Blue Plate Grill brings a different dining experience to Sydney’s Neutral Bay.
May 18th, 2011
In an area saturated with restaurants and stylish eating places, the brief was to create a shabby chic, North American-style “bar and grill” concept to suit the savvy Neutral Bay dining market.
The project involved a complete strip-out of the existing restaurant and a refit, incorporating a new kitchen, oyster bar, booths, tables and bench eating areas along with a lounge area and bar.
Food code compliance and theatrical ambience was created by installing a grid of stainless steel tubing from which large cooking pots and bunches of herbs are proudly displayed.
The grand chandeliers are a talking point and the warm and congenial atmosphere of the restaurant has been created by attention to detail to upholstery, flooring, curtaining, lighting and carefully matched colours.
