At the forefront of Modern Italian cuisine, Otto Ristorante reinvents the flavours of Italy in stylish new forms, accompanied by amazing service in a sensational harbourside location on Cowper Wharf, Woolloomooloo. Attracting local and international acclaim for its ambience and style, Otto is one of Sydney’s most popular and best-loved restaurants, providing guests with the unparalleled “Otto experience.” “It’s a little known fact, but Sydney isn’t always sunny, and those much-touted waterside restaurants can be mausoleums on the occasional wet and miserable night. Not so at Otto, which sparkles under the sun and gleams under clouds, with its not-too-noisy, relaxed, intimate style, good food, interesting wines, and superb service. Chef Richard Ptacnik’s menu is as good-looking as the fashion-concious regulars…” Simon Thomsen & Joanna Savill, Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2011
Opened in 1947 by Abe Saffron, the Roosevelt in Potts Point was the most successful and infamous club in Australia. It brought a touch of Hollywood to town, with wonderfully produced shows, the likes of which had not been seen in Sydney; Sammy Davis Jr, Ella Fitzgerald and Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra were flown in to perform. The club became the most important stop for Sydney’s elite, including politicians, high-ranking police and judges. Early photos show Australia’s high society in attendance; the men dressed in double-breasted suits and hats and the ladies in evening gowns and furs. It was all glitz and glamour. The Roosevelt employed many interesting characters, including doormen and bouncers who became underworld figures. Abe Saffron had an ingenious solution to the problem of the prohibition of the sale of alcohol after 6pm; have the Roosevelt patrons place an order before the deadline and serve them their drinks later. In addition to the booze available many a guest, male & female, came to the Roosevelt to quench their thirst for sex and gambling. In 1954, the royal commission into liquor trading conducted by the NSW Police Commisioner, declared the Roosevelt a ‘disorderly house’, guilty of various breaches in alcohol law. Saffron was forced to give up his licence and sell the Roosevelt (the venue was allowed to reopen once the new owners took over). Over the past six decades the Roosevelt has undergone multiple reincarnations & name changes, including a radio station and has been the home to various international restaurants.
