The April Hit List: Aalia, Parlar, The Mayflower St Leonard, and More


The Sydney dining scene is being driven by some unique influences: Paul Farag is turning to ancient Middle Eastern books – some 1,000 years old – for his new restaurant, while José Saulog is remixing French and Spanish culinary ideas for his latest venture. Sarah O’Brien and Mejdi Grira are using bagels as a platform to help the community, while Bridget Raffal is redirecting the spotlight on female winemakers through her drinks list. April’s Hit List also features new offshoots and locations for old favourites – so whether you’re dining in or picking up some takeaway, there’s plenty to savour this month. Right this way.
