Sixpenny: Restaurant review

An elegant and exceptional experience, housed in a discreet corner of Sydney's inner-west suburbs.

REVIEW

With no views to be gazed upon or open kitchen to observe, there's a laser focus on the food in front of you at this suburban fine-diner, discreetly housed in a quiet corner terrace in Stanmore. The night's menu is revealed course by course, opening with a round of snacks (a pecorino doughnut if you're lucky) before progressing through five savoury acts, then ending with two desserts and a final encore of petit fours. Highlights might include delicate, silken petals of Spencer Gulf squid, or the fragrant combination of red pepper and poorman's orange served with crisp-skinned coral trout. It's an intense experience and not one to waste on those who can't or won't appreciate the meticulous skill it takes to deliver food of this calibre. Enter Daniel Puskas, the chef-owner quietly yet masterfully driving this high-performance kitchen, which will mark its 10th anniversary in 2022. No doubt celebrations will be elegant, understated and exceptional, as is the Sixpenny way.
