The Bridge Room (Sydney)

This Aussie eatery is outfitted with one of the most multi-talented chefs. Chef Ross Lusted has an impeccable eye for design, and it’s not just the plating, but the plates themselves, that he maintains creative control over. The flavors of Europe, Asia, and the best seasonal ingredients are the creative inspiration for Lusted’s palate. With beautifully presented dishes such as sake-cured John Dory with smoked milk pudding, The Bridge Room is setting the new design standard of cuisine.
