Tickle your tastebuds with pizza, pasta and cocktails at Nobby’s newbie, Zephyr Kitchen & Bar

Named after a not-so-small bullock called Nobby (true story), the pint-sized pocket of Nobby Beach has come a long, long way since the days of hazy cocktail-filled Sunday sessions at Little Beans and coffees at The Cave (if you know, you know). Nowadays, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to sensational tipple temples and top-notch neighbourhood nosheries. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the beachside suburb’s alluring promise of a fun time. Nobby’s newcomer Zephyr Kitchen & Bar brings each of these things together for the ultimate trifecta – kick-ass cocktails, toothsome bites and casual-cool vibes. Here’s everything you need to know …

Occupying the prized corner site on Lavarack Avenue (the space formerly home to Gods of the Sea), Zephyr Kitchen & Bar is the culinary lovechild from Tropic Vice’s visionary, Jimmy Tantsis-Hall. Jimmy has taken the reins on the venue’s next-level selection of swill and compiled a menu of bites to match. The result is a perfectly laidback-yet-sophisticated sip spot that is guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds. While Tropic Vice lends itself to daytime dining and spirited sundowners, Zephyr is envisaged as a dinner and drinks destination that transitions into a bustling cocktail and lounge bar as the evening rolls on. With casual bar-style seating lining the roadside as well as a clutch of low-set settings, Zephyr is equally as suited to intimate date nights, cocktail-filled catch-ups, and/or post-dinner tipples.

Hungry? You’ve come to the right place. Zephyr’s expansive menu caters to a wide cross-section of cravings. Those in the mood for a light bite can order a selection of starters such as oystersmarinated olivescalamari fritti and, trust us on this one, truffle-infused arancini. Those who have had dined at Toro’s will have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the pizza – hand-stretched, 72-hour dough topped with a scattering of toppings. Extending well beyond the regular selections, Zephyr offers more than a dozen different tomato-based and four white-based varieties. Rounding out the edible offering is a couple of pasta dishes and fresh salads. When it comes to the drinkables, Jimmy and the bar team have curated a well-rounded selection of sips ranging from the Zephyr White Choc Passion (vanilla vodka, passionfruit, white chocolate and grapefruit) to four different kinds of marg. On a budget? Zephyr’s mid-week special is a great way to eat your way through the menu on a budget with $25 all-you-can-eat pizza and $5 tapas plates that will leave your belly full and tastebuds spinning. Pair that with a curated cocktail or two and your week may just be looking a little brighter.
