Cone Bay barramundi with spanner crab and prawn tortellini, sweet corn and thyme butter

It had been raining all week. I prayed to the weather gods (or maybe I just asked the Café Sydney staff) to please make it not rain today, and look at the service. They not only made it not rain, today was the quintessential Sydney winter’s day – clear blue skies, a light breeze and 20 degrees. A perfect way to spend lunch with a colleague from the US, and his birthday to boot!
