The rebirth of Duxton Hill has created a new foodie street in Chinatown. New restaurants have opened in quaint shop houses and cool bars keep springing up in a neighborhood whose reputation used to be far from squeaky clean. It’s now a real pleasure to walk around Duxton Hill, down tree lined lanes where you will also find independent boutiques and quirky cafes. Despite being so popular, it really has a village feel to it, and makes a great place for a night out. Head up the hill to the end of the road, this area is cobbled and car-free. The restaurants here include an Italian trattoria, seafood specialist and French steakhouse, and have outdoor seating.
This attractive restaurant and cocktail bar draws you into to their wondrous world with a traditional exterior which takes over three shop houses and a quirky design inside. There’s plenty of comfortable bistro style seating around the open kitchen and the friendly face behind the bar is one of the city’s top mixologists who creates out of this world cocktails. The food is innovative, and to get the best of the chef’s creations try the tasting menu, which includes razor clams with purple garlic, venison and an interpretative dessert based on Terry’s Chocolate Orange.
