Rockpool Bar & Grill unveils Sydney’s most exclusive steak-tasting dinner

Monday, 2 September 2019: Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney has launched the country’s most exclusive steak-tasting dinner and masterclass series, featuring rare and exclusive cuts of beef that are not available at any other restaurant group in the world.

Each dinner is hosted in Rockpool Bar & Grill private dining room by Head Chef Corey Costelloe on the last Tuesday of every month, from 6.30pm.

Guests are served five cuts of premium beef, spanning grass-fed and grain-fed cattle, as well as different breeds and ages, which have been dry-aged, in-house for different lengths of time. The superlative steak showcase is flanked with light entrees and dessert, as well as side dishes and paired wines, for $180 per person.

The menu may vary each month, pending the availability of several, rare steaks. However, it will feature at least one steak from iconic, beef farmer David Blackmore that is exclusively supplied to two restaurants in Australia – Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney and Melbourne – such as Mishima, or Rohne. Mishima is the original, native Japanese cattle, which predates Wagyu. Blackmore is the only producer of Mishima in Australia. Rohne is a new breed, of secret, genetic make-up, which comes from a small herd and is only available in small quantities.

Blackmore Wagyu, which is widely considered the best Wagyu available outside of Japan, is also included on the
steak-tasting menu, as well as a little-known dairy breed from Coppertree Farm in Budderoo NSW, which will make an appearance when it is available. Rockpool Bar & Grill is the only restaurant that is commerically supplied with this
full-flavoured, 60-month-old Friesian Holstein, which is prized for the depth of flavour found in mature beef.

Rockpool Dining Group Culinary Director Neil Perry said the steak masterclass enabled guests to try some of the most rare and exclusive beef in the country, as well as taste the difference between grass-fed and grain-fed breeds, and to appreciate contrasting flavours of different ages of beef – from 36-month-old to 60-month-old cattle.

“Rockpool Bar & Grill’s steak portfolio is unequivacolly the best in Australia,” Neil said. “Our steak dinner and masterclass gives guests the opportunity to try a wider selection of premium beef in one sitting, including beef that isn’t avaliable anywhere else in the world.”
