et’s face it; we don’t always
get enough time to create
great tasting, healthy meals
at home every day. Even
for those of us that love
cooking, one of the biggest daily
hassles is deciding just what to cook.
What if there was a tool that could
help make planning, preparing and
cooking easier?

Under the guidance of Head
Chef Hu Yao, the influence
of his young team is evident
in the menu with Japanese,
Korean and Mediterranean
elements, and even French
pastry, weaving their way into
the dishes.
Seven Lanterns exudes elegant,
subtle style with a low-key
ambience and accommodating
staff. It is well suited to couples,
and the upper-level is great for
larger groups.
The food places a strong
emphasis on quality of produce
and plating. The beautifully
presented Atlantic salmon roll
is a delightful, smooth mix of
flavours. Hu Yao pork is a taste
sensation, the tender pork belly
harmonising perfectly with a
lemon, apple and honey sauce
that delivers a wonderful sweet
and sour flavour. The beef rib
hotpot is another standout –
tender meat in a mild, sweet
sauce, balanced by chilliinfused kimchi for a spicy kick.

David Lovett has a philosophy
of ‘keep it simple, less is
more’, preferring to allow the
ingredients to shine. David
travelled extensively around
Italy, and his travels and
experience are reflected in his
cooking style.
Overlooking the ivy pool,
Uccello is an unexpected
escape from the hustle and
bustle of George Street. Rustic
yet formal, Uccello has an
energised feel while still being
perfect for a romantic dinner.
The simple elegance of
Lovett’s cooking style is
evident in every dish. Entrees
include handmade gnocchi
with wild mushrooms or tender
fried calamari with zucchini,
finished with mint for a
refreshing edge. Moving on to
mains, the chargrilled tuna is
cooked to perfection, a topping
of salsa adding lightness to the
dish. Spring lamb shoulder is
a standout dish – tender meat
with a hint of sweetness.
PSST: Arrive early for a drink in one of the private poolside cabanas.
Joel Best knows the art of
cooking fresh seafood. He
worked in leading seafood
restaurants before opening his
own fish and chip shop with
a difference - alongside sushi
chef Hirofumi Fujita.
This seafood and sushi bar
has a funky décor with fresh
seafood on display. Seating
is limited, but being a stone’s
throw away from Bondi Beach,
takeaway is a fantastic option.
BB fans can now also book a
table at the newly opened Hall
Street venue.
