Seventeen: The new restaurant and Deli opening in Walsh Bay this December

Everyone else is moving in to Walsh Bay and Barangaroo, so it makes sense for Seventeen to stake its claim in the prestigious part of Sydney that is Walsh Bay.

Seventeen is the result of the inherent knock-on effect that restaurant owners have, sprouting from the loins of the owner’s other project, El Phoenician.

It’s a new pad, overlooking the seventeen moorings that float among the finger wharfs of Sydney’s iconic foreshore, making it ideal to double as a lively cafe by day and a contemporary restaurant by night.

Its contemporary Australian menu is curated by the skilled hands of notable chef Clint Jaeger, who’s on a missions to showcase a menu that’s abundant with locally-sourced produce, served with freshness and vibrancy, and complemented by an all-Australian wine list.

Coming from the likes of  Tetsuya’s, Banc, Bill’s and Hugo’s, Jaeger has created a diverse range of menus. Breakfast features light and fresh dishes like the ‘bircher muesli with fresh seasonal fruit, strawberry lime consommé’ and ‘acai coco bowl with almond meal and honey salted cashews’.

Lunch on the other hand is steered by a strong coastal sensibility with ‘fresh Yamba prawns chilled over flaked ice’ and ‘slow poached lobster roll’, alongside grilled meats and tasty salads.

Meanwhile dinner is all about the theatricality of their food, working with mains that are cultivated by the best that Australia’s ocean and pastures have on offer. Think ‘summer asparagus with twice-cooked, coddled, brioche crumbed egg and truffle pecorino’, ‘apple duck confit with celeriac remoulade, macerated figs and summer herbs’, ‘hot smoked Huon salmon in chermoula basting with sweet corn purée, confit potatoes and crispy pancetta’.
