Gotham is the latest (and hands down greatest) project of lauded restaurateurs Daniel and Ruggie Ridgeway. Well respected for their Mermaid Beach institution Little Truffle and the BiN family of tapas restaurants, Gotham Bar & Grill is seriously ambitious and unlike anything they’ve attempted before.
Gotham is two levels of Manhattan-inspired sophistication with two separate restaurants, including Runaway Bay’s first rooftop bar. Swoon! Picture this: opulent 1920s Art Deco styling, red velvet carpet, metallic accents, intimate lighting and a winding staircase to the upper floor.
Sixty-seat fine dining restaurant Gotham Grill focusses on tender cuts of steak and fresh-off-the-boat seafood, ideal for celebrating those special occasions. Upstairs, the breezy rooftop bar brings the outdoors in, paired perfectly with cocktails, vino and delicious NYC-inspired thick base pizza or soon-to-be-your-addictive-habit, lobster rolls.
