Located in an industrial-style space that was previously a parking lot, Ester is one of the best spots in Chippendale - a trendy neighborhood with tons of exciting spots to eat and drink. The food mainly comes out of the wood-fired oven (your family-style dishes will sometimes arrive with a dusting of charcoal), including things like burnt-butter prawns, whole chickens, cauliflower heads, and braised goat. But no matter what else you order, start your meal with the wood-fired oysters and a blood sausage sanga (that’s a sandwich).

For Chinese food in a grand setting, head to Mr. Wong. The two-levels are beautifully decorated and the whole menu is excellent.
A pasta bar that plays hip hop could go horribly wrong. Luckily, ACME gets it right. Head here for date night.
