I'll be in Sydney for only three days and plan on eating as much as possible. I know the must-try is Tetsuya's and I've also heard of a new place called Long Grain, which is supposed to be fantastic and extremely difficult to book. Have any of you eaten there and what do you think of it? What kind of food? Does anybody have the address, phone number and fax?? I did a Google search but can't find anything. Is it really that good or are there other, better places to try. I don't want Chinese (I live in Hong Kong) but I want to eat any other cuisine (especially modern Australian) that's fantastic. I've tasted Luke Mangan's (from Salt) when he was a guest chef in Singapore and Hong Kong, but what else? Rockpool? What else is Neil Parry doing now? This is my first trip to Sydney so I want to make it a fantastic eating experience.
Also, re: Tetsuya's, are they still on Kent Street? I've heard they moved - is Kent Street the new address or the old?
I'll also be in Melbourne which I'm less familiar (food wise) with. Any top recommendations??

Many thanks.
