James St Food and Wine Trail 2021
For four days, the New Farm roadway will become a culinary wonderland.
If you're a Brisbanite with a healthy appetite, there's only one place to be between Thursday, July 29–Sunday, August 1. Take your rumbling stomach and its yearning for something scrumptious down to James Street — and fill it with tasty treats.
Over a four-day period, the New Farm precinct will become a culinary wonderland for the ninth time, once again highlighting the gastronomic delights of the area. That includes devouring delicious dishes and drinks, of course, regardless of what kind of food, beverage or event takes your fancy. And, it also boasts a whole day of market activity.
Whichever day you decide to head by, you can hop on the trail. Follow the roadway to a feast of dishes and drinks; think: Greek wine and eats at Hellenika, bar specials at Cru Bar and market specials from Mosconi.
Then, come Sunday, more than 25 businesses will unleash their wares, with the lineup spanning everything from wagyu burgers and duck pies to sourdough pizzas and strawberry and cream cakes. Because Gelato Messina calls the neighbourhood home, you'll be able to tuck into two special dessert concoctions, too, with a Snickey Glasses gelato bar and a basque Alaska paddle pop on the menu for the day.
Also on the agenda at the picnic-style event: live performances and live music. No wonder the road will be closed between McLachlan and Arthur Streets, with the trail's zone expanding over to Pottery Barn as well.
