Modern Australian? Here, you'll find precision-grilled marron served with brown-butter emulsion and crunchy native succulents, pickled daikon concealing blue swimmer crabmeat, finger lime and eucalyptus granita, and kangaroo jerky and wattleseed bread prefacing dinner. Yet the kitchen is equally adept at the classics, from local duck breast to a brilliant crème caramel showcasing the restaurant's rooftop honey. While the name Wildflower chimes with Jed  Gerrard's Aussie-Aussie-Aussie thinking, nothing about the experience is untamed. The setting, a glass box crowning one of the flashiest hotels in the land, offers stirring daytime views of the city while service is equal parts friendly and finessed. The wine list maintains this Antipodean focus, with a smattering of splurge-worthy imports. Abstaining? Booze-free drinks (a "chardonnhay" made with grape juice and toasted hay, say) ensure teetotallers don't miss out.
