We're Pyrmont defenders here at Time Out, and here's why: long dismissed as a bit dull, we reckon Pyrmont has a lot going for it. First of all, there is the obvious stuff. The Fish Markets – now complete with one of Sydney's best yum cha dens. The casino, recently refurbed and revived as The Star and jam-packed with awesome things to eat like Messina ice cream, Adriano Zumbo treats and Momofuku Seiobo, David Chang's only restaurant outside of New York. The various views of Sydney harbour you can find on the slivers of foreshore. But as Pyrmont has become a central hub for the Sydney media – Fairfax and Channel 10 call it home among others – and the workers have demanded a good café and drinking culture. And if you're after something fancier, Flying Fish at Jones Bay Wharf is still going great guns.
