Hello from “sunny” Arizona, USA,

We’ll likely be doing our first trip to OZ in November, 2010 for a business meeting. As it appears, we’ll be staying at the Hilton Sydney, 488 George St., in Sydney. There will be meetings for most days, but we will be free for dinners on about four evenings.

We will not have an auto, so either a taxi, walking or public transportation would be required. We both love higher-end, fine-dining, and are both avowed winos - a good reason to NOT hire an auto for the trip.

We are looking for about 3 - 4 evenings of dining recs., and are open to all cuisines. Price is not really an object, but great food and service are, especially with a really well-thought-out wine list, that pairs with the fare from the kitchen.

I have read some nice reviews of the Glass Brasserie, but do not know how accurate those might have been.

To give an idea of what we enjoy most, here are some of our favorite restaurants:

Restaurant August, New Orleans, LA, USA,

Restaurant Gary Danko, San Francisco, CA, USA,

Le Bernidine, NYC, NY, USA,

The French Laundry, Yountville, CA, USA,

The Greenhouse, London, Mayfair, UK,

La Mer, Honolulu, HI, USA,

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Bill Hunt
