A round-up of the latest new additions to the Potts Point dining scene.

1/28 Macleay St, Potts Point NSW 2011

It’s been a year since Kylie Kwong closed the chapter on Billy Kwong, now a new restaurant has finally filled the hallowed Macleay Street dwelling. Diana is a Korean-Chinese led by regional restauranteur Sammy Jeon, who owns a number of restaurants in central-west NSW.

7 Kellett St, Potts Point NSW 2011
Deans lounge has taken up residency at the old, beloved Dean’s Cafe, which ruled over Kings Cross between 1976 and 2011. Dean’s is serving up late-night boozy food that is genuinely delicious. Think nachos, oozing jaffles, and dessert classics like cheesecake, sticky date pudding and chocolate cake.

Bistro 916
22 Challis Ave, Elizabeth Bay NSW 2011

Dan Pepperell’s (Restaurant Hubert, 10 William St) latest Potts Point venture is an ode to French dining. Dubbed “neo-bistro”, Bistro 916 is serving up reimagined French staples. It’s decadent gluttony: spring-roll inspired boudin noir, duck frites, steak au poivre, escargot, chicken-liver parfait. Perhaps don’t bring along the vegetarians in your life.

Elm Rooftop
Level 2, 122 Flinders St
Darlinghurst NSW 2010

A new rooftop bar has opened up on top of Darlinghurst institution The Taphouse. It’s luscious, leafy and leaning into the 1920s. It’s the perfect vibe to dwindle away a sunny afternoon. Grab yourself a charcuterie and cheese board, or a few tacos and indulge in their extensive range of craft beers and cocktails.
