In tribute to Australia’s favourite season, Belvedere Bar & Grill has launched a menu that is big on both bold, sizzling steaks and refreshing, light salads.
Renowned as one of the best dining precincts in Brisbane, Belvedere sits proudly on the river at the sophisticated waterfront precinct of Portside Wharf.
Portside Wharf is also home to a host of boutique retailers and boasts some of the best luxury residential living in Brisbane with four riverside residential towers now complete in the masterplanned development.
With the new menu, Belvedere is turning its focus to more traditional steakhouse dishes, complemented with a large selection of lighter options to reflect the warmer weather.
Belvedere Head Chef, Mark Maric said the new menu had something for everyone and every occasion – from light ladies lunches, to a big meaty feast.
“Our steaks are our big focus so we have worked really hard on getting them right and expanding our range, with Wagyu and Cape Grim now a feature on the new menu ,” he said.
“We are moving towards dry aged beef which is the more traditional method of ageing, as opposed to the more common process of wet ageing.
“Dry aged beef offers a unique eating experience and produces a steak that is more tender, with a richer, beefier flavour.”
Also new to the menu is the 1kg T-bone – grain fed for 70 days, this meaty dish is designed to be shared and takes 45 minutes to cook to medium.
But it’s not all about steak – pan roasted spatchcock, baked barramundi and asparagus and mushroom gnocchi all have their place on the diverse menu.
Entrees and bar snacks are also plentiful with dishes like garlic prawns, beef tartare and the cured and dried meat plate, all perfect to start your meal or to nibble on while sipping a beer on the timber deck overlooking the river.
“The roasted bone marrow with toasted ciabatta, parsley and shallot salad is one of my favourites and I’m also excited about the certified organic beef Carpaccio with crispy capers, truffled pecorino, rocket and lemon mayonnaise,” said Maric.
Belvedere is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. For more details phone 07 363 0411 or www.belvederebarngrill.com.au
