Four years in the making and shrouded in mystery, the Gotham Grill and Rooftop Bar will open to the public at Runaway Bay on Saturday 17 March, touted as the Ridgeway Group’s most ambitious project to date. Gotham Grill and Rooftop Bar will overlook the Gold Coast’s Biggera Creek inlet, with the three tiered Manhattan style bistro featuring two restaurants and bars under the same roof.

Upon entry, the venue showcases decadent 1920s Art Décor styling at every turn. From the red velvet carpet leading up a winding staircase and the twinkling skylights of the Gotham Rooftop, to the rich wood paneling, geometric light fittings, and splashes of metallic gold.

Gotham Grill is housed on the second level and led by culinary team Daniel Ridgeway and Head Chef Alex Kavavnaugh. An intimate dining space seating up to 60 guests, Gotham Grill is reminiscent of a classic, high end American steakhouse.

Customers can indulge in the succulent steak selection sourced from across Australia and New Zealand, coupled with an array of fresh seafood, including freshly shucked oysters, Moreton Bay bugs, scallop ceviche served on the shell, lobster tails, or order the signature Gotham Seafood Tower to sample them all.

“Aside from top notch produce and cuisine, Gotham Grill will also offer a well balanced beverage list to cater for all thirst. We are also proud to offer a great back vintage list with notable rare wines from the Barossa Valley and beyond,” says Ridgeway.

In the Gotham Rooftop Bar guests will unwind in a relaxed indoor-outdoor setting with sun downer cocktails including the famed Fruit Bat Libation or Alfred’s Tonic. Some of Ridgeway’s favourites from the bar menu include the Gotham city pizza with its thick base, Napoli, pepperoni, and mozzarella, the lobster rolls and the southern fried chicken burger with spicy mayo, and a brioche bun.

“We needed to do something a little different to meet the needs of this locale and as such we have combined stylish dining with a casual rooftop bar…all under the same roof,” said Ridgeaway. “A little bit of the Big Apple has arrived on the Gold Coast and we cannot wait to unveil Gotham Grill and Rooftop Bar.”
