In the mood for a Friday lunch splurge, without the pre-weekend budget blowout? This week, Neil Perry's fine dining institution Rockpool Bar & Grill has you covered, when it hops across the river for a special lunchtime pop-up in Alfred Place. The event is part of Rockpool Dining Group's June Producer Series, which heroes top local produce and suppliers.
Pay a lunch visit from midday this Friday, June 22, and you'll be able to sink your teeth into a selection of primo Rockpool dishes, at around half of the usual price. That means both your wallet and your tastebuds are in for a serious treat, with entrees like oysters with mignonette clocking in at $19, and sides, including those legendary hand-cut chips a mere $6. A selection of mains from the wood-fire oven come in at just $29 a pop, including fish teamed with green olive butter, and a succulent Cape Grim scotch fillet with veal jus (which would usually be $70 at the restaurant).
Make it a long lunch with one of the restaurant's famed passionfruit pavlovas ($12), and wine by the glass, bottle or carafe.
