Café

“A leisurely 15-minute walk through Kings Cross and you’ll come to the hip enclave of Darlinghurst, and perhaps to the restaurant and chef who started the brunch phenomena in Sydney, Bill Granger’s Bills restaurant. Brave the line-up and sample the famous Sweet Corn Fritters and/or Ricotta Hotcakes. It’s Modern Australian at its best.”

Bar

“Oxford Street is getting its groove back and we’d like to think we had a small part to play in it. Part-pub, part-restaurant, part-cocktail bar; each section of The Paddington has its own distinct style. Our kitchen is guided by executive chef Ben Greeno, who had the genius idea to install custom-made rotisseries. What does this mean for you? Juicy, brown and sticky-skinned Bannockburn chickens that are hormone-free and air-chilled. You’ll never look at a humble roast chicken the same again. But we’re not just about chicken; we cook the finest rotisserie meats, fish and vegetables, as well as lighter shared meals. Our late-night menu kicks in at 10:30pm and it’s definitely worth sticking around for.”
