Carrington’s The Criterion Hotel has re-launched!
While there may be a new team and management in place at Carrington’s much-loved Criterion Hotel, there are some familiar faces bringing their flair and flavours to the bar and restaurant.
Rafael Tonon, ex-MEET and Goldfish in the Hunter Valley, is on board as Executive Chef and has already gone about overhauling the menu. Sitting across the operations of the hotel is Ronnie Stricke, also ex-MEET and Goldfish. The duo have worked alongside one another for nine years and always deliver something special when it comes to flavour and service.
Speaking with co-owner Luciano, he explained The Criterion will continue to be your friendly neighbourhood hotel and retain that cool suburban vibe that the hotel is so well known for. Luciano went on to say:
“With the kitchen team we have pulled together there will be a strong food focus that can be enjoyed by everyone.
“We will also continue to support local music artists and our goal is to become known as one of the best for pub food and service in Newcastle.”
The new menu launched on Wednesday 10th May, and the team invite you to join them and enjoy the new flavours.
