Get ready to eat at…
Hop & Pickle
One of Brisbane’s favourite chefs Peter Carter, and a London and local hospitality expert Neal Orpin, put their heads together to create Hop & Pickle. This new pub embraces good fresh food, classic drinks and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere that has made Brisbane famous. It’s all about pub gastronomy here and the art of good food. Expect a range of seating amongst large group tables and menu that changes daily. Located at 6 Little Stanley Street.
If you are a fan of Beccofino in New Farm you’ll want to make your way across the river to visit the newest member of the family, Julius Pizzeria. I’ve been watching this building at the top end of Grey Street for a while thinking that it has great bones so I’m pleased to see a venue with such strong local cred opening here. Pizza is pizza but Julius has a wood-fired oven that sets it apart. Head to 77 Grey Street, South Brisbane.
There’s no mistaking what you are going to find on the menu here! Louisiana Creole means shrimp parcels, beignets, crawfish, gumbo and pecan pie. It’s from the same team that brought you French Martini, also in South Bank. The bar here is definitely one to check out too. Find it towards the Woolloongabba end of Grey Street at 184.
Kiss The Berry
Have you tried the delicious but healthy food based around a small purple berry that comes from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil? This berry has quickly developed a reputation as a super food and certainly tastes like one. Wrap your lips around acai by pronouncing it ‘ah-sigh-ee’ and order once of their bowls of wonder for a fabulous start to your day. Find it in the ABC Building, 114 Grey Street.
LiveFire Steak Bar
New from the South Bank Surf Club team, LiveFire has a open fire char-grill and an awesome selection of house made hickory-smoked cuts. Great views overlooking Streets Beach and the Brisbane CBD, too. Located at 30aa Stanley Plaza..
If you are visiting South Bank on a Sunday, mosey on down to the River Quay precinct and put yourself into one of their comfortable wooden chairs on River Green for a Sunday afternoon of local music. Plenty of good views and good vibes here.
