Friday Night - cocktails & dinner

My wife & I had an enjoyable meal at The Beresford in Sydney on Friday.

Excellent cocktails in the buzzy bar with a good meal in the restaurant. Service was a touch chaotic, but the tasting menu was excellent value - $70 for 6 courses

- cheese & truffle toastie
- seared scallops with witlof
- gnocchi with ham hock & peas
- blue eye with more truffle
- beef fillet with artichoke & porcini
- an unfortunately terrible dessert - a sort of almond & chocolate mousse (it couldn't be perfect)

It was pretty full-on food, typical of a rustic italian cuisine. I'd definitely go back.

Would anybody be able to recommend more friday night places in Sydney that serve good martinis and offer a good 'degu' at under $100 a head?
