Bel Mondo, Rockpool, Colcetta, Meat & Wine Co. and Firefly

We’ve had some good eating and drinking experiences in the last two weeks.

Last week I had a work lunch that took place at Bel Mondo, a top-notch – with respect to food, service and view – mod Oz restaurant in The Rocks. I met the missus after this for a drink at Rockpool Bar; it’s just won TimeOut’s award for best bar in Sydney, and while it is impressive it’s a bit too fancy-shmancy for me to want to stay for more than a drink or two. Leaving here we went to Dolcetta, a tiny Potts Point Italian spot we’d enjoyed on our trip earlier in the year, and found it even tastier this time.

Friday was my workplace’s Christmas lunch (I know, I’ve only been there two weeks). We held it at The Meat & Wine Company in Darling Harbour. It was my first time in this chain. It’s a bit busy, but this location is certainly pretty cool. And the set menu included a 500g wagyū rump steak which was both delicious, fairly tender, and immense.

A couple of weeks ago we invited our neighbours around to meet us and have some drinks. One of the couples, RA, invited us out last night to a local Neutral Bay spot, Firefly. It’s also been given a nod in TimeOut’s bar guide for being the only decent cocktail bar in Neutral Bay. I had their version of the Trader Vic’s Mai Tai and found it very slurpable. We ordered more than we needed, but all the food was pretty good. The zucchini fries were tops.
