The $150 four course menu will complement the existing $185 eight course tasting menu.

Chef Perry said the new menu will be targeting those consumers looking for a shorter dining experience.

“Our corporate customers in particular, who want to dine at Rockpool in the evening as well as lunchtime, are looking for the same dining experience, but over a shorter time frame, typically two hours,” he said.
