Located on the ground floor of Double Bays exclusive Inter-Continental Hotel sits the latest venture for the Gallagher Hotel Group.
Owned and operated by Patrick and Angela Gallagher of Gallagher Hotel Group Mr G’s pays homage to Patrick’s father, referencing his fathers long serving nickname “ Mr. G”.
Best known for their work with the PJ Gallagher’s Irish Pub chain, the duo were first to recreate the authentic feel of an Irish pub in Sydney, with people flocking from across town to enjoy the traditional food, beverages and friendly, warm atmosphere. There are currently five PJ Gallagher’s across Sydney, with Mr. G’s being the sixth venture for the busy team.
Leading the charge in the Mr. G’s kitchen is Head Chef (and part owner) Dave Little. Before embarking on this role, Dave was the Head Chef at Uncorked Restaurant and Le Bistro in North Sydney and also a private chef to the stars including the creator of Star Wars George Lucas!
“We aim to deliver an authentic American grill with a focus on quality sourced meat, seafood and fresh produce,” says Dave. “We cook all of our proteins in the Mibrasa Charcoal Oven which gives it a real unique smoky flavour.”
Dave experienced a Mibrasa cooking demonstration presented by Comcater Corporate Chef Glenn Wright late last year and as a result the team at Gallagher Hotel Group decided to incorporate it into their newest venue.
“About 50% of the steaks we serve are eyes fillets and they are pretty much impossible to cook on a grill alone. First you have to char them and then put then in the oven to finish them off; however with the Mibrasa the ambient heat that surrounds them cooks them perfectly. You get a great crust on them and an amazing flavour, it’s fantastic.”
In addition to the large variety of the highest quality steaks hand selected and sourced Australia the menu also includes delicacies such as Huon Salmon Gravlax and Black Royal Caviar.
“It is a 120 seat restaurant and we employ 4 chefs. We have been extremely busy ever since we opened, we are doing really well and hope that we can replicate it and open a few more across Sydney,” said Dave.
Mr. G’s Bar & Grill is set to be a definite stand-out in the Double Bay bar and restaurant scene. With an emphasis on sharp service, impressive menus, stylish drinks selection and a bustling American vibe, customers can experience their own slice of Brooklyn in a chic Double Bay setting.
