The July Hit List: Izgara, Viand, Khamsa, Shaffa, and More


Sydney’s new openings present two contrasting visions of Turkish cuisine: Izgara is a red-curtained grillhouse, compelling guests with the char and sizzle of steak and lamb, while Maydanoz’s menu is vegetable-led and guided by the Aegean coastline. Manon, a French brasserie, is a new addition to the Queen Victoria Building, brought to you by the Lola’s Level 1 team. Also just launched? A. P. Bakery. The bake shop finally has a stand-alone spot where you can get your roasted buckwheat pain au chocolat and bombolini flavoured with fromage blanc mousse and poached pears. Here’s your Hit List for July.
