Culina Et Vinum is bringing European dining to the heart of Elizabeth Bay

"Everyone and everybody is welcome!" says Naomi Lowry, owner and head chef at Culina Et Vinum, Sydney's newest European restaurant that has just opened in the heart of Elizabeth Bay. "It's not going to be fine dining, but it is going to be finessed," she says. Lowery, who previously worked as head chef at the benchmark for Italian eating, Popolo in Rushcutters will be serving up a carefully curated and sophisticated menu featuring dishes from her Grandmother's recipe book.  

Culina Et Vinum serves up a wholesome and considered seasonal menu. "You'll never get bored, as the menu is a rolling one" says Lowry whose passion for creating delicious meals to share is mirrored by her desire to continually expand her bank of recipes. The English-born, globe trotter moved to Sydney in 2007 with 80kg of recipe books in her luggage. "But if a dish comes off and there is uproar, it will make a reappearance, we will listen to what our guests want."

The delightfully quaint and intimate venue opens up to a courtyard where guests can sit down to enjoy balmy summer nights with a cool glass of rosé in hand.
