Firegrill, An Opulent New Steakhouse Restaurant, Is Now Open At Barrack Place

Bars, Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 2 March 2020

Firegrill delivers a 300+ seat steak and seafood grill restaurant to the Barrack Place dining precinct.

Barrack Place is quickly becoming one of the CBD’s most exciting food precincts. The restored laneway re-emerged in early 2019, clad in exposed brick and home to a string of familiar names including Cali Press, Fishbowl and St Dreux Coffee (just to name a few). In a bold new step for the precinct, Barrack Place has just welcomed a daring new dining destination.

Unlike its more casual neighbouring venues, Firegrill Restaurant and Bar is set to deliver an elevated steak and seafood-focused dining room. The venue commands attention, split across two levels and running the entire length of the Barrack Place laneway between Clarence and Kent Street. At the Clarence Street end, you’ll find a more casual street-level bar and restaurant kitted out with an eight-metre tall wall of wine. Upstairs, you’ll find dedicated spaces for events as well as private dining rooms.

At the Kent Street end of Firegrill, expect to find the luxe main open kitchen and lofty fifty-seat mezzanine dining room. The space is centred around the show-stopping three-metre tall chandeliers, a true sight to behold. Here you’ll find several Chef’s tables, bar seating overlooking Kent Street as well as a luxe cocktail bar and courtyard.

Firegrill Restaurant and Bar is the latest project from restauranteur, Dah Lee (a key figure in New Zealand’s iconic Wildfire restaurants). For Lee, this latest opening is about timeless appeal and elegance. “All the décor and furniture pieces have been selected to reflect the concept. We have included natural elements including oak timbers, quartz and leather to create a luxurious and exciting fun vibe in each space,” explains Lee.

Lee has called in his old Wildfire colleagues including Chef, De Cuisine along with Firegrill’s Head Chef Nghia Dinh (ex-Wildfire, Tetsuya). As the name would suggest, the menu at Firegrrill will be focused around charred and smoked elements with seasonal ingredients all set to be touched by fire. Alongside the kitchen team, experienced sommelier John Clancy and top mixologist Amanda Gilroy will be joining the bar team at Firegrill.

Firegrill Restaurant and Bar is now open for dinner Monday to Saturday and lunch Monday to Friday at Barrack Place (151 Clarence Street, Sydney). Find out more here.
