Restaurateur Jason Jones is upfront about where he got the idea for his latest restaurant Entrecôte, which has just opened in Melbourne’s South Yarra. “I’ve been travelling to Paris for many years and one of my favourite restaurants there is Le Relais de L’Entrecôte,” he says. The legendary restaurant chain in Paris serves just one dish: steak frites. Diners are offered two servings of the steak, smothered in a pepper sauce, and the French fries are unlimited. “It opened in 1959 and just serves one dish and I loved it and thought it would work in the Australian market,” Jones says. The Australian Entrecôte serves up exactly the same menu for a set price of $39, and Jones’s team spent eight months trying to replicate Le Relais De L’Entrecôte’s sauce.
