Renowned Greek restaurant, Perama, will reopen in its original Petersham location in July after it was closed in 2011, Good Food reports.
Perama was known for having an unbroken decade-long run of chef hats up to its closure, as well as its signature caramel baklava ice cream.
It will now be reborn as Perama 2.0 after the building’s landlord approached chef, David Tsirekas, about reopening at the recently vacated site, according to Good Food.
“Thanks to the support of a beautiful hearted individual… he knows who he is and I’m certain you will all meet him when Perama returns,” Tsirekas wrote on Instagram.
Tsirekas tells Good Food the new restaurant will include a smart cocktail bar, as well as a rebranding tweak in line with its updated menu.
The lamb and pork belly will be back, along with some fun stuff Tsirekas has been developing, including gemista rice. Toppings include tomato infused with nori.
“The physical transformation begins next week. The essence will remain the same though. Food, drink and philotimo, that were the pillars of the OG Perama, will return after its ten year absence,” Tsirekas posted on Instagram, under a photo of keys to the restaurant.
