Our southern neighbours have been dining out at Masterchef Australia judge, George Colambaris’, eating empire for years, and now it’s finally Sydney’s turn to taste the goods.

Sydney prides itself on being a global foodie destination; there's not a week that goes by without the opening of a hot new eatery. And to be fair, our sparkling harbour city is home to many of the biggest names on the Australian chef circuit: Aria's Matt Moran, French culinary genius Guillaume Brahimi, brunch power player Bill Granger and iconic Quay's Peter Gilmore to name but a few. However, lauded Melbourne-based George Colambaris has been a notable absentee from that roll call of culinary talent, despite having 11 restaurants in his home town, ranging from the casual souvlaki joint Jimmy Grants to the award-winning fine dining Press Club (pictured above).

But now for the great news, in a recent interview Colambaris announced his first Sydney restaurant will open in early 2017: cue mouth-watering. The restaurant, named Elecktra, will be located in cool-kid Surry Hills and will feature the full roster of authentic Greek food that Colambaris is well-known for.  It's about time George.
