Part of Andrew McConnell's empire, this is the younger, buzzier, carefree sibling to the grown-up Cumulus Inc further up Flinders Lane. Prop at Supernormal's bar, with a bird's-eye view of the open kitchen, or in the Tokyo-meets-Stockholm-style restaurant proper, and you've scored one of the hottest seats in town. If you're a newcomer to this venue's pan-Asian menu, the destination dishes are the cult lobster roll (a two-bite brioche of lobster tail, cress, spring onion and mustardy mayo), the gingery sea bream fillet with thin daikon and umami nori punch, and the as-good-as-it-sounds peanut butter parfait with salted caramel and soft chocolate. Been before? Skip to just-shucked Moonlight Flat oysters or try koji-marinated chicken decorated with bonito flakes that wave in the steam. Or chicken and prawn dumplings soused in chilli and vinegar. Service is rock solid, the wine list rules, and they do takeaway, too.
