Blue Plate Grill by Forward Thinking Design

Blue Plate Grill brings a different dining experience to Sydney’s Neutral Bay.

Blue Plate Grill by Forward Thinking Design


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.
