35 Barangaroo Ave, Barangaroo, 8587 5400, barangaroohouse. com. au With a recent menu makeover from new executive chef Tom Haynes, Barangaroo House is a crowd-pleasing venue with something for everyone across the three-level establishment.
At Bea, Australian produce cooked over the wood-fired grill shines. Share plates are fresh and light, like tender squid hood, nicely charred over the fire and glazed in a zingy chilli and ginger sauce. Whole fish and big cuts of meat stand out, such as the whole roast duck served with a fruity barbecue quince sauce.
Desserts are a bit of fun, with riffs on Aussie classics, including a malty Milo-inspired ice cream and an apple bombe Alaska that’s finished at the table. Chef Jason Staudt Price $$$ Open Lunch & dinner daily
