With a seafood restaurant, hotel and steakhouse all housed on the same stretch of inner-city roadway, Gambaros has long been synonymous with Caxton Street in Petrie Terrace. The group is breaking that trend with its latest venture, which isn't actually located next door or across the road from its existing establishments. Instead, a second Black Hide is set to open in the Treasury Brisbane in the CBD.
Expanding Gambaros' luxe steak brand, Black Hide will nestle into the Queen Street side of the casino, opening its doors on Friday, June 8. Patrons can expect river views, a bar overlooking Reddacliff Place, and a six-room setup that makes the most of the heritage building's features — including a ten-person private dining space filled with timber, brass and marble.
Of course, hungry diners can also expect marbling in their steak, with two cuts boasting the highest marbling score given according to Australian industry standards. Wagyu and a pair of dry-aged cuts are also available, with the latter on display in a glass cabinet. Also forming part of the decor: a library-style knife collection featuring 126 pieces of silverware.
For those keen on something other than steak, the 154-seat eatery also serves up a hefty range of seafood, including mains of lobster and Moreton Bay bugs, and small plates filled with caviar, smoked salmon, calamari, Hervey Bay scallops and oysters.
Drinks-wise, Black Hide's wine list spans more than 20 grape varieties from well-known wine regions around the world — with more than 150 bottles on display.
Find Black Hide by Gambaro in the Treasury Brisbane, top of the Queen Street Mall, Level 1, Treasury Casino Building from June 8. The restaurant will be open for lunch from Tuesday to Friday, and for dinner from Tuesday to Sunday. For more information, visit the Treasury website.
