Enjoy a new dining experience at Penrith RSL with ZACS Bar and Grill 6 Sep 11 by Staff Writer, Penrith Press
PENRITH’S newest dining experience is now open at Penrith RSL - and there is not a schnitzel or parmigiana in sight.
ZACS Bar and Grill features a contemporary menu including mouth-watering steaks, pork belly, risotto and much more.
Executive chef Gary Thomas said he was inspired by his love of fresh produce.
“I’ve been a chef for about 10 years and when this opportunity came up I thought it would be a good chance to put my stamp on something, and raise the bar for what people see as standard club offering,” he said.
“We’ve received a lot of positive feedback. At night it is a real restaurant experience with table service, and it’s also open for lunch.
“I want to keep it simple, focus on quality and offer a restaurant experience at club prices.”
And the menu is not the only thing that has been given an overhaul at the restaurant.
In a bid to involve the community, club management approached TAFE NSW Western Sydney Institute’s Nepean College to tackle the new restaurant’s design.
Nine second-year interior design students were chosen to play a key part in the project.
Penrith RSL CEO Neel Chand was so impressed with their level of professionalism that the club has introduced a full scholarship for two interior design students to study at the Western Sydney Institute, commencing next year.
ZACS Bar and Grill was named in honour of the Anzacs. It is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week
