Hotel Restaurants worth eating at...Stockroom at Intercontinental Double Bay
The long-awaited Intercontinental reinvention of the former Ritz Carlton was finally opened to the public last month and its hard to find a bad word about it!
The multi-million dollar renovation signals a return to Double Bay’s glamorous and high-end status. Described as ‘more residential in design’, the in luxury hotel exudes glamour, exclusivity and affluence and the in-house eatery, Stockroom, a unique European-style open pantry opening into a stylish restaurant area, is no exception. From the restored marble floor, to the big arched windows, this space has retained its classic beauty while adding contemporary furnishings and colour.
Now to the important part, the food… which is really good! The Stockroom uses market-fresh produce prepared using a range of interesting and delicate techniques, from curing and pickling, to smoking and dehydrating and Executive chef Julien Pouteau’s international experience in five-star hotels and michelin-star restaurants brings an elegance and sophistication to a somewhat casual dining experience.
The Stockroom offers a range of dishes, from grazing plates, to seafood, salads, pasta, roasts and a Robata grill, this newby has something for even the fussiest of hotel guests!
