About Contact Bar & Kitchen

Living in a fast-paced city like Sydney, we often lose sight of where our food comes from, and Contact Bar & Kitchen is here to change that from the eastern suburb of Woolloomooloo. The use of all-natural produce in its dishes is only one part of it; the crew takes pride in passing on knowledge about the ingredients you consume, and the menu at this trendy Crown Street hotspot is built around Mediterranean-inspired sharing plates made for any time of the day. Experience a conscious approach to dining like never before at this gem, though we highly recommend that you book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Food was excellent and prepared with a very deft hand in the kitchen; flavours and combinations were sublime in the pork and mascarpone tortellini, and sous-vide salmon.

What a smashing meal. Every course was fun, thoughtful and delicious. Great wine choices. The artichoke chips and Parmesan custard was the standout, but the duck, scallops and steak were cooked to perfection Will be back
