Bill Drakopoulos’ Sydney Restaurant Group buys Summer Salt


Bill Drakopoulos‘ Sydney Restaurant Group has added the popular Elouera Beach residing venue, Summer Salt, to its growing business portfolio.

According to The Leader, when the prominent restaurateur learned that the restaurant was for sale last spring, he paid a lunchtime visit, unannounced.

“As soon as I walked in I thought, ‘Wow, this is phenomenal’,” Drakopoulos said.

“There is none more beautiful than this, although I think it needs a makeover and total refresh.”

Drakopoulos said the group wanted to work very closely with the surf club as well.

No stranger to Sutherland Shire, and having spent his childhood in Kirrawee, Drakopoulos also attended Gymea High School and surfed with his brothers on Cronulla beaches.

“They are good people and [they] do great work and we have a moral responsibility to do some fund raising and so on”, Drakopoulos added.

“We may also be able to assist them with catering for their functions..”

Drakopoulos anticipates that by early March, the refurbished venue will be open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
