Brisbane's evolving dining scene has attracted a Michelin-starred chef from Singapore who will team up with Brisbane and Gold Coast restaurateurs to deliver a fine-dining destination overlooking the Brisbane River.
While the name of their restaurant remains confidential, its location is no longer a secret.
The 788-square-metre restaurant will be on the first floor, and the largest tenancy, at Brisbane Quarter and will overlook the Brisbane River.
Michelin-starred chef Manjunath Mural's distinctive "Asian-Indian cuisine" combined with the expertise of Brisbane’s Nick Pinn of Malt Dining and Gold Coast’s Sridhar Penumechu from Saffron Restaurant is anticipated to bring a dining and bar experience unlike anything else offered in the city.
The trio have also decided to keep the initial concept for the bar under wraps, but have revealed it will focus on gin and exclusive American whiskey blends.
Mr Sridhar and Mr Mural are friends and the chef loves the Brisbane lifestyle, so he plans to share his time between Brisbane and Singapore while setting up the new venture.
“My dream is to share my style in presenting Indian cuisine in a way which is relevant to diners across the world,” Mr Mural said.
Michelin-starred chef Manjunath Mural will open a new restaurant at Brisbane Quarter.
The new restaurant will take traditional Indian preparation methods and blend them with flavours from Australia.
