Traveling to Sydney for work for two weeks. Unusual restaurant suggestions?

Hi everyone:

I'm going to be in Sydney for about two weeks and I'm trying to put together a list of places to eat. Ultimately, I've seen the boards here, and checked the top ten lists, so already aware of places like Rockpool and Quay. Although I'm sure I will end up eating at places like that, I'm also looking for places that are a little less obvious. Something that's not quite so....elaborate, I guess. Partially because we can't eat like that every night, but also because my schedule there is going to be fluid, so it's difficult for me to make reservations weeks ahead of time and actually have any certainty that I'll be able to make them.

Would love suggestions for places that have excellent food in general, but would also be curious about anything somewhat unusual. I'm lucky to live in a city with tons of great restaurants, so anything that would be a bit unusual or Sydney-specific would be terrific. Also, I'll be traveling with someone who LOVES offal, so any place that specializes in that would be fantastic. (For instance, something like Josie Bones in Melbourne seems perfect. Unfortunately, it's in Melbourne.)

We'll be staying at the Sheraton on Hyde Park, but obviously willing to travel for any recommendation. (Although, that said, we'll be there for two weeks, so any places that are walkable from there would be great to know about.)

Excited to visit! And thanks in advance for any advice you all might be able to pass along!
