BNE SUMMER 2013
Prime cut
Luke McEwan, ex-Rockpool, Sydney, now heads the kitchen at Cut, the
steak and tapas restaurant owned by the legendary Gambaro family and
right across the street from the seafood restaurant they have made famous.
Cut serves up a selection of prime cuts supplied exclusively by Stanbroke,
world-class beef sourced from properties in Queensland’s Gulf region in the
far north of the state. There are 13 beef cuts to choose from across Angus,
Wagyu and organic breeds and cooked to order on the US-style Montague
Broiler Grill. The Tomahawk is a meal for three, at 1.2kg, grain fed Angus,
wet aged up to
120 days and
with a marble
score of 3+.

Wining & Dining
On the waterfront
The Lighthouse
You can’t get much closer to the water’s edge
than The Lighthouse Restaurant and Café
at Cleveland Point – in fact, it has been seen
lapping the terrace at high tide. But you can’t
beat the views of Moreton Bay and the old
lighthouse across the parklands. It’s no surprise
that local seafood is the star of the menu
at this location, from wild Barramundi on
the restaurant selection to the fresh buckets
of prawns on the takeaway list. Restaurant
open 10am until late, café from 8am (7am
weekends) and takeaway until 8pm seven days.
Lighthouse Restaurant, 237 Shore St
North, Cleveland. Call (07) 3286 5555.

Northshore Riverside Café
It’s worth going the extra distance to the last
stop on the northern river route of the CityCat
to see just how much the Northshore at
Hamilton has changed. Less than 6km from
the CBD, passed Bretts Wharf and Portside
Wharf, the café is open for breakfast and lunch,
offering a family-friendly menu that includes,
for example, a kids version of the blueberry
pancakes for breakfast. And grown-ups will find
a better than average lunch menu that includes
a filo triangle filled with fig, vintage cheddar and
orange, toasted almond and beetroot chutney.
Northshore Riverside Café at 297
MacArthur Avenue, Hamilton. Call (07) 3868
4264. See

Mr & Mrs G Riverbar
Restaurant veterans Andy and Marcia Georges
are the Mr & Mrs G behind the bar of the
same name next to the couple’s iconic Il
Centro restaurant at Eagle Street Pier in the
city. Open from lunch until late every day,
it shares the talents of Il Centro’s executive
chef Catherine Anders, who creates the tapas
menu, and sommelier Shawn Gomes who
has compiled a wine list that is the perfect
complement to the river vista seen from
the window. There’s live music on Sunday
afternoons.
Mr & Mrs G Riverbar, Shop 6, Eagle Street
Pier, 1 Eagle Street, city. Call (07) 3221 7001.

Billykart a winner
Celebrity chef Ben O’Donoghue,
formerly of South Bank Surf
Club, has resurfaced in the
southern Brisbane suburb of
Annerley in a new venture with
his wife Dee. Their Billykart
Kitchen revives the tradition of
an old-fashioned corner store in
the revamped Clifton Hill Store on
Eric Crescent. Eat in – nothing reflects
the multicultural mix that makes up Brisbane better than Ben’s brekky
special of Aussie Asian eggs with king prawns, bacon and chilli – or grab
some gourmet deli goodies to take home, including fresh bread from the
Banneton Bakery. Open after dark Friday’s for summertime dinners…a
perfect way to wind down for the weekend. Open six days, licensed.
Billykart Kitchen, 1 Eric Crescent, Annerley.
Call (07) 3392 9275. See
