Wine time at Peel Street Grill & Cellar

Calling all young, young at heart, and those who have matured with age – have we got a find for you! Tucked under The Capitol Apartments in South Brisbane, Peel Street Grill and Cellar is busy making one hell of a splash in the Brisbane wine and dine scene. It’s not just about the food offering at this new dining spot. Taking over and completely reinventing the space previously occupied by Peel Street Kitchen, Peel Street Grill and Cellar pride themselves on their boutique cellar set up, offering a vast selection of specialized wines and tap beers. You can pair them with gourmet feeds in the bistro, nab a seat by the bar and match them to charcuterie or just take a bottle home to the couch. peel street kitchen 2 Located just minutes from the ever popular South Bank strip, and only a quick stroll from cultural hubs like GOMA, QPAC and The Queensland Theatre Company, Peel Street Grill and Cellar is a refreshing change from the regular pre-show haunts and post-work drink spots. Whether you’re starting the day with a coffee and a little Monday motivation, nipping over the William Jolly for lunch out of the city, or in need of a wine down after work, there’s something on the menu to please everyone. Drop by every second Friday and have a crack (and a cracker) at their exclusive cheese and wine nights, or give yourself a chance to stop and smell the rosé over a long weekday lunch. Dine on their one-of-a-kind menu items, like crab linguine with chilli, garlic, white wine and lime, or share a combination of small plates and pizzas among friends with deliciousness like twice cooked wings, calamari and pork belly with Asian slaw. peel street grill 3Of course, their namesake – the grill – is where the real party starts, with offerings like a grass fed Cape Grim rib on the bone, or Darling Downs petit eye fillet. Sink your teeth into a mouth watering 350g Rangers Valley rump and choose between a side of sautéed kipfler potatoes with spinach and bacon (SOLD!) or fries with roast mushrooms and confit tomatoes. And, if a glass of wine wasn’t enough (because one never is), top it all off with a house made red wine jus. If you’re lucky enough to be in the area around lunchtime (deliberately or by ‘accident’), Peel Street Grill and Cellar dish out an express lunch menu for only $10 each. Test your taste buds on a double cheese, Angus beef, bacon, onion jam and chutney burger, or a rib fillet steak sandwich, and watch the tuna eaters in the office go green with jealousy when you post your lunch pic on Instagram. Life’s too short to drink bad wine, so next time you’re looking for a boutique meeting spot, corporate lunch digs, or an after work watering hole, Peel Street Grill & Cellar has a space, a wine, and a gourmet dish (or entire plate of cheese) with your name on it.
