Chef Bill Granger’s second breakfast joint—named, with typical Aussie matter-of-factness, Bills—is a morning pit stop for hungry locals, who come for the hearty portions and low-key vibe: the chalkboard menu changes daily and you’ll find piles of well-thumbed newspapers scattered around. Don’t leave Sydney without trying Granger’s spongy ricotta hotcakes topped with slices of fresh banana and sweet honeycomb butter.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Bruno Oteiza and Mikel Alonso, disciples of avant-garde Spanish chef Juan Mari Arzak, have divided their menu into two sections, traditional and "evolution." Both focus on Basque ingredients and techniques, used in varying degrees of orthodoxy or innovation. Prices are high—befitting the restaurant's location in an expensive shopping district—but the dining room has a relaxed atmosphere.

We loved: Raw salmon with "smoke paper" (made from potato flour) and red and black caviar.
