Spicers Balfour Hotel has dished up a brilliant new addition to its accommodation experience with an onsite restaurant now open for in-house guests, functions and private dining events.
The restaurant is available to guests staying at Spicers Balfour Hotel in the inner-city suburb of New Farm.
“The Balfour Kitchen is a friendly, bistro style concept which still offers fine dining but with a much more familial atmosphere,” head chef Peter van Lunn said.
“The food is flavour and produce-driven but it’s not elaborate, in fact there are only three to five prime ingredients per plate. There’s a lot more heart and soul in it as opposed to a high-end restaurant; it’s a lot more honest and simple.”
“It’s hearty soul food,” Peter said. “It’s healthy food but it’s also a little bit decadent at the same time.
“We’ve also tried to keep with the theme of the old converted Queenslander – classic dishes but with a twist.”
Originally built in 1901, Spicers Balfour Hotel is a grand three-storey Queenslander that once housed returned World War II servicemen.
