Revel in Art Deco fantasy. Nestled within Merivale’s gleaming Newport showpiece, Bert’s Bar and Brasserie is Sydney’s latest jewel, evoking the grandeur and decadence of European dining rooms from eras past. Perfect at midsummer but impeccable all year round, executive chef Jordan Toft’s decidedly Parisian palette features hand-picked mud crab and an abundance of Australian oysters, with lobster, sea urchin and ox-heart tomatoes also sprinkling the menu, accompanied by 750 sommelier-picked wines to match. And what better place to enjoy it in than a panoramic, pastel-tinted Art Deco showroom overlooking Pittwater? Paris, by the sea.
