Pull up a stool at Stephen Hodgesâ€™ restaurant Fish Face, a regular Darlinghurst haunt that dishes up super-fresh seafood every night of the week.
Welcome to Fish Face, one of the best seafood restaurants ever to be crammed into such a tiny space. There are five high tables, a seven-seat sushi bar, window benches and three outside tables. Itâ€™s noisy, the kitchen is open and you may have to queue or settle for takeaway. But persevere because Stephen Hodges (ex-Pier) and Zachary Sykes (ex-Pier and Omega) serve seafood flown in from around he country and stored in specially designed no-air frridges. You can taste the difference in a salad of fennel, watercress and the sweetest, tenderest bugmeat.
