You may have walked past the empty space on Rundle Street where Cocolat used to be (RIP), and wondered what the future holds for your shopping or stomach filling needs. Well the wait is over.
New restaurant Petrichor has made house and home of the space at 281 Rundle Street, serving up European bistro food.
Owner and operator, Umesh Randeniya, describes the meals as an amalgamation of French, Greek, Italian and Spanish cuisine, and says the combination of different flavours allows for use of a variety of fresh South Australian produce.
Petrichor’s chef, Pierre Richez, collaborates with some of the best SA producers to get access to the finest ingredients, oh and not to mention, he has worked with 28 Michelin star restaurants in Europe, wowee.
A sneak peak of a few of their menu items include; The Holy Quail – roasted, deboned local quail, with sour cherry sauce; and minted fregola with quinoa tabouleh with heirloom tomatoes.
Umesh is well versed in running businesses himself, as he owned and ran Meraki Greek Cuisine in North Adelaide for three years before the opportunity arose to move to the East End.
The venue boasts a global wine list, which matches the diversity of their menu, by serving up wines from all over the world – from Lebanon to France to Basket Range in Adelaide. Sold.
If you’d like to make a booking for a relaxing dinner, or need somewhere to go for a Christmas shindig, give Petrichor a call on 8359 3555.
