Artists, mu­sos get RoyAl treat­ment

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

HE has dreamt of own­ing his own restau­rant since the age of nine but now Vic­to­ria Park’s Alas­dair Craigie’s goal has fi­nally come to fruition.

His new restau­rant, RoyAl’s Chicken and Burg­ers, opened in East Vic­to­ria Park ear­lier this month and com­bined three of Mr Craigie’s big­gest pas­sions: food, mu­sic and art.

Along with a menu fo­cussed on fried chicken and gourmet burg­ers, RoyAl’s Chicken and Burg­ers will be dec­o­rated with pieces from lo­cal artists and will host an oc­ca­sional live mu­sic night.

“We want artists to feel com­fort­able us­ing RoyAl’s as a plat­form to ex­hibit their work; that way we al­ways keep things fresh and in­ter­est­ing for the cus­tomer and help lo­cal ta­lent,” Mr Craigie said.

For­merly the head chef at high-pro­file restau­rants Sen­tinel on St Ge­orge’s Ter­race and Steve’s Ho­tel in Ned­lands, Mr Craigie said he left those cov­eted roles in to bring new flair to the lo­cal burger scene. d454044

“Vic­to­ria Park has al­ways been our fam­ily’s place of choice for din­ing out; I like the re­laxed, ca­sual at­mos­phere,” he said.
