Vapiano Albert Lane reopens its doors following a major interior and menu makeover
From delectable discs of garlic bread to a brand-new way of ordering, Brisbane City’s Vapiano pizza and pasta bar has a number of new surprises tucked up its revamped sleeve.
As one of the restaurant chain’s most successful Australian venues, Vapiano Albert Lane has been keeping city workers and shoppers fed and watered for the past 11 years. A well-deserved makeover saw the flagship restaurant shut up shop for four months, before reopening the doors to reveal a stylish new look and approach last week. The Brisbane venue is the first Vapiano to implement a comprehensive QR ordering system, meaning you can stay seated at the table while selecting your ideal spread. The menu has benefitted from a few new tasty additions, including the long-awaited garlic bread – which sees decadent garlic butter smothered over slices of toasted ciabatta – as well as scoops of heavenly artisanal gelato from Maleny Food Co.
Tomas Scerbo from Interior Life has collaborated with the German Vapiano team to design a welcoming, homely venue where every detail from the lighting to semi-private dining spaces has been carefully considered. DCB Developments brought the new two-level fit-out to life, now offering diners an entirely new eat-in experience. Albert Lane is a cashless restaurant and only accepts major credit cards, AMEX and Apple Pay. Choose to eat in, take away or even have your nosh delivered via Deliveroo or UberEats.
