Tutti A Tavola – ‘everyone to the [La Scala on Jersey] table’

La Scala takes a clever step back @lascalaonjersey @massimomele007 @anna_lisle

Perched above Paddington’s iconic Light Brigade Hotel and beside hot new experimental restaurant Pinbone, the revamped La Scala has taken a step back, offering casual, neighbourhood dining in humble surrounds. At first glance, the restaurant isn’t radically different; only subtle changes like the removal of tablecloths and the addition of timber fixtures.

Niji Restaurant and Bar impresses Double Bay locals

Double Bay has had a new lease of life with the opening of exciting new restaurants in Bay Street. Knox Street has been where everyone has headed to for a coffee, brunch or a late night dinner with  Dee Bees, Cafe 21 and The Cosmopolitan dominating the Double Bay restaurant scene for many years.  And then overnight, Bay Street seems to be where it’s all happening with Mrs. Sippy, Royal Oak Bistro…
