An Iconic Hotel
s most enviable waterside address
(formerly Newport Arms)
Merivale is set to open Bert’s, an elegant yet
informal brasserie and bar overlooking the pristine
Pittwater estuary and expansive grounds of The
Newport, in early January. Led by an impressive
line-up of hospitality talent – Executive Chef
Jordan Toft, Group Sommelier MS Franck
Moreau and Group Bars Manager Sam Egerton –
Bert’s will serve a coastal European menu in a
dining room fit for an era gone by.
Whimsical and nostalgic, Bert’s is inspired by the
grand hotel dining rooms of the 1930s, relaxed
with the easy air of Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The impressive kitchen takes centre stage,
accented by charcoal ovens and basque grills,
opening up to an elegant brasserie and cocktail
lounge. Its colour palette of jade green and coral
pink sings throughout. Bert’s food harks back to
its environment, marrying the class of the early
20th century and frivolity of the 60s, with
celebration firmly in mind. The menu is broken
up into the open kitchens you see within the
dining room – starting with the raw bar’s classic
offerings of natural oysters, dressed crab and
toasted brioche canapés followed by leaf salads
and charcuterie from the larder. For mains,
guests can choose lobster from the tank, a
selection of beef or whole fish roasted in the
charcoal oven or cooked over the basque grills,
accompanied by simple preparations of
vegetables. Dessert will be decadent and fun to
finish the celebration in style.
