Modern Australian in Newtown & the Inner West

Ester exemplifies Sydney's contemporary dining scene: informal but not sloppy; innovative without being overly gimmicky; hip, but never try-hard. The menu specialises in well-sourced Australian fish, molluscs and crustaceans prepared with a variety of global influences at play, but don't miss the blood-sausage sandwich either, or the excellent vegetarian creations. Desserts are well worth leaving room for too.
