Brisbane’s Treasury Casino has welcomed new 154-seat steak restaurant, in partnership with The Gambaro Group.
Black Hide by Gambaro at Treasury Brisbane heroes Australian beef on its menu, alongside a selection of seafood dishes and share plates.
John Gambaro, director of The Gambaro Group, says he is proud to partner with Treasury Brisbane on the group’s third restaurant.
“We are excited to offer delicious twists to the menu in our second Black Hide restaurant, a beautifully re-purposed heritage space for guests to delight in, and of course we will continue to deliver our outstanding personalised service to guests,” he says.
The restaurant follows a paddock-to-plate philosophy and uses Queensland company Stanbroke as its only beef supplier. Wagyu steak cuts include an eye fillet and a sirloin, both with a marble score (MB) of nine. There are two dry-aged steak cut options, including a Flinders grass-fed dry aged rib eye and an Angus grain-fed dry aged rib eye.
“This traditional method of dry aging the beef on the bone for a minimum of 28 days allows the slow break down of the meat’s natural enzymes,” says Gambaro.
“When the meat is ready to be used, we remove it from the bone and remove the crust so that the beef underneath is beautifully tender and ready for cooking. The result is meaty goodness bursting with flavour and leaving nothing to the imagination.”
With views overlooking the Brisbane River, the restaurant is made up of refurbished intimate rooms, each designed to pay respect to the building’s history.
“In partnership with The Gambaro Group, we wanted to orchestrate a design that paid respect to the building’s history while reflecting our hero cuisine of succulent, tender steak,” says Kelvin Dodt, chief operating officer at Treasury Brisbane.
“We collaborated with a team of local consultants and contractors to create an edgy and sleek design combined with the types of rustic textures and materials typically found on a cattle station and butchery – think polish, leather, hand-stitched, saddle, wrought iron, rope, timber, luxe, raw.”
