LuMi Bar and Dining
This tasting menu-only Pyrmont restaurant offers refined Italian fare with Japanese influences.
Lumi is Italian for 'small lights', and, true to that theme, LuMi Bar and Dining creates a delightfully intimate (and well-lit) atmosphere. Led by head chef Federico Zanellato and his wife and sommelier Michela, LuMi combines Italian heritage with Asian flavours to offer a casual yet refined dining experience. The simplicity of the European decor is in stark opposition to the complexity of the cuisine it houses.
Meanwhile, the food is a fusion of modern Italian and Japanese flavours, serving up refined seasonal produce over a series of spectacular courses that look almost too good to eat. The chef's menu ($185 per person) lets you explore it all, with the Italian-focused wine pairing highly recommended ($115 per person).
