Attica has long been a standard-bearer for Australian dining and following an extensive makeover, the pride of Ripponlea has signalled it's ready to take its place among the world's great contemporary restaurants. There's now a more relaxed, yet still special-occasion-ready environment starring Featherston chairs and fun soundtrack choices - though changes beyond the cosmetic. Restaurant manager Kevin McSteen and sommelier Jane Lopes, both late of New York's Eleven Madison Park, have brought new vigour to already formidable service and drinks packages. And Ben Shewry's deeply personal, technically brilliant cooking continues to live up to the international hype. From Australia's flashiest avocado toast and the history of Ripponlea distilled into three brilliant tarts to the elegance of a delicate chicken consommé flavoured with local herbs, Attica proves there's still life - and wit - in the (extended) tasting menu format.
