Eightysix is an upscale restaurant located on the corner of Lonsdale and Elouera Streets. With a swanky dining room and an open kitchen, Eightysix dishes up modern Australian sharing plates via a la carte and tasting menus.

For a worthy summary of the restaurant's offering, opt for the $86 tasting menu. It sports bites like pumpkin and mascarpone tortellini, kingfish and mezcal ceviche, black chicken paired with buttermilk slaw and a house-ground cheeseburger slider.

Arguably the best is served last: mango cheesecake and a frozen take on the negroni. The restaurant also makes a point to offer pregnancy-friendly, vegetarian and gluten-free options.
