Latitude trumps the attitude
Marc Kenly admits that many warned him that opening a high-end restaurant in Rockingham was a risk, but he is proving the critics wrong with his latest venture, the stylish Latitude 32. The eye-catching design and decor would not be out of place among Melbourne esteem restaurants.
‘I thought it may be difficult to open this type of restaurant in Rockingham, given the stereo types the area has but we’ve found it to be the contrary’.
Mr. Kenly and his staff serve a range of high-class cuisine and an extensive range of spirits and wine from around the world. The custom made bar stocks high end vodka, scotch and wine ranging from $25 - $400 a bottle.
‘We don’t want people coming in just to eat, but to have an experience’.
Mr. Kenly first came to Perth 4 years ago and was working at Burswood, He left that to buy a little fish and chip shop in Rockingham, now known as Dhueys on Flinders lane. When this Restaurant came available, he jumped at it. Latitude 32 is not the cheapest place for lunch in Rockingham but Mr. Kenly wants them to be the best.
‘There are some good restaurants here but we want to offer something different’.
