Sepia, Sydney

Sepia is the best restaurant I've had the pleasure to eat in. It's one of the top restaurants in Australia and it boasts 3 Chef's Hats (from the Sydney Morning Herald). Sepia fuses French and Japanese techniques and influences.  Every dish was exceptional with the taste, texture as well as the memory of it lingering long after you've taken your last bite.  The dishes were elegantly presented making each truly a work of art. 
Do visit Sepia and make reservations months ahead. It's absolutely fantastic. 
The wait was worth it.
