Potts Point is thriving as a dining scene for an inner city suburb impacted by lockout laws, with cocktails at the forefront of most restaurants. Although, that’s not to say the food should be overlooked because it would be a crime to wander the streets of Potts Point without ducking into a small Italian hole-in-the-wall or settling into a buzzy neon-lit restaurant, serving the fluffiest, chewiest Jewish bagels with a bowl of hummus to mop up.

Licking your lips yet? We sure are. Here are the best restaurants in Potts Point to sink your teeth into.

At Ezra, the food reflects the diaspora of Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jewish favourites, including meze and flatbread, delicious dips from hummus to charred eggplant. Dishes are meant to be shared, but you might want to order two of the beef kibbeh with almond cream and sumac–one each. Other shareable plates include the whole roast cauliflower smothered in halloumi, Zaatar and honey. The set menu is $65 per person and a great way to sample most of the a la carte menu. Don’t forget to try a cocktail to kick off the night.

Cho Cho San

Get your Japanese fix at Cho Cho San, a casual eatery in Potts Point serving modern Izakaya in a Nordic dining room. The focus here is fun, good times surrounded by a lot of drinks and finely plated food. Think edamame dip, pork katsu in a steam bun, and chicken karaage. To share, opt for the crab fried rice, okonomiyaki and spicy sesame noodles. The next best thing about this eatery is the drinks. Expect yuzu spritz, peach tea sour, kombu old fashioned and Suika Gimlet with gin.

Bistrot 916

Chef Dan Pepperell brings his knack for French fare to this corner-side French Bistro. There’s nothing pretentious about it, though. Instead, it’s moody, a little cheesy with pink tablecloths and, most of the time, endearing. On the menu, expect anything from escargot bathed in butter to steak frites, and lamb brains. Don’t worry; it’s not all French. There’s a cheeseburger on the menu that has a cult following, and $1 oyster deals pop up on their Instagram every now and then.
