Black Bar & Grill has aspirations to celebrate local NSW wine producers and Australian makers in general, but to also be a full-on international wine list of quality. It succeeds admirably in both. It is possible here to enjoy glasses of artisanal sake, Penfolds Grange or a J.J. Prum Mosel Riesling while reading about the history of viticulture and winemaking in the Sydney region or learning more about featured NSW producers. Champagne, Burgundy and a host of top Italians shine alongside top Oregon pinots and the odd South African. Leave room for the very serious selection of digestifs to finish.
