Drink/Dine ian 4/10/2013

There’s a little multicultural foodie oasis only a little more than an olive’s toss from Rydges Sydney Airport – a lot of people imagine the airport to be in the middle of semi-industrial suburbs like Mascot, Botany and Tempe but Brighton-Le-Sands on Botany Bay is also a neighbouring suburb and there are some eclectic, exciting eateries in the Grand Parade and Bay Street vicinity.

There’s Kamari, a traditional Greek restaurant – been there for 15 years, named after Kamari Beach on Santorini (from memory that one is a black sand beach and Brighton Beach is white sand!) – everything you expect on a good Greek restaurant menu including imported Greek wines…

Also Greek/continental style across from the beach is Mezes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks - open seven days…

With great views of the beach, Bar Brazilia is an authentic Brazilian Churrascaria – lots of tasty marinades and fire-roasted meats, open seven days for dinner and Wednesday to Sunday for lunch…

The Sahra Restaurant (photo) serves up delightful Lebanese and seafood dishes with an al fresco option overlooking the water – closed on Mondays…

The Sahra is owned by the Kazzi brothers, John and George, and they also own nearby Café Neptune which is more modern Australian with a Mediterranean and Italian influence.

Further along the parade is Jailhouse Rock, a pizza/pasta Italian option with water views and Elvis memorabilia – gets rave reviews…

For traditional French fare there’s Larousse where things like Soupe à L'Oignon au Gratin and Escargot Bourguignon read so much nicer than onion soup and snails…

And rather than ‘waterfront’ the Signature Brasserie is ‘water’s edge’ serving up modern Australian as well as tapas, seafood and gourmet pizzas.

Bon Appetit!
