Restaurateurs Josh and Julie Niland have announced that they will be relocating Saint Peter to the Grand National Hotel in Sydney’s Paddington this summer in 2023.

The pair will also be taking over the operations of the newly renovated boutique hotel, in order to provide visitors with an all-encompassing dining experience.

“Saint Peter will not just be a restaurant, but a boutique hotel with 14 rooms,” says the couple.

“The hotel will provide our restaurant guests with an opportunity to extend their Saint Peter experience with a luxurious overnight stay.”

Saint Peter’s current Oxford Street location is set to close early 2023 in anticipation for the move.

“362 Oxford Street has been our home for six years and we have achieved a lot as a team within those four walls,” says the couple.

“However, the opportunity to create a more expansive and accessible dining experience for our guests and creative opportunity for our team is incredibly exciting.”

The new site will have a 45-seat dining room with an open kitchen, wood fired grill and a window into fish charcuterie cabinets and displays.

Guests can expect an extensive a la carte menu which will use quality produce and offer a diverse selection of different fish species.

The restaurant will continue to explore the endless possibilities of cooking with fish and work with local leading fishers, oyster growers, vegetable growers, winemakers and producers.

Saint Peter will also have its first-ever bar with a separate offering that will provide a more paired-back lunch and dinner experience.

In addition, the space will feature an impressive private dining room which will seat 15 guests.

The Nilands first opened the original venue in 2016 and have since expanded with Fish Butchery in Paddington and most recently, Charcoal Fish in Rose Bay.

Fish Butchery, located on 388 Oxford Street, will continue to trade as normal.
