The place that made Three, One, Two chef Andrew McConnell a household name in 1998 is still going strong. Though McConnell is no longer in the kitchen of Circa's modern, white-on-white dining room, he oversees the efforts of a trio of chefs, whose recipes continue to dazzle. The modern Australian menus change frequently but might include sautéed oyster with dashi custard and garlic chives, or roasted duck breast with duck sausage, red-lentil puree, and pickled watermelon. The wine list here is one of the best in the city, with bottles from boutique wineries not available elsewhere in the country. So if you spring for the five-course degustation menu (about $105), pay the extra $88 for the wine pairings.

No dinner on Sundays. Closed Mondays.
