Award-winning chef Lennox Hastie takes traditional BBQ and open-flame cooking to the extreme at his rustic Surry Hills restaurant, Firedoor. Taming hot coals to create striking dishes of vegetables, seafood and meat, the restaurant is a dining experience that comes with entertainment. Guests have a clear view of the open kitchen and can watch the masters at work among the 900C flames.
The $140-per-person five-course menu changes daily depending on the seasonal ingredients available, and only the highest quality produce making the cut – Firedoor works with farmers and small-scale producers to grow bespoke vegetables, rare ingredients, and aged meat for the restaurant.
Hastie honed his skills in Michelin Star restaurants across France, Spain and the UK before returning to Australia where he is critically acclaimed. Since opening Firedoor in 2017, Hastie published his debut book, Finding Fire, which features 80 of his best recipes. Hastie also features in an episode of the latest Chef’s Table: BBQ series on Netflix.
