Wooloomooloo Steakhouse has been around since 2012 and gathered a steady and loyal following for its consistent quality. With the launch of their new Surf and Turf five-course brunch menu, this restaurant is one of the most scenic spots in town for a weekend meal. The warm wood interiors are classic and elegant, but it’s really the expansive views from their floor-to-ceiling windows that are the draw. Snag a table by the windows for max effect. Brunch courses include luxurious nibbles like the trio of oysters with ponzu, mignonette and chilli vinegar and the duck rillettes with cornichons and toasted rye. Mains include stalwarts like the USDA prime 6oz of beef ribeye, served with pomme aligot (whipped potatoes with cheese) and confit truss tomatoes and their hand chopped steak tartare, with chives, a dash of truffle aioli and fried rye bread. Everything is well executed and for $68++ per person, the five courses are more than filling. The menu will change regularly, but will always feature both meat and seafood dishes in keeping with the surf and turf theme.

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse is at Level 3, Swissotel The Stamford, 2 Stamford Road, 178882, tel: 6338 0261.
