Dress Codes in Higher-end Sydney Restaurants

Bill Hunt | Jun 23, 2013 07:41 PM

We are preparing for our upcoming trip to Sydney next month. This will be our first trip to Australia (as we had to cancel similar two years ago), and I have a question:

We are dining at Glass, Sepia, Quay, Tetyusa's, EST and Otto, during our stay.

We are normally a bit more formal, in our dress, than many others, but have lived in a "resort community," that is also very warm much of the year. What is the recommended dress-code in such restaurants, in Sydney?

I always travel with a blazer (even when going to Hawai`i), but I want to know if that will be adequate. I will bring a couple of ties, but should I wear those? If so, which restaurants?

I have looked over the various Web sites, but this is a subject that I cannot find answered. While I have no problem being overdressed, I hate being under-dressed with a passion.

As this will be during the Australian Winter, my wife is planning on packing a few St. John's knit suits with skirts, and a few "black dresses." With the correct accessories, will she be comfortable?

Thanks for the responses,
