Awarded Two Chef Hats - The SMH Good Food Guide 2010-2014
Rockpool Bar & Grill is a steakhouse like no other in Sydney. The soaring art deco interior of the City Mutual Building, coupled with the old-worldly attentiveness of the wait staff and the bar stacked with 6,500 Riedel glasses will impress even the most seasoned of fine diners. The main game is meat, but the menu veers into seafood and pasta with dazzling finesse.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Neil Perry’s be-feathered cap is getting a little crowded with plumes and yet he has managed to squeeze in another monolithic triumph somewhere in the gaps. Boasting one of Sydney’s most strikingly gorgeous dining rooms, Rockpool Bar and Grill is located within the depths of the 1936 Emil Sodersteen-designed art deco building; its entry, while a little intimidating, is nonetheless spectacular. Once ushered inside, the marble columns and soaring ceiling are enough to keep your face turned upwards; however, the menu will quickly vie for attention through way of your tastebuds. Sourcing ingredients from Australia’s premium producers, and making a point of dry aging the beef themselves, the fare predominately focuses on wood-fire grilled meats and seafood.

The four types of beef – ranging from Wagyu rib eye to skirt cuts – provides the perfect opportunity to carve into Australia’s best, and the team encourage a shared dining experience for a comparison of different cuts. The seafood selection too, offers delicious dishes such as a black lip abalone steak, charcoal oven-grilled swordfish and crispy leatherjacket fillets with “crazy water”. Before you dive headfirst into mains, whet your appetite with a lobster omelette with prawn sauce, oven-roasted sardines on preserved lemon salsa or follow through with the underlying theme and tuck into Neil’s steak tartare with chips. You’re almost certainly going to find a delectable drop to match your meal from the (bordering on ridiculous) 3500-deep wine list, although it may put a small dent in your wallet. The connecting bar provides an idyllic setting for a post or pre-dinner drink, or a more casual dining affair.
