Sepia Restaurant, Sydney

Hi ladies! A quick foodie post for you today! About a fornight ago the hubby and I took my sis to Sepia Restaurant to celebrate her birthday. We were a bit undecided where to go and we ended up deciding on Sepia as they do Saturday degustation. There's nothing like a loooooooong lunch! Sepia is a three hatted contemporary Japanese influenced restaurant (recently named restaurant of the year!!) which is a collaboration between seafood supplier George Costi and previous head chef at Tetsuya's Martin Benn.

Inside the restaurant! The interior and decor is rather dark for my liking but nice all the same.

Pambula Bay oysters with vinaigrette to start off with:

I didn't feel like a cocktail and they didn't have any mocktails unfortunately so I went with teas for my degustation. How cool is this teapot!
