Back in 2016, Bentley co-owners Brent Savage (food) and Nick Hildebrandt (wine) announced they were going 100 per cent vegetarian with fine diner Yellow. Their aim? To show that vegetarian and vegan dishes are just as tasty as any other menu item. Now, it's one of Sydney's go-to dining destinations.

Set in Yellow House on Macleay Street, the bistro's name and design pay respect to the building's history as an artists' dive during the 70s when Brett Whiteley, Martin Sharpe and George Gittoes would reportedly grace the place with their presence.

Designer Pascale Gomes-McNabb gives due respect to the original building by retaining a bohemian character and featuring exposed brickwork. The fit-out takes a leap forward into high irony with elements such as distressed wooden tables that belong more at a beachside country kitchen than inner-city bistro, but with the geometric bling of mirrors and gold frames as a counterbalance, we know we're in safe hands.

Service is snappy and informative, and early on a Monday night the place had a Friday night buzz. Open seven nights a week from 6pm (and for lunch on weekends), this could very easily become a second home for Potts Point locals. Lucky things.
