mo­tif echoes the name. More: ananas.com.au.
