Tapas designed to look as good as they taste are key to Pullman Brisbane King George Square’s new Tapastry menu at Bistro Allure.
Designed by renowned restaurateur Justin North, the plates showcase regional ingredients, weaving together the best producers from regions all across Australia.
“I wanted to create a menu of dishes that could be adapted regionally using the best local produce so that there is consistency across the brand while still maintaining a sense of place. The beauty of the small tapas style dishes is that you can experience many different regions in the one sitting, often in the one dish, giving you an appreciation for the destination and it’s excellent variety of produce,” North said.
One of Australia’s most celebrated chefs who has won GQ Chef of the Year, Gourmet Traveller’s highest ranking and Chef of the Year in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide, not to mention sustaining two coveted chefs’ hats for more than eight years, North is enjoying working with Pullman’s chefs nationally, including Pullman Brisbane King George’s Square’s Executive Chef Ben Limpus.
What’s on the Bistro Allure menu? Amongst the 14 dishes of tasting size portions expect to find delights including Byron Bay salumi and pickles, roast pork belly with slow cooked octopus and miso eggplant, lemon and oregano buffalo wings, and tunisian lamb short ribs. North describes the food as simple, elegant,and produce-driven with ingredients as the highlight.
Located on the corner or Ann and Roma Street in Brisbane, with a separate entrance to the hotel, Bistro Allure looks out across the bustling pedestrian streetscape capturing Brisbane at its best, with views extending across iconic King George Square and Brisbane City Hall.
“Bistro Allure has always enjoyed an amazing location and outlook. It really is perfectly located for diners wanting a quick lunch or after work dinner in the heart of the CBD,” says General Manager Grant Parnell.
