  1. Love the becasse post. Been very few postings on the SFF in general, and I was wondering if the SMH was doing some unsubtle censoring.

    We are off to the H&M dinner tonight and cant wait.

    I still dont understand why becasse is rated below some of the other restaurants in sydney. It deserve better IMHO.

    Its totally consistent: service impeccable, food sublime. And most of the time i can recognize whats on the plate and trace. Cant abide cucumber foam.

  2. Thanks.
    Most definitely the best 2 hatter in town and most consistent for sure. Hopefully you'll enjoy H&M.

  3. Great dinner! Kitchen had a slight hiccup half way through with most of the upper tables waiting 45 minutes for a bouillabaisse course that arived cool. Wine was well matched and so much food. We rolled out the door.

  4. That is a shame about the delay. I almost forgot about the wine. It was well matched. Sommeliers these days are so good in some places we hardly bother reading the wine list any more... we just ask them for their recommendations.
