From the guys behind Sydney-favorites Porteno and Bodega is Continental Deli Bar Bistro. It’s a small 20-seat spot with a more formal dining room upstairs, but the bar is where you want to be, drinking a Mart-tinnie (a martini that comes in a can). Canned things are a theme that extends to the food menu, which includes various styles of fancy fish and meats (sprats, sardines, mackerel and liverwurst) imported from Spain. Crack them open at the bar with some cheese, olives, and some crusty bread.
