Guy Grossi, one of Melbourne's most influential chefs and restaurateurs, is headed to Perth. Garum, his restaurant set within the new Westin Hotel, will explore ancient Roman cooking through a contemporary lens. It takes its name from a fermented fish sauce used as a condiment in ancient Greece, Rome and Byzantium.
"In Melbourne we have nurtured a strong sense of community for three generations and it is this ethos that drives the restaurants day to day. It doesn’t just include our city but extends to all those that we deal with in our industry and beyond. It’s through these interactions that we have had the pleasure of many significant connections with Western Australia and its people over the years," Grossi said in a statement.
"When the opportunity arose to work with BGC Development and The Westin on a project as exciting as this we were naturally inclined to say yes."
