Left it until the last minute to book lunch for the Melbourne Cup?
It's the race that stops the nation - unless you work in hospitality. Luckily for us, some of Sydney's best restaurants and bars are putting on a show for Cup day, from Quay chef Peter Gilmore's clever reworking of his famous Snow Egg (it's now nestled in green 'turf'; see above) to an eight-course banquet at Bondi Hardware. So forget the pub next Tuesday - if you're going to escape the office for a long lunch, why not make it worthwhile?
