Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.
Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.
Missy French, Josephine Perry's new brasserie, brings more
than a touch of glam to Sydney's Potts Point. Join us for a soirée
of French-accented good times.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Or at least it doesn't in the case of the new generation of the Perry clan. At the ripe old age of 21, Josephine Perry, eldest daughter of Rockpool Group founder Neil Perry, has become a restaurateur in her own right.
La fille Perry's début, Missy French, brings a polished French-accented package to Sydney's Potts Point, and there's no skimping on the glamour. Grant Cheyne, a designer who has done no small amount of work for Perry père, has wrought a chic, contemporary look in shades of grey picked out in careful, elegant lighting. White-shirted staff glide between crisply clothed tables dispensing good drops from a French-Australian wine list put together by Rockpool Bar & Grill sommelier Richard Healy. In the kitchen, too, things are kept in the family, with Chris Benedet, a Rockpool chef, composing tight, full-flavoured plates.
For this month's Fine Dining Lovers' reader dinner, the Missy French team present a menu of French classics, including chicken liver parfait, suckling pig sausage with pomme purée and chocolate délice with banana and rum sorbet, all accompanied by Healy's wine matches. "Expect a great night with tasty food and delicious wine," says Perry the younger. "And hopefully lots of laughs."
Join us for dinner at 6.30pm on Monday 26 October at Missy French, 22 Rockwall Cres, Potts Point, NSW. The cost of $120 per person includes three courses, wines by the glass, Sanpellegrino water and a $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. To book, call (02) 8599 4912. For more on the OCRF, call 1300 OVARIAN or visit ocrf.com.au.
