What's New This Week

Rain, rain, go away – but seriously, Spring is getting started slower than our brains on a Monday.

At least that means the imminent threat of magpies is also postponed, right? Right?

We want instant gratification, and we want it now. So, if you’re looking to maximise the season with some top notch eats, read on.

Heritij | Brisbane Quarter

Our love of Indian runs in the family – and the launch of Brisbane Quarter’s Heritij is taking our tastebuds on a wild ride. An Asian-Indian restaurant and bar, Heritij is set to impress with a new dining experience in the 788m2 restaurant, offering lunch and dinner with a view of North Quay.

Persone | Brisbane Quarter

Brisbane Quarter is booming, baby! With the recently completed precinct coming to life, Persone is also making its debut this week, offering stunning river views as well as sensational food. But what else can you expect from the latest edition to the Gambaro group?

Boom Boom Room | CBD

Step down to the basement-level cocktail lounge that is Boom Boom Room for a night of jazz, blues and cocktails from luxurious booths. Once bank vaults and now part of newcomer Donna Chang, this bar is an opulent addition to Brisbane and features table service, smooth tunes and decadent drinks that’ll keep you going well into the night.

California Lane | Fortitude Valley

Let’s give a warm welcome to Fortitude Valleys latest laneway! After months of anticipation, we’re finally able to run, arms open, into the warm embrace of new cafés, new eats and boutiques. Think Doughlord, Fat Dumpling and New York Slice amongst others!

Fritzenberger | Wilston

This Saturday, Wilston will say hey to Fritzenberger. The Petrie Terrace fave is opening its doors in Wilston Village with eight new beers on tap and fresh frites and burgers – and we’ve got our knives and forks (hands) at the ready!

DA’Burger | Ascot

Speaking of burger expansions, Saturday will also see the launch of DA’Burger in Ascot. To sweeten the deal, they’re offering $10 burgers and wings for the grand opening, so you’ve got no excuse to miss out.

Milton Markets Seasonal Flavours | Spring Edition

We’re celebrating the new season with the last edition of Seasonal Flavours for the year! Welcome Spring with a plethora of new season produce, gourmet eats and specialty stalls, and learn the tips and tricks of pasta making at two cooking demonstrations from the Pasta King himself, Enzo.

Chop Chop | Surfers Paradise

Previously known as 8 Street, the Gold Coast’s newly renamed Asian food precinct is stepping its game up with the introduction of not one, not two but five new venues, serving Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine.

Food Truck Carnival | Gold Coast

Three days of Food Kartel, Bao Brothers, King of the Wings, Little Havana and more… What else could you ask for? The Gold Coast’s Food Truck Carnival is parking at the Broadwater Parklands from the 14th to the 16th with delish eats, pop up bars and live music to get you through the weekend.
