Neil Perry’s original Rockpool Restaurant was in a building in George Street, Sydney. His later restaurant Rockpool Bar & Grill (no longer owned by Perry) is in the former Burns Philp building in Bridge Street, Sydney. Prior to joining the hospitality industry, Perry started an apprenticeship as a hairdresser before dropping out and working as a waiter. This is where he found his calling as a chef.

Perry’s career in the hospitality industry began with managing Sails restaurants in the Sydney suburb of McMahons Point, and then at Rose Bay. This was where most of Perry’s floor management skills were learned. By the time he was 24, he found himself gravitating toward the kitchen and realized his passion for cooking by working with, and learning from over the ensuing years, chefs such as Damien Pignolet, Gay Bilson, Stephanie Alexander, Steve Manfredi and David Thompson. Although he uses the title, Perry never actually completed a chef apprenticeship.

He became head chef at Barrenjoey Restaurant, Palm Beach and was given creative control over Perry’s in Paddington. In October 1986, Perry opened the Blue Water Grill at Bondi Beach which became an overnight success. He then opened Rockpool in February 1989 with his business partner and cousin Trish Richards.

In 2007, Neil Perry opened Rockpool Bar & Grill in Melbourne. Less formal than Rockpool, the restaurant is an upmarket steakhouse, located in Crown Casino. High-quality beef cooked over a wood-fire grill, supported by a modern and international à la carte menu form the backbone of the food served. In spite of the riskiness of opening a large restaurant (serving up to 200 people a day) in a venue as high profile and lucrative as Crown Casino, the restaurant has proved a major success. Rockpool Bar & Grill Melbourne has also received positive reviews from critics since opening, including being awarded two coveted “chefs hats” in the Melbourne Good Food Guide.

Neil Perry is also a notable food personality within Australia, appearing on Channel Nine’s food program, Fresh and being a major presenter on the channel the digital subscriber’s network, Foxtel, on the LifeStyle and LifeStyle Food channels in Australia and on BBC2 in Britain.
