Celebrity chef Neil Perry will personally open Queensland’s first Burger Project this Friday.

Rockpool Dining Group’s burger brand will make its Queensland debut at the new Southpoint precinct in South Bank this Friday 17 February.

Neil Perry will roll up his sleeves in the open kitchen from 11am on launch day, spending the day personally welcoming guests, crafting delicious burgers made from the finest Aussie beef, and putting hundreds of meals in the hands of customers who have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Burger Project in Queensland.

This will be the eighth Burger Project in the country. It’ll have a similar look and feel to its Sydney and Melbourne counterparts, with a smart, casual interior designed by architect Grant Cheyne.

The open kitchen will be located in the centre of the venue, surrounded by seating for 60 customers (outdoor seating will accommodate another 30 diners).

The menu will feature 14 hand-crafted burgers showcasing 36-month, grass-fed Cape Grim beef from Tasmania and free-range Lilydale chicken, as well as a vegetarian Magic Mushroom option. Chips can be salted and sauced-up in a range of flavours, while house-churned soft-serve features in a range of ice cream desserts.

Classic shakes, sodas and iced teas are all shaken, spritzed and brewed in-house, and exclusive ‘Project’ wines are made in South Australia by legendary winemaker Jeffrey Grosset. Burger Project’s exclusive Pilsner and craft beers by Urban Craft Brewing Co are also available.

The venue will open for breakfast from 8am-11am on Monday 20 February; you’ll be able to start your day with bacon and egg burgers, BLTs, ELTs (egg, lettuce, tomato), mushroom and egg burgers, and potato gems.

Orange juice will be freshly squeezed while coffee will be provided by boutique Victorian coffee roaster Market Lane, which sources beans from the world’s best growers.

Neil Perry says he’s thrilled to be bringing Burger Project to Brisbane, with more to follow later this year.

“It’s long been our goal to add Brisbane to our east coast road trip,” he says. “Brisbane diners love burgers and Southpoint is a stunning, centrally located precinct with lots of foot traffic so it’s a great fit.

“We’re spreading our love of quality ingredients, sourced from reputable and admirable local producers, served in a quick, convenient and relaxed setting all the way to the Sunshine State.”
