Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth is back in business
Tuesday, 4 August 2020: Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth is reopening on Friday 14th August after withstanding the double setback of a kitchen fire and the Covid-19 hospitality sector shutdown.
Following a five-month hiatus, and with strict safe-dining measures in place, the inaugural dinner service from 6pm will be followed by lunch and dinner on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August. The restaurant will resume a Wednesday to Sunday dinner service from Wednesday 19th August, as well as lunch every Friday to Sunday.
The reopening brings a team of around 60 team members back to work, including Frenchman Ludovic Mulot who assumed the Head Chef role in November 2019, after a nine-year tenure at Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth and 11 years with the Group.
Chef Ludovic says he is delighted at the prospect of welcoming guests back and working once again with Western Australia’s premium produce and bountiful winter harvest.
“We will be focusing on what we know our customers have missed: our classic dishes, our uncompromised focus on the finest produce, and the signature flavours from our charcoal oven and wood-fired grill,” Chef Ludovic said.
“If one good thing has come from our temporary closure it’s that we have some fabulous, older dry-aged beef in our dry-aging room, which has a terrific flavour profile and transforms into excellent steaks. It makes for really good eating, right now.”
Rockpool Bar & Grill reopens with strict safe-dining measures in place, including a thorough pre-opening deep clean. All team members are undergoing extensive health and safety training, and enhanced, ongoing cleaning measures, including frequent disinfecting of high-touch surfaces, will be implemented. In addition, hand sanitisers will be located throughout the restaurant, single-use menus will be offered to guests and cashless transactions will be encouraged.
Opening hours: Lunch Friday-Sunday 12pm-3pm. Dinner Wednesday-Sunday 6pm-10pm (11pm Friday and Saturday) Bookings: Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth.
