Chef Ben Shewry and his team at Attica have become part of restaurant royalty since appearing on the San Pellegrino World's Best list. The restaurant's dining room in suburban Ripponlea is low-lit and unassuming, but there are fireworks in the kitchen. With the nightly extended tasting menu, diners are presented with a procession of small, carefully crafted dishes (vegetarian version available) that incorporate foraged local ingredients. Tuesday night is when the chefs try out new dishes.
