These are the 3 restaurants at the absolute top of my wishlist at the moment- places I've never been but really want to try- based on hype and hearsay

Smoked trout fritter, garlic aoli
Smoked hock terrine, cornichons, toasted brioche
Rich flavours of the hock in the lightest of light environs- an absolute delight!
Sugar cured ocean trout, potato pancake, crispy bacon, horseradish cream
Breast of honey smoked duck, figs, walnuts, wild rocquette (to share)
The sweetness of the honey smoking and figs complemented the duck so well- perfectly cooked!
Chargrilled tuna, skordalia, grapes, capers, pine nuts, white anchovies
A perfectly cooked piece of tuna- the skordalia was brilliant (must get a recipe for that!).
I'm not going to attempt to describe the wines- as I am anything but an expert on wine, but their 2005 Pinot took my fancy (http://www.meadowbankwines.com.au/popups/wines/pinotnoir.htm)- some of our party really enjoyed the unwooded chardonnay http://www.meadowbankwines.com.au/popups/wines/chardonnay.htm.
But make your own call on the wines.
