Now in its ninth year, the gorgeously loft-like Cumulus still has the quietly sophisticated X-factor it arrived with. Floods of natural light, striking flower arrangements and elegant timber furniture keep the room looking as fresh as the day it opened. The marble-topped kitchen pass makes a great perch for chef-watching, while comfortable bar seating offers a two-way perve with fellow diners and the parade of laneway traffic. The menu's versatility is its strength, and you'll be equally as happy doing the solo oysters-and-fizz thing as you will be sharing a shoulder of legendary lamb and seasonal sides with pals. European-influenced, the menu is geared for sharing, though you may need to plan your picks to get the mojo right. Tempura-style zucchini flowers stuffed with minced prawns and served with a tangy, Marie Rose-esque sauce are an inspired take on the '70s classic prawn cocktail. Service is polished, the wine list exemplary - and the buzz? Unbeatable.
