WITH a fresh new look, restaurant-and-bar Jarrod & Rawlins made its presence in Jalan Bangkung known in style and good taste, recently.

The restaurant, which is modelled after a modern British gastro pub, played host to a drinking and tasting party for invited guests and members of the media.

As Jarrod & Rawlins continues to evolve as a mainstay of Kuala Lumpur’s dining scene, it has introduced a fresh and exciting look to its latest addition.

Elegant sage green walls, comfy booths and large mirrors make up the tastefully decorated restaurant and bar.

The charming and convivial environment makes it an excellent place for lunch meetings, dinner parties and gatherings. One can also dine al fresco style on high stools and tables placed at the sidewalk.

The input for the new look comes from Jarrod & Rawlins founder Denis Rawlins, himself.

During an interview, Rawlins said he had wanted an English concept for the new restaurant and had worked around it by taking inspiration from English pubs to provide the home-away-from-home feel.

“It aims to bring business and family people together with comfort and familiar food in a cosy environment,” he said.

The menu features the restaurant’s all-time favourite sausages, hearty sandwiches and gourmet burgers, along with satisfying pastas and well-liked pub classics.

Due to space constraints, the popular Jarrod & Rawlins delicatessen is not a feature at this place. The deli is available at its branches in Damansara Heights and Ampwalk on Jalan Ampang.

“At this restaurant, we are doing away with some dishes and introducing new ones but our favourites will stay,” he said.

Describing the Jalan Bangkung venture as an exciting new beginning, he said it was also heartbreaking having to close their first shop in Hartamas.

“Placing ourselves here on Jalan Bangkung, we complement the existing restaurants and we also have competitve offers for happy hours.

“We are perceived to be expensive. I’m not saying we’re cheap but you pay for the quality you get. People who come here, they know that they are getting good, quality food,” he said.
