Meet Gaslight Bistro, from the team behind South Brisbane's Hoo Ha Bar.
If you've ever been to South Brisbane's Hoo Ha Bar, knocked back a coffee or beer and thought "this joint needs more food", you're in luck. The folks behind the happening Tribune Street spot share your line of thinking, and are parlaying it into a new venue on the other side of the inner city: Gaslight Bistro.
Making its home in a renovated old Queenslander in New Farm, Gaslight Bistro will be all about fresh ingredients and flavourful meals. The name gives away its focus on eating rather than drinking, though thanks to a curated beverage list of craft brews, local wines and cocktail concoctions, the latter is certain to be a feature too.
Casual but tasty dining is its niche — aka the kind of informal place where you can drop in for a delicious bite and hang around for some good times if that's what takes your fancy. The full menu is yet to be revealed but will focus on seasonal delights. Given its winter launch, that means the likes of slow-cooked ham hock and beef shank for breakfast, wagyu pastrami and pickles for a snack, and braised octopus for dinner, first up.
Come June 26, 2015, you can sample their wares for yourself — and then probably add it to your list of favourite hangouts, based on their previous endeavours.
