Two more for Perry

September 2008

A smarty pants reader picked up on my boo-boo last month, predicting that Rockpool Bar & Grill would open in Sydney, when in fact it was already a done deal. Indeed, come late January there’ll be not only Rockpool Bar & Grill (66 Hunter St, Sydney) as currently wowing ’em in Melbourne (now that’s what we call an out-of-town tryout) but also Spice Temple, offering regional Chinese food in the basement of the same building, the art deco City Mutual. Now, it seems to me it’s getting mighty crowded down that end of the city what with the Hemmes empire of — how many? — bars and restaurants clustered around the old Bulletin building in George Street. The sooner we get a light rail down to the Quay the better. We’ll take a closer look near opening time.
