With the sun shining, the city’s charms are out in force as are new places to relax with friends and enjoy a drink and some food.
Los Vida Barangaroo
Authentic fresh Mexican food has arrived in Barangaroo with the opening of the newest Los Vida. There will be the range of taco’s but do not miss the Yucatan fish taco of grilled Barramundi, fresh ceviches and salads, the Ancient Grain Salad is a must. All this accompanied by drinks one would find in Mexico. See previous reviews of Los Vida Sydney and Los Vida Crows Nest here.

Head chef Fernando Sanchez dishes up favourites and a seafood share plate of grilled prawns, calamari, BBQ octopus and pan seared fish of the day. Have a bite with wine from the extensive list or an ale and watch the world sail past.

Flying Bear Café
Flying Bear Café is down on the waterfront at Sydney Flying Squadron offering coffee and bites. Those on the water will be able to come in and tie up their craft and pick up coffee, some lunch and maybe bubbles for when they droop anchor and watch the sun go down.

Kansas City Shuffle
Kansas City Shuffle comes to the city via Ben Sweeten (Joe Black Surry Hills) and Chef Kaye Papworth (Dr Morse Melboure) with twists on American diner-style favourites. Think fried chicken on a house-made donut bun with slaw, pickles, & jalapeno aioli, for one. When settling in for lunch, enjoy a wine to while away the afternoon.
