Glitz, glamour and golden cocktails greeted the opening of Blacktown’s newest eatery last week.
Tona Inthavong was excited to officially unveil the third location of his successful restaurant Green Peppercorn.
Tucked away beneath Central Hotel in the heart of the CBD, the lauded kitchen serves up traditional Thai and Lao food surrounded by decor to match.
Central Hotel owner Dan O’Hara said he was excited to finally celebrate and enjoy the newly-renovated space.
“We’re so happy to have so many people here tonight in support of our new venture,” he said.
“We want to put Blacktown, the Central Hotel and Green Peppercorn on the map for the right reasons: great food and a great community.”
Blacktown Council showed its support of the launch with deputy mayor Tony Bleasdale, and councillors Carol Israel and Brad Bunting on hand for the ribbon-cutting.
“As we look at this initiative tonight, how proud can we be,” Cr Bleasdale said.
“Over the next four years we intend to give life and breath to the city of Blacktown.”
The deputy mayor praised the owners for their investment, and encouraged residents to support it with their wallets.
“Let’s make Blacktown vibrant,” he concluded.
Guests enjoyed the rest of the evening, celebrating with a DJ, live entertainers and a steady supply of delicious food.
The restaurant’s famous deep-fried ice cream was well received, as were the gold-plated ‘Gold Fashioned’ cocktails.
Green Peppercorn is now open for lunch and dinner at Central Hotel, 45-51 Flushcombe Road, Blacktown.
