Petermen's Sunday Roast
This roast at Josh and Julie Niland's St Leonards outpost is truly like no other.
July 20, 2023
Who doesn't love a Sunday roast to get you through the colder months? While there are plenty of places in Sydney where you can find a classic roast, St Leonards is now home to one of the most unique iterations of the weekend tradition. Josh and Julie Niland's newest restaurant Petermen brings the couple's boundary-pushing approach to seafood to the North Shore — and it's just introduced a weekly roast with a difference.
As should be expected with the Nilands, the fruits of the sea are the stars here. Diners can choose between three different roast options: crown roast Aquna Murray cod with bread sauce, dry-aged Mooloolaba yellowfin tuna ribeye with pepper sauce and rolled Mooloolaba swordfish loin with barbecue apple sauce.
Each roast is designed to be shared between two guests and comes with a heap of impressive sides. In place of your steamed unseasoned veggies, you'll find crunchy Murray cod fat potatoes, a head of fresh vegetables sourced from local growers and Yorkshire pudding, of course. You can also add decadent Manjimup truffle as an indulgent extra.
As part of the festivities, Petermen is also hosting a weekly raffle. Each Sunday lunch, all bookings will be entered into a draw to win a $150 selection of goods from Fish Butchery including seafood sausages, pies and chops — Josh Niland's version of a meat tray.
The three-course Sunday roast will set you back $140 per person, so it is pricier than your meat and two veg from the local pub. This is a truly one-of-a-kind roast, however.
