Going to Australia on my honeymoon in September for three week and was hoping to get some restaurant recommendations. We're going to be in Sydney, Port Douglas, Tasmania (Hobart/Starahan), Melbourne, and the great ocean road.
I definitely want to do at lease one nice meal in each city and these restaurants seem easy to find and read reviews about. Pier in Sydney, Lebrina in Hobart, The Press Club in Melbourne, etc...
What I am having trouble finding are casual/hip places like we have, where I live, in New York. Places like, David Chang's restaurants (Momofuku Ssam Bar), The Spotted Pig, and Casa Mono. We are very into asian, gastro pubs, places that make great offal, tapas, seafood (I hear it is great all over australia), street meat and at least one bushtucker place. Refined is good, but I couldn't eat like this night after night.
We will be staying in the center of each of these cities.
Any help with with recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
