The second child of internationally renowned chef Jock Zonfrillo — just a staircase away from his Restaurant of the Year winner Orana — Bistro Blackwood recently underwent a refresh, doing away with communal tables in the soft, cozy space and vamping up the menu. Zonfrillo can be seen dashing up and down the stairs and even out the door to his latest venture, Mallozzi, an Italian spot with salumi bar that opened late last year on the same block. What he most celebrated for, however, is his bush tucker. The Scottish-born chef masterfully incorporates indigenous ingredients, used for centuries by Aboriginals but overlooked by and large in contemporary Australian cuisine until recently, into elevated but simple bistro-style (at Blackwood) and upscale (at Orana) dishes that change regularly, according to what his purveyors have in supply.
