A standout destination amid the counter-meal culture of a CBD back street, Temporada is the city sister of Ben Willis's fine-diner, Aubergine. The vibe is much more casual and flexible, but the lineage is clear in a knockout wine list that pushes boundaries, and a menu that drifts easily  between Europe, the Middle East and Asia without a hint of confusion.  The layout - seating around a central bar and tables along the wall  - and the diversity of eating options suits grazers, drinkers and serious  diners alike. Small, sharp eats include king prawns cooked over a wood fire, zucchini flowers stuffed with crab, and fine local olives, while deftly grilled wagyu rump with the crunch of charred baby cos and the parsley-and-garlic goodness of persillade typifies the larger offerings. Dessert is no poor cousin - there's class in roasted figs with a dusting of pistachio praline and ice-cream infused with the flavour of fig leaf.
