Rockpool Dining Group and Neil Perry will serve their first house-made burgers in Brisbane on Friday, 17 February when Burger Project makes its Queensland debut at the new Southpoint precinct in South Bank.
Perry will be in the kitchen from 11am on launch day, welcoming guests and crafting burgers made from Australian beef.
The eighth Burger Project in the country and the first in Queensland is similar in look and feel to its Sydney and Melbourne counterparts, with a smart, casual interior designed by architect Grant Cheyne.
Located on street level of the new Anthony John Group precinct, the modern venue has ground-to-ceiling external glass walls that offer a view of the light-filled, spacious interior, and the street beyond. A large, open kitchen is located in the centre of the venue, with seating around it for 60 customers. Outdoor seating accommodates a further 30 diners.
The menu features 14 burgers showcasing 36-month, grass-fed Cape Grim beef from Tasmania, free-range Lilydale chicken, as well as a vegetarian Magic Mushroom option. Chips can be salted and sauced with a range of flavours, while house-churned soft-serve will also be on offer.
Classic shakes, sodas and iced teas are all shaken, spritzed and brewed in-house, and exclusive ‘Project’ wines are made in South Australia by winemaker, Jeffrey Grosset. Burger Project’s exclusive Pilsner and craft beers by Urban Craft Brewing Co are also available.
Burger Project Southpoint will open for breakfast from 8am–11am on Monday, 20 February, with bacon and egg burgers, BLTs, ELTs (egg, lettuce, and tomato), mushroom and egg burgers, and potato gems.
Orange juice will be freshly squeezed, while boutique Victorian coffee roaster Market Lane will provide the beans.
Neil said he was thrilled to be bringing the first Burger Project to Brisbane, with more to follow this year.
“It’s long been our goal to add Brisbane to our East Coast road-trip,” he said. “Brisbane diners love burgers and Southpoint is a stunning, centrally located precinct with lots of foot traffic so it’s a great fit.
“We’re spreading our love of quality ingredients, sourced from reputable and admirable local producers, served in a quick, convenient and relaxed setting all the way to the Sunshine State.”
