Chef Lennox Hastie having made a name for himself in Europe working for several Michelin restaurants and cooking with fire (literally), in Spain, returned to Sydney in 2011. Partnering with The Fink Group (who he’s been with since arrival) opened Firedoor in 2015. Since then, it’s been one of the most talked about new restaurants in Surry Hills.
Hunter and Barrel 5.9
We had been to this venue before, and the prior score of 6.5 out of 10 declared we were “scraping the bottom of the barrel” of Steakboyz standards. Yet we returned, hoping the first visit was an anomaly, and that maybe we were a bit harsh with our inaugural review......
Teddy Larkin’s Seafood & Steakhouse 7.9
A family owned restaurant, with a focus on warm and friendly service, ensuring you have a fabulous experience at Teddy Larkin's time and time again.
Elements Bar and Grill 8.4
“IT'S ALL ABOUT...TASTE, SMELL AND SIGHT”. The team behind Elements Bar and Grill is united by a passion for food – refined, quality, flavoursome food.
Fire & Ice 8.1
The month of February inspired the Steakboyz onto their first quest of 2019 to find QUALITY STEAKS.
Fire & Ice in Manly has unbelievable relationships which go back over 20 years and the owners David & Sharon Diamond still buy from some of their suppliers acquired back in November 1995.
Coming to the end of 2018, good establishments taking large groups are hard to come by. In keeping with the Sydney Steakboyz theme of not only frequenting well established venues but also exploring new ones.
Whilst in keeping with our current quest of finding ‘hidden gems’ we headed off to Sydney’s Inner Western suburb of Balmain to our chosen restaurant DarlinGreen.
Named after William Balmain a surgeon on the first fleet, this Sydney suburb is all heritage with architecturally significant buildings, landmarks and full of history making events.
BoVine Brasserie 7.3
The Boyz decided to change tack for the New Year, instead of heading off to the city in search of a hatted restaurant we ventured into the suburbs to find our new favourite steak restaurant.
Sydney Chophouse 8.7
Deep in the heart of the Sydney CBD, where the streets are alive with the foot traffic of late-leaving office workers and Thursday night shoppers, the Sydney Steakboyz gravitate to the next chapter of our steak odyssey. From the street, one wouldn’t know what you’re missing out on - Chophouse is as discreet as it is impressive.
Steersons has been in operation since 2004, originally operating as Kingsley’s Steakhouse (and co-owned by the original Kingsley’s Steakhouse - refer our third restaurant review). It differentiates from its sister restaurant with a relatively sleeker more modern presentation with the added bonus of providing views over Darling Harbour.
The Rockpool name is synonymous with fine dining in Australia. First opened in 1989 in Sydney, the original Rockpool quickly made a celebrity of its owner and head chef Neil Perry.
Hunter & Barrel 6.5
Inspired by a hunters theme of timber, solid wooden tables and wine barrels - Hunter & Barrel in Cockle Bay Wharf brings with it coal fired meats and barrel aged spirits.
The Meat & Wine Co 8.1
With more than 10 top class steak restaurants in Sydney CBD it made it very difficult to choose the first restaurant for our inaugural SteakBoyz night.
Kingsleys Steak House 6.7
The Sydney Steak Boyz met for the second meal together in April at Kingsley Australian Steak House in King Street, Sydney.
The Cut 7.2
Sydney SteakBoyz descended on The Rocks - Sydney’s famous heritage, social and cultural precinct. The chosen restaurant, “The Cut” is located in the historically significant Argyle Stores commercial building.
