Rogue is the brainchild of owner and chef Daniel Myers together with partner Rach Myers, and serves up Modern Australian cuisine in a relaxed, inviting environment, giving diners the opportunity to eat great food, without having to dine fine. After a 2020 makeover (longtime fans will know Rogue has been around for a while), the venue is looking better than ever, with a luxe all black interior and enclosed front patio providing a intimate escape from the industrial strip on Austin Street outside.
Step through the sliding door which tells you to 'slide to go rogue' and be seated for a dining experience with a difference. An all new refined dinner menu will change each month, but for now features old favourites like pork belly morsels with endive, peanut butter and fennel marmalade, and inventive new dishes like miso torched salmon and fish crackling. Can't decide, despite the shorter menu? Just opt for 'The Faves,' which gets you six courses for $85pp, or 'The Feast,' and all out extravaganza of every main and side to share between 2–3 people for $130.
Vegans and vegos will be happy to know there's a dedicated menu each for them as well, and frankly, we'd happily go in just for a bowl of Rogue's fried brussel sprouts in ponzu glaze. The drinks list has also had a refresh, with plenty of new cocktails to drink your way through, and BYO nights from Tuesday to Thursday.
