One of the most iconic restaurants in the Brisbane restaurant scene, Gerard’s Bistro is among the latest venues to hit the fashionable James Street precinct. Renowned for its Middle Eastern influences and a relaxed yet sophisticated dining experience, Gerard’s Bistro delivers a multi-faceted venue – in both its styling and offering.
Nestled away in Gerard’s Lane, the Bistro is an elegant blend of fine lines, sharp angles and smooth finishes. Boasting an impressive array of earthy materials including marble, brick, timber, steel, brass, copper and glass the space plays host to a central bar that enhances the ambience. Glimpses of artisan Moroccan tiles and bespoke fittings reinforce the Middle Eastern theme. With both indoor and outdoor settings, the Bistro is suitable for Brisbane’s mild temperatures all year round.
Gerard’s Head Chef, Ben Williamson (previously of Urbane/The Euro, Cha Cha Char and 1889 Enoteca) takes his menu inspiration from recent sabbaticals across southern Europe, the Middle East and northern Africa. The Bistro’s food offering focuses on seasonal local produce and the marrying of unusual flavours to deliver a cuisine designed to excite. Iconic Gerard’s Bistro dishes such as slow roasted wagyu brisket and vine leaf bound quail will take diners on a culinary journey and generate curiosity and conversation.
To complement the food offering, guests are invited to indulge in an extensive wine and drinks list. Diners can choose from a selection of aperitifs that will awaken the palate prior to a meal or can select their drink of choice from a range of premium champagnes, wines and spirits as well as local and imported beers.
Gerard’s Bistro is the destination of choice for Brisbane diners, boasting an evolving food offering and decor that is exclusive to the Gerard’s brand. Lust after the menu and relax in the ambiance, all whilst nestled away in Brisbane’s premier dining precinct.
