Summer eats are on the horizon!

2020 will be over before we know it, but not before these exciting bars and eateries open their doors. Talk about ending a crappy year on a high! 

Kangaroo Point stunner Joey’s has opened this week atop the cliffs, with 180-degree views across the river, a summery European fit-out, and a menu of contemporary eats to boot. Open for breaky, lunch and dinner, seven days a week, we see Joey’s quickly becoming our go-to for a latte in the morning, wood-fired pizzas for lunch, and cocktails and prawn sandwiches as the sun sets. And, unlike Tribbiani, this Joey DOES share food.

This Sunday, November 1 happens to be World Vegan Day, and the legends at UPSTAIRS at Toombul are joining forces to create a vegan food trail for all hungry herbivores out there! Work your way through the trail and make stops at eight separate eateries, nabbing goodies like a smoked beetroot Reuben sandwich at Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq, deep-fried tofu at Jackpot Dining, polenta fries at Il Gancio, and more. The best part? All of the eats are priced at $5 or less! 

The final touches have been made and the doors are ready to swing up at Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothersbrand new gnoccheria on James St! Opening this Friday, October 30 with its iconic (and affordable!) menu of Italian eats, the New Farm joint will be taking walk-ins only, with bookings, takeaway ordering and a home delivery service coming in a matter of weeks. 

Treasury Brisbane has announced the first arrival to the much anticipated Queen’s Wharf Brisbane–overwater bar and eatery, Will & Flow. Set to open in November, Will & Flow is Treasury Brisbane’s first satellite venue, situated between the QUT Gardens Point ferry terminal and the Goodwill Bridge. The venue will be as versatile as it is good-looking, with an extensive drinks menu, array of foodie options, coffee, and event space. 

A year after opening their epic cafe and roastery in Newstead, Industry Beans has announced its new CBD haunt is set to open next month. Perfect for the inner-city crowd, the Adelaide St cafe will be slanted towards peak-hour grab-and-go service, with a delicious range of pastries to pair with your morning brew. Stay tuned for more on this exciting newcomer! 

Well. It’s a dangerous week to be a carbohydrate.
