Video: Sydney's Restaurant Hubert

Ahead of the 2017 Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards, we strolled down the sepia-lit stairwell at Restaurant Hubert to chat with the masterminds behind Sydney’s hottest new restaurant.

Restaurant Hubert is the first restaurant from Anton Forte and Jason Scott, the bar czars behind Sydney cult bars The Baxter Inn, Shady Pines Saloon and Frankie's. Their chief creative collaborator is Daniel Pepperell, the chef who made his name with playful, inventive takes on Italian cooking at Paddington's 10 William Street.

Hubert is up for two awards in our 2017 Restaurant Awards: Best New Restaurant and Best Wine List. Ahead of the awards on 17 August, we sat down for a few wines with Forte, Scott, Pepperell and the rest of their Rat Pack: co-owner Stefan Forte and sommelier Andy Tyson. From a corner table at Bar Pincer, we discussed the magic and mystery of the restaurant, what excites them most about being nominated and just how much French they really know (spoiler alert: not a lot).

Can't get to Restaurant Hubert? Try these seven recipes at home.

One thing, however, was very clear. The team at Restaurant Hubert don't just want you to enjoy great food and booze when you dine at the restaurant, they also want you to have an enormous amount of fun while doing it.

Catch the rest of our 2017 Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Award nominees here.
