FIREFLY

Cuisine: Tapas

The western side of the Harbour Bridge is not so famed for tables with views but this restaurant challenges that. Its excellent position on the pier pairs well with tapas-style cuisine and the expectation, possibly, of theatre to follow. The deluxe banquet ($44 per person, four or more) is the way to go, giving you eight samplers including lamb and pork meatballs $15 and tasty little goat’s cheese tarts $15 with fig, honey and hazelnuts. Or set your own menu to include succulent six-hour beef bourguignon $21 and a dessert of raspberry and chocolate mille feuille $15. The design is cool and contemporary, with a glass outer fence and stainless-steel chairs and divides. Boutique wines by the glass change daily, keeping them fresh and giving you the chance to try more on each visit.

SOPRA

Cuisine: Tapas,Italian

The Fratelli Fresh empire has spread its seed around Sydney now, with sibling grocer-slash-cafes in Waterloo, Potts Point and Walsh Bay. Each has a trademark feel of rustic industrial cool combined with simple, homestyle Mediterranean food. The vision of brothers Barry and Jamie McDonald to make plucked-from-the-garden-fresh ingredients the main event on the menu can be seen in everything, from crisp polenta with gorgonzola and oyster mushrooms $18 to fettuccine and veal-mince meatballs $22. Dishes rarely stand still on the blackboard menu. Pray you find the entree of zucchini flowers stuffed with five cheeses, $4.95 each, or whole baked trout rolled in mint and marjoram $26. Dark chocolate torte with poached pear and passionfruit $14.50 deserves a standing ovation. Arrive at around 6pm if you intend to make it to an 8pm show.
