Parlour Group, the hospitality leaders behind Riley St Garage, Surly’s and The Village Inn, are set to open a stunning new dining destination in Rosebery’s The Cannery in October. Stanton & Co. will be captained by the group’s award-winning Executive Chef Regan Porteous and serve a modern Australian menu with Japanese influences, alongside a diverse drinks menu.

Named after Richard Stanton, the property developer responsible for transforming the area into an industrial suburb in the early 1900s, Stanton & Co. will be home to a spectacular dining room, expansive bar and open kitchen. The team, led by owner Brody Petersen and General Manager Bay Kilpatrick, have collaborated with the renowned Alexander&Co to design the space, drawing inspiration from the site’s rich heritage and New York’s Meatpacking District.

Brody Petersen, owner of Parlour Group, said: “We are so excited to be joining the Rosebery neighbourhood. The area is thriving and has really come alive as a leading food destination in Sydney; it is inspiring and exciting for us to be surrounded by people who share our passion for great food and drink. We want to create a beautiful venue that is fun, relaxing and vibrant, a place where guests feel like they are eating at a bar rather than drinking in a restaurant”.

Executive Chef Regan Porteous is leading the charge in the kitchen, working closely with Head Chef Marcelino Papio. Both chefs have long tenures with Parlour, having joined to open the group’s flagship restaurant, Riley St Garage, in 2013. The duo has created two distinct menus for the restaurant – fast, fresh and a la carte for lunch and a more extensive, shared concept for dinner – both reflecting Porteous’ approach to modern Australian fare and appreciation for Japanese flavours. The venue will have a strong focus on cocktails, alongside an approachable and balanced wine list and premium craft beer selection.

Stanton & Co. will cap off what is an exciting year for Parlour Group. After taking over the keys to Glenmore Road pub, The Village Inn, in 2016, Parlour recently refurbished upstairs into a modern sports bar and introduced Sunday afternoon acoustic sessions, trivia night and live drawing classes. Surly’s in Surry Hills has recently launched a new bar ‘Smokey’s Cabin’ with live music every Friday and Saturday night, while Woolloomooloo’s Riley St Garage is celebrating four years. Petersen has also just returned from a stint at the Harvard Business School, taking part in their international Program for Leadership Development with other company leaders from across the globe.

Further details and the opening date of Stanton & Co. will be announced in due course.

About the Stanton & Co. site:

Steeped in heritage, the site was formerly part of a model industrial suburb created by John Sulman and developed by Stanton and Sons between 1911 and 1920. It was later the Sydney factory for the Cyclone Fence and Gate Co, one of the major Australian producers of welded wire and steel gates and products originating in the late 1930s.
