I am trying to pick a restaurant for a dinner (just 3 of us) for my 21st in September. We are thinking that we will do a degustation menu at a Sydney restaurant. At the moment, I am thinking Marque, Tetsuya's or Quay but I am open to other suggestions. While the food is of utmost importance, we will probably choose the matched wine pairing with the meal (where available) and so the quality of that is fairly important too. The price is not really an issue as we are looking to spend up to the $1000 for the 3 of us.
In terms of my tastes, I am open to most things. I am fascinated by different, seemingly odd flavour combinations and am not averse to El Bulli style molecular gastronomy (especially if it is done well).
Thanks in advance for your help.
