Aria – Sydney, Australia

Aria – Sydney, Australia

Our first meal in Sydney at Aria came highly recommended from locals which is always a good sign. Located near Circular Quay, the restaurant has an award winning unobstructed view of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  The decor and overall atmosphere didn’t strike me as anything I would write home about but again, the view alone was enough to blow me away.

And the food…amazing!  Gorgeous in presentation, everything you could expect and more in flavor…divine!  I have absolutely no complaints except that I ate too much:)

Amuse Bouche – Pumpkin soup with Thai flavors (this deserves a spot on their permanent menu)

Tomato – salad of ricotta, cucumber, basil and Kalamata olives with a white balsamic jelly

Raviolo – of scampi and spanner crab with green beans, créme fraiche and a black truffle dressing

John Dory – seared fillet with garlic and parsley clams, braised carrots and artichokes

Soufflé – twice cooked soufflé of caramelized onion spinach with spiced eggplant and a tomato and saffron sauce

Salad of peach, mozzarella, rocket and balsamic

Steamed broccolini with hazelnuts and lemon oil

Mango soufflé with coconut ice cream
