Australian chef Louis Tikaram announced he was moving back home in May, and the chef has now revealed his next move.
Tikaram will spearhead Stanley restaurant at Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves precinct,which opened last year.
The Cantonese restaurant will offer a menu inspired by the food he enjoyed growing up made by his Fijian-Chinese grandmother.
Diners can expect a menu chock-full of local and sustainable seafood and produce from Palisa Anderson’s Boon Luck Farm. Roast meats will also be on offer alongside dim sum potentially crafted by a chef from Hong Kong or China.
Tikaram will join a raft of leading chefs who have made the move to the precinct including Alana Sapwell (Saint Peter) who runs ARC Dining, Patrick Friesen (Merivale) and Jonathan Barthelmess’ Greca and soon-to-open izakaya.
Stanley is slated to launch in October.
