Your latest reason to eat breakfast, brunch and lunch riverside in Brisbane's inner north has opened its doors at Northshore in Hamilton: Riva Kitchen & Events. Table of Four, which is already behind The Garden Room at Roma Street Parklands, has spread its culinary footprint to another of the River City's green spaces — this time by the water.

The format for the company's two eateries is noticeably the same, pairing ace Brissie locations with bites to eat. But when you're peering out over the river at Riva Kitchen & Events, you'll know that you're in a different venue to Table of Four's first spot for a meal. There's still plenty of greenery surrounding the Hamilton restaurant, but your tiramisu overnight oats, truffled scrambled eggs and angus rib-eyes come with quite the backdrop.

Officially launching in May 2024, and operating seven days for daytime meals, the eatery's menu also spans house-cured salmon with a potato cake, soft-boiled egg and dill crème fraiche for brekkie — and also citrus whipped ricotta and avocado on toasted sourdough with poached eggs; french toast with homemade lemon curd, mascarpone and vanilla ice cream; and sweetcorn and zucchini fritters.

For lunch, heirloom tomato and chargrilled garlic bruschetta will get you started, before caesar salad, Balter beer-battered fish and chips, beef burgers and chicken schnitzel are among your options.

Catering for coffee dates, long lunches and weekend brunches, too, the culinary spread's focus is modern Australian dishes, but taking cues from the Mediterranean. Local and seasonal ingredients are in the spotlight.

The crew behind the restaurant have also designed the light and airy Riva Kitchen & Events to become Brisbane's next go-to to celebrate occasions, as the eatery's name makes plain. Whether it's for an intimate dinner or a party, or a wedding or corporate event, the site doubles as a venue for shindigs — with its openair features and backdrop definite drawcards.
