Fancy chowing down on some of Brisbane's best Italian and Chinese cuisine, but not so keen on making the trek to the western suburbs? Come February, anyone with a hankering for Pizzeria Violetta or Sichuan Bang Bang need only venture as far as Paddington. That's right: the two Kenmore favourites are expanding.
The extra venues will mean that traditional-style pizzas and flavoursome Sichuan cooking will only be a stone's throw away from the inner city. It also means that twice as many people can enjoy the likes of Violetta's tasty calzones and Bang Bang's feast of local dishes at any given moment.
The news caps off a big year for the sibling restaurants, particularly considering that Pizzeria Violetta only opened back in March. It quickly became one of the city's must-eat Italian spots, and expanded its operations in October. If you've dropped by during the day, then you've probably seen the results. When the sun is shining, Violetta becomes morning coffee shop Benzina.
Benzina will also pop up at the new Given Terrace digs, gracing the deck that joins the two eateries. That makes three great places to eat in one convenient inner-west location. Yep, everyone's a winner.
