Three Michelin-starred UK restaurant L’Enclume to take up five-week residency in Australia
Last year, in the restaurant’s 20th year, L’Enclume was awarded three Michelin stars, as well as a Michelin Green Star, which recognises restaurants at the forefront of the industry in regards to their sustainable practices.
This winter, Rogan is transporting his awarded restaurant from the Northern English village of Cartmel to Sydney’s Balmoral Beach with a five-week residency at Bathers’ Pavilion.
Rogan will lead the kitchen at the North Shore venue, reimagining L’Enclume’s farm-to-table ethos with an Australian lens. The eight-course tasting menu will adapt some of L’Enclume’s renowned dishes to use local and native ingredients from sustainable farmers and producers in New South Wales. Snacks and petit fours will be served alongside the set menu, too, which costs $420 per person. Plus, tailored wine pairings will be available for $190, $290 and $750 a head.
The L’Enclume residency at Bathers’ Pavilion will run from Wednesday 19 July to Sunday 20 August. During the five-week run, it’ll be open for lunch Tuesday to Sunday and dinner Tuesday to Saturday, with an 80-person capacity per sitting. A private dining room for 12-15 diners will also be available.

Reservations are now open for Josh Niland’s new restaurant Petermen
Sydney’s seafood king Josh Niland and wife Julia are showing no signs of slowing. Late last year, the duo announced their fifth venture, Petermen, to open in the North Shore suburb of St Leonards. Now, we have an opening date – Thursday 23 February.
The 60-seat restaurant’s name comes from the 1400s vernacular, where fishers were known as Petermen in the tradition of their patron, Saint Peter. The ethos behind the new North Shore restaurant is to champion local growers and producers, with a menu that highlights the best of Australian seafood and vegetables – think smoked Tathra oysters, Manjimup marron with curry butter and line-caught John Dory from Eden.
From late next month, Petermen will be open for dinner Mondays and Wednesday through Saturday, as well as for lunch on Saturdays. It will also be open for Sunday brunch, with a more concise menu.
