North Sydney is in for a real treat, as the brains behind Forrester's and The Butler have opened RAFI, a stunning 300-seat restaurant. Head inside this Mount Street location, where you'll be met with a gorgeous dining room made up of floor-to-ceiling windows, pastel features and marble mosaics. It gets even better, as this hotspot also offers a semi-alfresco glasshouse for those Insta-worthy moments and a gazebo-adorned terrace. Swoon.
On the food front, head chef Matias Cilloniz is whipping up a range of seasonal and sustainably sourced eats, which are cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavour. Our picks? If you're a seafood fan, chow down on the BBQ South Coast octopus. Or you can opt for the veggie-friendly crispy eggplant drizzled in organic honey. Thirsty? Explore the creative cocktail list, including a vodka-laced Fragola Fizz with yuzu sake, Aperol, strawberry and agave.
