Celebrity chef Neil Perry opened this restaurant in a grand Art Deco building. The kitchen specializes in wood-fired grills and house-aged beef.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This year-and-a-half-old spin-off of celeb chef Neil Perry’s Sydney restaurant is one of the anchors of a casino-hotel complex run by Australian gaming and entertainment mogul James Packer. Perry ages his own steaks and, through his power-player connections, scores fish of a quality that would usually only be exported to Japan. Rockpool also has one of the best selections of American wines in Melbourne.

We loved: Live Tasmanian scallop ceviche.

Insider tip: The wine bar in the dining room serves bargain dishes.
