This style of dining is becoming a rarity in an age when share plates and bistronomy are de rigueur. Restaurant Two has stood the test of time for 17 years, remaining quietly committed to fine dining in contemporary surrounds, devoid of pomp and ceremony. Service has finesse without being finicky, and menus skip trends in favour of tried-and-true flavours and classical techniques. Cod is served two ways - poached and salted in a smoky brandade, with onion sourdough, sweet fresh tomato and sour-tomato jam. Pan-fried duck breast comes atop silky celeriac purée, with roasted red beetroot, pickled golden beetroot, cherry and citrus jus. The dessert menu takes it up a notch with a syrupy lemon sponge cake, white chocolate mousse, freeze-dried blueberries and creamy yoghurt parfait. A $45 two-course menu brings in the suits by day, but after dark it's special-occasion territory, with a wine list to match all celebrations.
