Adorned with the billowy outline of the Sydney Opera House and the dramatic lines of the Harbour Bridge, the waterfront in Sydney, Australia, is among the world's most picturesque. But at Quay, a Luxist nominee in the best international fine dining category, the food rivals the spectacular views.
The restaurant reflects the tastes and whims of executive chef Peter Gilmore, who joined Quay in 2001. The Sydney native trained in the U.K. before returning to Australia, and his style reflects the combination of Eastern and Western influences that embody the land down under. For instance, Gilmore took the pork belly-an Aussie favorite-and updated it by adding a braise of green lipped abalone, handmade tofu, cuttlefish, Japanese mushrooms and chive flowers.
