I'm quite the globe trotter, in Sydney for the last few years and a fond writer I'm exploring what the city and its surrounds has best to offer!

Authentic French cuisine does not need a trip to France anymore. Coming into La Brasserie, I have felt transported into the middle of a typical Parisian café. The smell of baguette, snails and fromage made me travel for a little while very far away from the close-by Kings Cross' craziness.
Not only is the food amazing, the whole crew of waiters and the owner himself cannot be more authentic when it comes to talking about France, wine or cheese. I was not far of falling off my chair the first time I came there, feeling on holidays the time of a meal, despite it being a rainy Tuesday night.
We could have thought that the French cuisine would be too pricey, it is not! Well, I couldn't make it my everyday lunch place, but for a high standing restaurant, it seems to me that the owner has decided to provide a fresh and french feel to the Australian gourmets with no need to spend an arm and a leg.
You may find me enjoying a fondant au chocolat when you come experience France in Sydney!
After I read this article I looked at the website and worked out that for 3 courses plus coffee and 1 bottle of wine between 2 the cost would be around $260 and Theo says this is not expensive, he must be loaded. I think mains being charged at $40+ is a joke there are plenty of good restaurants out there who do not charge anything like this
