Paper Daisy

Is this the Northern Rivers or the Riviera? Pandanus-filtered ocean glimpses are a giveaway, but smartly attired and accented staff and the blue-andwhite designer décor fuel Côte d'Azur fantasies. Since Paper Daisy's opening, the menu has morphed to a fixed format, encouraging DIY mini dégustations. Openers like the smoked raw beef with a feisty tartare, thinly sliced dried watermelon, creamy egg yolk and radish exemplify the sharp execution and inventive dishes on offer. Lush bay lobster from nearby Chinderah is dialled up with curry leaf and paired with macadamia cream, while local pipis star in a lemon myrtle-scented riff on semolina pasta with native pepper. Desserts continue the precise, light but flavoursome approach with clean Nimbin Valley goat's milk ice-cream partnered with shards of parsnip, candied walnut and a sweet pear paste. There's plenty to toast in an upgraded drinks list, too, including a globetrotting by-the-glass offer.
