It's a sad goodbye to the famous Billy Kwong but a happy and frantically-waving hello to Besser - a new Italian eatery opened up by the same team from A Tavola in Darlinghurst. It has only been open for two weeks but it's definitely gaining traction as the new place to be on Crown Street in Surry Hills. Since it is literally across the street from my home church, I didn't really have any excuse not to try it out.
My fellow eating companion and I walked in on Sunday afternoon and were seated at the window. It's always a bit weird to be sitting in front of the window. I always try to tell myself that everyone walking past is not staring at me as I try to maintain some dignity while scoffing down my delicious meal when deep down I know that, yes...they are.
